Getting Involved

Say hello…

Where are you from?
I currently live in Decatur, Ga. Born in raised In Georgia. I have 5 beautiful sisters and 5 amazing brothers.
What led you to join Connect?
I am currently serving in the Army National Guard on a combat deployment in Afghanistan and am looking to change careers when I return. I have been with Ansley Atlanta Real estate up to the deployment. For the past 6 months I have had the privilege of being used as a vessel to lead our church services. Never in my life could I imagined the result of reading the gospel in a dangerous environment and preaching the gospel openly to our fellow brothers and some Afghan partner forces. We have had 3 baptisms here and God continues to move. I have always been a fan of Ravi and have listened to his podcast multiple times over. I want to say thank you for representing Jesus so well. I pray somehow I too can have the faith to continue to preach in dangerous areas and or answer questions like you and your team has. Thank you all.

How do you hope to contribute?
My wife and I would love to contribute and or I would love a job. I don’t care where or what. I do believe I can spew out as a vessel what the Holy Spirit wants to say and I am desperate to continue to learn. I have been so thankful for what God has taught me through the Bible so there is no shortage there. I am 30 years old and want to represent Jesus full time. I understand I can do this anywhere. I return home from serving in 1 month.

Thank you for sharing the Gospel on your deployment especially in Afghanistan. I have no doubt that God will find a church for you to pastor, you have the will and He has the way, what a blessing to any community that will be. The point of view is different through the eye of a soldier. Please know we continually pray for you and all our forces,home and abroad, your service is so dearly appreciated.
