American Candidate Park plans to use fame as “a platform to witness for Christ.”
Schoolteacher and evangelical Christian Park Gillespie won the title of American Candidate, but what he “feels he has really won, he says, is a platform to witness for Christ,” according to the Agape Press. Park says people need to recognize “that, no matter where we are at, that’s a holy calling, and we better be serious about that and realize the clock is ticking. We’re not always going to be here. We’d better carry the light credibly.” He says he’s “been able to have a larger classroom and able to have a dialogue with a lot more people” since his win, and is “going into the secular and the Christian communities. And really, for the Christian, there is no secular community. Both communities are intricately linked because we’re to be in the world, not of it. We’re to be salt and light. We’re to engage the culture. And I’m having a chance to move in and out of both situations and speak truth.”
