Trophy of God’s Grace

Mike DiCuirci served on the music faculty at Cedarville for 37 years. He helped shape the music department into a nationally acclaimed program, founded the jazz and symphonic bands, developed the college pep band, and wrote the Cedarville fight song.

Even though his accomplishments are remarkable, Mike will quickly point to the One who made it all possible, the Lord Jesus. Mike came to Christ as a young man after facing a serious alcohol problem, which nearly cost him his life. He began seeking the Lord, first at a Christian concert and then at a church family seminar. Finally, he and his wife, JoAnn, who have been married 45 years, committed their lives to Christ while meeting with their pastor.

It’s quite a story, and one that Mike relishes in sharing, because it is Jesus who gets the credit and honor.  Mike’s life verse is 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things pass away; behold, all things become new.”

As he shares in the podcast, “I experienced that transformation. By the way, everyone who trusts in Christ, whether they’re young, old, dramatic, or not dramatic (story of salvation), is a walking miracle and has a life message to share.” It’s easy to see how Mike DiCuirci became known to his colleagues as a trophy of God’s grace.
