How were you introduced to the Church of Christ?

My Christian walk commenced just after graduating from college. I began studying with my wife, who had been a member of the West End Church of Christ for about a year.  I attended services with her and continued to study with Wesley Brown and eventually obeyed the gospel one Wednesday evening during Bible class.

One of the influencing factors of becoming a member of the Church of Christ was just watching some of the older brothers who were dedicated to Christ and how they were different from most of the men I knew growing up. Watching these men become strong leaders in the church inspired me to be more like them.  I began to shadow these men when they would visit the sick, or clean someone’s yard or handle the duties at the church building, so much so, that I was performing as a deacon even before I became one. I continued as a deacon to the best of my ability and when the opportunity to become an elder arose, even though some felt I was too young, I accepted the role.

My Favorite Scripture:

The scripture that I like to live by is Galatians 6:7. Every day we sow seeds, which can be positive or negative. It is a guarantee that whatever we sow, we will reap.  If we understand that principle then we are more thoughtful with the decisions that we make.
