There's nothing but smooth sailing for Gavin McLeod these days.

The actor, now 82, rose to fame playing Captain Merrill Stubing in the hit '80s series The Love Boat, but over the years, he's been steering an entirely new course for himself – one firmly anchored to his identity as a man of faith.

Now, in an interview with Religion News Service (via The Huffington Post), the actor, who is a devout member of the Pentecostal church, speaks out about his spiritual journey – one that took him from Roman Catholicism to the New Age movement to Pentecostalism. (He proudly describes himself as "ambassador for Christ.")
