I was raised in a non-Christian home. While I was growing up,my mother usually took me to Church at least on the holidays. From when I was eight years old until I was twelve years old, she took me just about every Sunday. She did her best to raise me the way she knew how: to be a “moral” and law abiding citizen. When I became a teenager, I found “better things” to do as a young person. I would still go to Church on the holidays at times, but I was no Christian and I don’t remember ever hearing the Gospel, up to that point.
When I went into the Army after high school, God began to work in my life. I remember a young Christian man trying to have a Bible Study with me when I was in A.I.T. (Advanced Individual Training) in Ft, Sill, OK. I stayed with it for a short period of time and then lost interest because I still loved my sin. As I moved to my permanent station at Ft. Bragg, NC, God continued to work in my life. By the Grace of God, a Christian Supervisor was put over me. He began witnessing to me and I began going to Church on Sundays, with another fellow soldier. I also met someone back home in Maryland who would take me to Church when I visited.
God was working in my life in many different ways, but I still resisted Him. I knew I was on my way to Hell because of my sins, but thought I had “plenty” of time for “religious things” later on. It wasn’t until a tragedy happened in my life that I was awakened to the frailty of life. It wasn’t until my Grandmother died that I realized I could die at anytime. God has the power over life and death and He could demand that I give an account of my life at any time He chose to. As far as anyone knew, my Grandmother was in good health. Then, while visiting my mother in Maryland, she went into a coma. About two weeks later she died.
What God spoke to my heart through my grandmother dying was this: “What if you were to die, all of a sudden, like your grandmother?” I knew I was on my way to Hell and I knew a change needed to happen in my life. Shortly after she died, I was lying in my bed one night and decided to give my life to Jesus Christ. That night, before I went to sleep, I repented of all of my sins and put my faith in Jesus Christ. I surrendered ALL to Him and I haven’t been the same since. God removed from me my heart of stone and gave me a heart of flesh. He put His Holy Spirit in me which gave me new desires, desires to do what He wanted me to do instead of what I wanted to do. He cleansed my filthy conscience and made it clean, just like it was brand new. He transformed me from the inside out!
I immediately felt a call to Christian ministry. I ran from my call for a year or so and then I finally gave in. I started out by going to school part-time, while working on the side, until God provided a way for me to go to school full-time. Since I have become a Christian, I eventually graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Religious Education, with a Minor in Religion. Throughout my Christian walk, I have been a Youth Pastor, a Sunday School Teacher, a Worship Leader for Youth and Adults, a J.O.Y. Group Pastor of College/Career age people, an Associate Pastor, a Senior Pastor and I am now one of the Elders/Pastors or Refining Fire Fellowship.
I have always had a hunger and desire to see the lost saved, as well as to disciple/edify the saints. It was back in October 2004 that God began to make it very clear to me that He was calling me to be an Evangelist. It just wasn’t the right time for me to step out in faith yet. It was less then a year later that God called me out of the Pastorate for a period of time, to be full-time evangelist. So, my wife, my two children and I stepped out in faith, sold most of our possessions and moved East (from Louisiana) to North Carolina, where God led us to start PinPoint Evangelism (along with my wife’s parents).
God has blessed us richly for being obedient to His call on our life. He has never failed to fully provide for us and has used us to encourage, equip and edify tens of thousands of saints through evangelism seminars, “on the job training” and internet media. He has also used us to reach tens of thousands of lost sinners through open air preaching, 1-2-1 witnessing, passing out tracts and internet media. All glory to Him! We are just servants doing His will!
Things have now come “full circle”. I am still constantly preaching the Gospel in the open air and reaching out to the lost through 1-2-1 conversations, gospel tract distribution and internet media. I have been an Elder/Pastor of Refining Fire Fellowship since about 2008 and it has been great! It is the most Godly and Biblical Church that I have ever been a part of. May the Lord continue to “add to our number”! The fellowship is going deeper with God and God adds to our number as we are faithful to Him, His Word and His Great Commission. We have true fellowship with one another and care for each other as we should. God is Good! All glory to Him!
