Summary of Article

Last year at Pima Community College in Tucson, Arizona, more than 3000 students graduated. Among them, one student stood out. Dax Crocker, age 40, graduated with honors from Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society with a GPA of 3.9. As one of the oldest in his class he simply said never give up on your dreams. He left Guatemala and came to the United States at the age of 14. He was forced to drop out of high school to support himself. Crockers’ dream was to become a minister. He traveled around the world with his wife as a missionary. He decided he needed help with his career so he turned to Pima Community College to study Religion and Philosophy.

When he returned to school he found himself enrolled in the same community college his daughter was attending. They even took a class together. He described his class with her as interesting. It made a strong impression on them, teaching them both, no matter how long it takes to achieve, pursuing your dream is worth it.

He is now pursuing a bachelor’s degree in religious studies at the University of Arizona and hopes to earn his Master’s at Harvard.

Our Spirit Led Interpretation

This is a special story of patience and the calling on one man’s life to serve the Lord. Clearly from the beginning of his journey he has helped many people that God has placed in his path. He is a dedicated father and an inspiring person to many who encounter him. God has taught Dax to be patient and complete the first step to becoming an accredited minister. God’s call can come at any time. If we stay committed in our relationship with God he will bring us closer to him and bring us closer to our dreams.

“Sometimes we let our dreams because life gets in the way, but every now and again they resurface as if to point us to our destiny.”-Amazing Moments
