I grew up in a Christian household and regularly attended a good church. But I never took the faith seriously and by high school and early college, I was in full rebellion against God. I remember the feelings of deep hopelessness I had.
In the summer between my freshman and sophomore years of college, the Pastor of the church I grew up in invited my girlfriend (now my wife) Paige and I to go to a week long seminar at a church in Charlotte. During this seminar, I genuinely decided to follow Jesus and submit my life to Him.
I didn’t know what it meant to follow Him though and had no one to disciple me. I was lukewarm at best for my college and early adult years. When Paige and I started having kids, I felt the weight of that and knew I needed to change some bad habits I had picked up along the way. Fortunately, I had a Pastor, and guys who became accountability brothers in my life, to disciple me. I can honestly say Jesus completely changed my life and I learned to truly submit to Him, which has given me hope.
Today, I truly love Jesus. He has give me a purpose to serve Him in my home, my church, and my community. I love to disciple younger guys, to help them as I know where they were at and what Jesus can do in their life.
