Hey man. Here's a question, how did you come to know Christ?

Great question, Jonathan!

Short Answer:

Rewind back to when I was 10 years old (I am 24 now). I just began going to church with a friend through a Wednesday night bus ministry at a church down the road. I had never been to church and my mom and godmother weren’t Christians either. I enjoyed it so much that I kept going back each Wednesday and Sunday. Oh how Christ was working on me through that. About a year later, God ‘saved’ me. We were singing a song at the end of Sunday service when I felt the Holy Spirit drawing me so strongly. I knew what it was. I went to the front and told my pastor that I knew I needed Christ. He announced to the church that I desired to be saved. He then took me to lunch and explained to me (from Scripture) what it would cost to follow Christ. He wanted to make sure that it was genuine. He did not lead me in a sinner’s prayer, but taught me how to pray for the very first time. It was there in that restaurant that I began following Christ. That’s it in a nutshell.
