Sam Baggenstos

Glen Canyon National Recreation Area (Lake Powell)

My name is Sam Baggenstos, and I was raised in western Washington. Growing up, my parents would take me and three older siblings adventuring around the country, which instilled a passion for trying new things. I enjoy running, reading good literature, hiking, camping, and exploring God’s creation. Spiritually, I am learning how I fit into God’s grand story. God, especially as he has revealed himself in the book of Exodus, is teaching me that his will for my life lies at the intersection of pleasure and hardship. I am thankful for the gospel of Jesus Christ, and I am continually striving to learn what that means for me right now.

"It was especially neat to begin developing an eye for analogies and concrete images in creation, tying observations in with our relationship with God and seeing that there are, in effect, ...parables' all around us of God's care and the gospel."
– Jonathan, Calvin Theological Seminary 2011
