Youth for Christ Nanaimo

I once was lost, but now I’m found. My lifestyle during my late teens/early twenties was one of drinking, drugs, and girls. But, I was so empty inside and living with no purpose or direction. This lifestyle led me to overdosing 5 years ago which was a real wake up call. When I came out of that, I felt on my heart that I really needed to get to church. One of the first times at a church in Nanaimo, my girlfriend (who is now my wife) and I responded to the altar call and received Christ into our hearts.

From that moment on everything began to change. Jesus delivered me from drugs, alcohol and pornography. Now I’m fully sold out for Jesus and burn with a passion to see others lit up with the same fire He’s given me. One of my favorite verses is Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God unto salvation for those who believe, first to the Jew then to the Greek. For in it (the Gospel) the righteousness of God is revealed.”

I’m driven by the Gospel, and my sole purpose in life is to become who He has created and called me to be so that when others see it, they will want what I have: the life of Jesus.
