I believed in Christ as my savior about the age of 13, but shortly after my parents stopped attending church and naturally I did also. It wasn’t until about 1990 when I took a course called “Master Life” that I began to grow spiritually. This is when the Word began to transform my mind and life to the glory of God.

I love the cross section of individuals we have at NLBC. As a church speaker for the Gideons I get to worship on Sunday mornings with several other churches. Sadly some have no children or youth and no racial diversity. I remember one day at work a Cambodian child came up to me and said, “You go to my church.” Indeed I do and would not want it any other way.

I was raised as a Christian and accepted Christ at 12yrs old then baptized. During my teenage years my faith became detrimental to my life. After marring church became an iatrical part of our lives.
