Personal Testimony

I was 8 years old. I accepted Christ at GA camp in Palacios, Texas, during one of the evening services.  Karen was the counselor I talked to.  She was a cheerleader at the high school and I remember being amazed that God could use young people to lead others to Christ. Since then I have attended Preteen Camp as a counselor for several years, as an adult. The affect camp had on my life was life-changing and I look forward to camp each year for the opportunity to impact children's lives for Christ.

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

My personal call to ministry is based on Deuteronomy 6, to equip parents to train their children and provide children with a secure foundation developing their relationships with God.
