Rusty’s life has been full of ups and downs. He hit bottom while incarcerated at the local jail. In his jail cell, Rusty stopped running from God. Somebody shared Rusty's Story with Matthew West, and Matthew in turn wrote a song called "Into The Broken," which was inspired by Rusty's Story and on his new album, Into The Light.

LISTEN   Dave, Bill, and Carmen introduce 25-year-old Rusty.  At night, Rusty was sleeping on a prison concrete floor with a small mat, but during the day he would spread hundreds of pieces of paper (his plans) on the prison floor, which would later become his ministry outreach.

LISTEN   After Rusty served his sentence, he didn't believe he could get a job, but God worked in spite of labels from society.  With a vision to help others coming out of prison and offering hope to the hopeless, Rusty now directs various facilities and outreaches under "The 180 Zone."
LISTEN   Rusty explains how his story got into the hands of Matthew West. 

A newly revealed, centuries-old papyrus fragment suggests that some early Christians might have believed Jesus was married. Dave, Bill and Carmen weighed in on the matter.
