Favorite Verse: John 12:24, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.”

My Testimony: “My freshman year of college I was faced with the questions, “who am I?” and “How do I want to live my life?” Being out from under my parents wing, all of the values that I had been taught growing up were now negotiable. In December of my freshman year, I attended a conference with a college ministry and it was at that conference that I placed my trust in Christ alone. I realized I was a sinner and that I couldn’t earn God’s favor on my own, only Jesus could do that for me because of his perfect life, death and resurrection.”
