One of Bruce's greatest moments in life was in 2001 when he discovered Jesus.  Since then Bruce has been involved in the Men's Gatherings for over 12 years and has been praying with the Billy Graham Library for personal, professional revival for over 4 years. Even though Bruce's book Breaking Through The 4 Barriers To Quality was written 15 years before receiving Christ, these same barriers are evident in our relationship to Jesus Christ.
