Before becoming president of Amazing Facts, Pastor Doug Batchelor was considered a troubled youth, and ran away from home at the age of 15 years old. He was constantly getting in fights at school, and had suicidal fantasies during his upbringing. Batchelor also had a history of drug use and spending time in jail before living in a cave in Palm Springs. He eventually found a Bible left in the cave and began reading it. This lead him to commit to Christ and turn his focus to spreading the gospel to as many people as possible.
