Testimony – How I became a Christian I was blessed to be born to a couple who loved and served Jesus. My father was in ministry, so I grew up a “preacher’s kid”. I loved Jesus, loved learning about Him, and was surrounded by wonderful people who enjoyed sharing His story. I was young when I started asking if I could be baptized. I knew I sinned, and I knew Jesus died for those sins, and I understood that Jesus How COVID has affected us

Testimony – How I became a Christian I was born and raised in Canton, OH. I grew up going to church with my family several times every week. Around the age of 8 I really started to become curious about God and began to seek Him out. It didn’t take me long to decide that I wanted to spend eternity with Him, so I accepted Jesus as my savior and was baptized in the 3rd grade. My relationship with Christ How COVID has affected us

Darrell Boger

Testimony – How I became a Christian I had been introduced to Jesus at a young age, and always considered myself a believer, but failed to actively pursue Him throughout my early life. A few poor experiences informed my uninformed self that “church wasn’t for me.” I spent my time practicing my trombone and anything else that made noise. I ended up back in church thanks to an active local music ministry. Not only did it redefine what ‘church’ was, How COVID has affected us
