Favorite Verse: Acts 20:24, “But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.”

My Testimony: “I grew up in a home with my parents and siblings where Christ was placed in the center and I thought of the church like my second home. I placed my priorities in achieving success in academics, in athletics, and in friendships with the people around me. All of these things led me down a path of feeling lonely and empty inside. While attending the University of Southern Indiana in my first year, I attended a fall conference put on by Campus Outreach. It was there that God opened my eyes to my brokenness and sinfulness. I saw my need for Christ to be my Savior and take lordship over my life for the first time. God has changed my heart forever. I desire to give my life away for what God has called me to by sharing the Gospel and making disciples wherever He leads me.”
