I felt both excited and honored to have been invited to join IBLP’s staff.
I was optimistic about the opportunities that were ahead as we arrived at the IBLP campus the next day. My younger sister had made a brief visit to IBLP headquarters several months earlier and had made a few friends, so I was glad that I already knew a few people at Headquarters.
While I would talk to these young ladies on occasion, I was well aware of IBLP’s stance that this should be a season of ministry, and that I needed to be careful not to “defraud” any of the young ladies at Headquarters by giving any of them undue attention.
I said goodbye to my family in Knoxville, Tennessee, where we had traveled to attend the yearly Advanced Training Institute (ATI) annual conference, and climbed aboard one of the many vans transporting IBLP staff back to Oak Brook, Illinois. Benjamin Harrison outside Indianapolis, Indiana, and enjoyed the Fourth of July celebrations.I remember she laughed a few times, and afterward I thought to myself, “that went well.” A few days later I ran into Rachel outside the Staff Center and we chatted for about 15 minutes.Again, I didn’t give the conversation a second thought as there were plenty of people walking past us as they came in and out of the Staff Center.Once I arrived at Headquarters, I found that I enjoyed the collegial atmosphere of interacting with both young men and women.
Despite my fears, interactions with members of the opposite sex were permitted so long as we did not single each other out or give undue attention to a member of the opposite sex.
It didn’t occur to me that I had done anything inappropriate, nor did I feel like I had broken any rules. I was stunned the next morning when I was summoned to Bill Gothard’s office.
