DROPPED-OUT, TURNED-ON THEN FIRED-UP FOR GOD
A story of hope for the baby boom generation
Michael MacIntosh had seen and done it all: marriage on a whim that lasted six weeks; UFO-watching in a drug-induced haze; incarceration in the mental ward of the Orange county Medical Center. He was a free spirit, a product of the '60s. He couldn't have been more miserable.
By 1970, his desire to follow the lifestyle of the Beatles had led him nowhere, and on his twenty-sixth birthday, MacIntosh found his true Savior Jesus Christ. Two years later he was ordained, his marriage was restored and, in 1974, he started teaching a Bible study in San Diego at the insistence of friends. Twelve people were in the original group.
Today, ten years later, thousands are being reached directly through Horizon International Ministries.
