As a pastor’s kid, I heard the Gospel frequently. I made a profession of faith as a very young child, but only did so because of the pressure of the situation I was in. When I was eleven years old, I was reading about the lake of fire in Revelation 20 while in my bedroom, and I knew that I was not sure if I was truly saved. So then and there, I prayed to God, told Him I was a sinner who deserved to go to Hell, and asked Him to take away my sin and save me. And I know that I am saved today because Romans 10:13 says “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” I did not understand everything about the Bible or about salvation, but I knew enough to know that I was a sinner, I could not save myself, and I needed Jesus to save me, so I called out to the Lord that day. I surrendered to preach the summer after I received Christ, and, through a progression of events, God called me specifically into the ministry of full-time evangelism. After watching myself and other teens get right with God at camp, preaching from Romans 1, and traveling with an evangelist, God confirmed my call to the ministry of full-time evangelism when I was seventeen years old. I enjoy deer hunting, playing the guitar, and football in any form—playing it, watching it…if it’s football, I love it. I especially love my Pittsburgh Steelers.
