“Wycliffe Bible Translators and the hundreds of other missions organizations doing good work around the world always need more men like the ones Alpha Tau Omega is producing,” Creson said. “It’s an honor to be initiated into an organization that is so committed to sharpening young men into strong, Godly leaders and building a community of active, engaged brotherhood.”
