My wife Julie and I have been married since June 2009. We’ve got one son, Lucas.
I gave my heart to the Lord on an Encounter Retreat hosted by City Church. The day was February 18, 2007. I was skeptical about whether or not Jesus was really the Son of God. I didn’t really trust people, but that day, Jesus moved on my heart. I felt His love and kindness and decided to let Him in and become my Lord. In exchange, He filled me with the Holy Spirit, and delivered me from smoking and drinking. If that wasn’t enough, He touched my heart because He completely healed me of an intestinal condition with which I’d been struggling for 13 years at that point. I’m still so thankful for what He did that day...It’s just a privilege to serve Him however He sees fit.
