A Former Drug Addict’s Journey From Homelessness to Working for President Reagan to Sharing the Hope of Jesus

“All of these things would never have happened without Jesus being in my life.”

Ken Barun calls himself one of the original hippies. Growing up in New York City, Ken fell into drug addiction in his teenage years. After ending up homeless in Houston, he got sober after someone told him that God had other plans for his life besides addiction.

Ken went on to work in the White House with the Reagan administration and at McDonald’s doing charity work. But he still felt something missing in his life, until he surrendered it to Jesus. Today, Ken works here at the BGEA, and he shares his story on this episode of GPS: God. People. Stories.
