At the age of seventeen I decided to give my life to the Lord and I was then baptized, however, at this time in my life I just wanted to avoid being saved. I did not fully understand the purpose of having a relationship with God. As an adult, I wanted to be a “good” father, “good” husband and a “good” church member. According to the worlds standard, I was successful and had things going the way I wanted them to be, however, having that life outside of God’s plan left me with a void in my life. I started finding myself depressed and then eventually stressed in the management field of my career and in March of 2003 I truly was tempted to end it all. Needless to say, God had other plans for me, God took what the enemy meant for evil in my life and used it for good. God promised to open doors no man could close and shut doors no man could open and His love for me changed my life. I am now living sold out to Him, not perfect in my own flesh but being perfected through Christ. My desire is to share that same love with all people and nations, to allow the Spirit of God to do for others what it has done for me. In this season, we have the blessing of the local church to go out and advance the kingdom by reaching out to those that have a desire to get know HIM, but are lost.
