In Boyer, Wainwright found someone who was a committed Christian and who lived a godly lifestyle. Wainwright took notice, and began talking to Boyer about why his life was different.”

But it was a transition that did not go easily when a number of members, including Kennedy’s daughter, tried to oust Tchividijian.”
