As God’s Great Outdoors approaches the 20th year of airing the radio program, this interview is a look back over the ministry’s time. Gerry visits with a retired Ken Beck, the past owner of the Black Widow Bow Company, in the rolling hills of Ken’s home located in Nixa, Missouri. The two look back on their first meeting in person at The Trophies of Grace White Tail Deer Hunt in southeast Ohio. This annual event has been going on for over 23 years now, put on by a chapter of Christian Bowhunters of America, The Lord of the Harvest Archery Club. Ken discusses his life’s journey and how he was blessed to be used by God to help the ministry of God’s Great Outdoors get started in July of 1996. Ken speaks on outdoor ministry and how important it is that the listeners consider being involved, as Christianity is under fire.

About Gerry Caillouet

Gerry Caillouet was born the 21st of April 1955 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The family were members of a church that sadly emphasized good works at the expense of grace. This perpetrated Gerry's youthful rebellion against the things of God - until later in life, when his first son was born.

The two most memorable years of Gerry's childhood were spent living on his grandparents farm in upstate New York. Gerry's father instructed him in firearm safety, archery and fly fishing. Gerry spent summers visiting his older sister in the upper peninsula of Michigan. All this stirred a desire for adventure in the outdoors.

After finishing high school, Gerry joined the Marine Corps for adventure. There his rebellion increased. He occasionally dropped in on church, but had no interest in knowing God.

When his tour of duty over in 1976, Gerry and Cyndi were married. To their joy, they had their first son, Courtney. But the young marriage was in trouble. The couple stayed together for their child's sake.

Finally, a co-worker of Gerry's shared about a father's responsibility to care for his children's spiritual well-being in addition to the physical needs. Gerry, feeling condemned by how he had lived - and not understanding God's unconditional love and grace, was sure he would go to Hell when he died. But Gerry did not want his son to make the same mistakes and then to suffer the same fate. So, Gerry began to seek the truth, and he eventually accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior in 1978! Within two weeks his wife Cyndi received the Lord also! Soon their daughter Katie was born, then two years later their second son, Clinton was born. Praise the Lord for this Christian family!

God turned Gerry's love of the outdoors and of adventure in to a ministry that reaches out to unsaved men, women, and children that share these interests. Gerry hosts and produces this nationally syndicated Christian radio program, and Cyndi is the Director of Operations.
