Personal Testimony

I accepted Jesus when I was 9 because of a power band we had made in Sunday school.  I was given a prayer that went with it and I said that prayer one night as I lay in bed.  I was so proud, that I got up and told my parents. When I read the prayer to them, my dad asked me what it meant…I was dumbfounded.  The next night, my dad took me out for a guy’s night.  We went all over town and he explained to me what that prayer meant.  He explained to me about the beautiful Gospel of Jesus.  What I had known for years became a reality to me that night.

What do you feel like God has called you to do in your area of ministry?

I feel like God has called me to prepare students to have a faith that is real and their own.  When they graduate and leave home, their love for Jesus will, prayerfully, continue throughout their lives as they marry and raise families of their own.
