We are all on a path, our own personal journey. Some paths are more difficult than others. My personal history is not a shock and awe story. What happened to me has happened to many others. I share it in order to provide a context for hope and encouragement. As a young man in my [...]

My name is Killian Washington. I'm from New Orleans. I've always believed in Jesus Christ, but I haven't always followed Him. I was raised Catholic, an altar boy for seven years. All that time I committed so many sins it wasn't funny. Alcohol, drugs, and sexual promiscuity were an everyday part of my life. After [...]

When I was ten years old, my mother was baptized. I remember very well that Wednesday night when she handed me her purse during the invitation song and said, “I’m going down front. Wait here for me.” When the baptism was over, she came out to an almost empty auditorium, no throngs of people to [...]

Serving with a Heart of Loyalty and Love

Being Discipled Changed My Life / Sean Jackson

I have called Jesus Christ Lord and Savior since 1981. While much of my experience as a Christian has been without significant growth or milestones, one thing has shaped my spiritual life more significantly than anything else. In early 2010 I found myself in the emotional struggle of a divorce. During that time David Nolan, [...]
