“Vertical Leap: How Jesus found New York City Basketball Legend”
Mike’s special guest on “Quest for Character” was Bill Rieser author of, “Vertical Leap”.
Bill Rieser grew up in East Harlem, New York where he was considered a legend on the streets and basketball courts of New York City. His powerful slam dunk repertoire earned him the nickname 'White Jesus' and destined him for stardom in the NBA. But injuries in college and a lifestyle of excess and anger brought him to the brink of personal and professional destruction. Through the incredible, unconditional love of his wife, Carolynn and the faithful prayers of her church he found and accepted the Lord as his Savior.
Bill is the author of Vertical Leap, and is currently the Director of Recovery Ministries at Heartland Community Church in Rockford, Illinois. He and Carolynn have been married for 25 years and live in Rockford. They have one daughter.
