World Vision's Richard Stearns sets out to put an end to global poverty

As a student at Cornell University in 1973, Stearns was largely uninterested in religion — until he met Reneé Legg. "He was very cute," Reneé remembers. On their first date, Reneé gave Rich a Campus Crusade for Christ pamphlet. "There was a real lull in the conversation," she says. "And I always think those must be opportunities that God is giving me to step up to the plate." These days, the couple lives in Bellevue and attends University Presbyterian Church.
