Get to know Cam Priebe with 10 questions!

What are you reading right now?
Our supper and study group is going through the Gospel of Luke right now.  I just finished re-reading Faithful Presence by David Fitch. Starting to read The first 90 days, by Michael Watkins (because it is my first 90 days 😊 ) Also, I read Ephesians on a regular basis, just because.

If you could pick up a new skill in an instant what would it be?
Playing the guitar as good as my son!

Who’s someone you really admire?
I had the privilege of having breakfast meetings with Henry Schmidt (past president of Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary) during my time at the seminary in Fresno, California. I remember well his authenticity and willingness to share the joys and struggles of leadership. He also had a way of celebrating how God’s grace is real and evident in his life.

I also experienced and observed him believing in younger leaders, praying for them, encouraging them, and cheering them along the way. 

Got any favorite quotes?
“Jesus’ goal for his followers is never just a life without obvious sin, but a life filled with genuine love.” – Bruxy Cavey  

“We often judge ourselves by our intentions and others by their behaviour” – Stephen Covey. 

What was your favorite band 10 years ago?
U2

What’s something you want to do in the next year that you’ve never done before?
Catch a fish. I am seriously fishing challenged! I really enjoy being together with other people and I’m really good at casting, but I’m horrible at actually catching fish.

What’s your favorite place you’ve ever visited?
The beach at San Simeon Bay in California. I love the ocean, and we spent many Saturday’s with friends at that small rather out of the way beach. The memories made together are so good! 

What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard?
“Be gracious with yourself Cam!” 

How do you like your eggs?
Over medium or scrambled. 

What’s your favorite breakfast cereal?
Fruit loops, simply for health reasons.
