LANSING — 15 years ago, Pastor Wes Peppers was a 22-year-old former college football player struggling with a drinking problem. He remarked he was bitter, mean and contemplating suicide. And he was an atheist.

Today, at 37, Peppers is a sober, healthy family man who leads a 730-member congregation at Lansing Seventh-day Adventist church on the city’s west side.

He also battled cancer at age 28 and sepsis — blood poisoning — that nearly killed him. He’s told his story to thousands around the globe.

For 2 decades, Camp Doss, a summer Army medic training camp named for Doss, was held at a Grand Ledge campground owned by the MI Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
