Favorite Verse: 2 Corinthians 5:14-15, “For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.”

My Testimony: “I was raised in a Christian home, but I grew up with the misunderstanding that being a Christian is being a morally upright person. Whenever I thought about what happens after death, I drew comfort and security from my generally admirable behavior. When I got to IU, I was enticed by the social scene and explored what parties had to offer. It was around this time that I met a man on staff with Campus Outreach who began to share the Gospel with me. As he was sharing with me about who Jesus was, I came to realize that in knowing Christ I had more security than I could ever generate by my behavior and more joy than any substance could ever offer. Fall semester of my freshman year at IU I put my trust in Christ for the first time and have continued to walk with Him since.”
