Briefly describe how you accepted Christ?
I was a sponsor at a youth mission trip as a college student. Going into the week my mindset was to help my old youth group do a community service project. I had no desire for God to work in my life at all while I was there. Through the course of that week, He kept pursuing me to lay down my old life, that was wrecked with bad relationships and the partying scene to come and follow Him. I was scared to give up that lifestyle because I felt like I wouldn’t be strong enough to say no to peer pressure and eventually I would just let him down. He was persistent in pursing me and once the week was over I finally surrender and ask Him to help me love Him and follow in His ways. That was in July 2004 and He has never left me since!

What is your favorite verse and why?
John 15:4-5 – Remain in me, as I remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. Why? – Because I hung on to that verse the first year of becoming a new believer because I needed the reminder that God was always with me, I just needed to hang on to Him.
