RRJ: Your belief in Christ began in your home country of Nigeria, but in many ways it began before you were born when your father learned about Christ and trusted in Him for salvation and newness of life.  How did that happen in his life?

Mike and Jo Yates

RRJ: Can you begin by sharing when you two first trusted in Christ for salvation and made Him Lord of your lives?

 

Jo: I was 10 years old when I asked Jesus to come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior.  I responded to an altar call at Forest Park Baptist Church and was baptized shortly thereafter. This was the beginning of a journey with the Lord, and there were times of back sliding and other times of great spiritual growth. I believe that we all go through seasons in our walk with the Lord, no matter what our age.

 

Mike: I had heard about God and Jesus Christ throughout my young life, but I did not grow up in a church-going family, so I was never introduced to Jesus in a personal way, until I got married. At the age of 23, I responded to the invitation to accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior while attending a Fellowship of Christian Athletes conference.

Tommy McKinnon, Baptist Health

RRJ:   You had parents who taught you about Christ and you were active in church, but your faith drastically changed in your 30’s. Can you tell us what happened?

 

Tommy:   During my 20’s, I had simply turned the volume down on God. Sadly, I was totally focused on me, my career and my personal goals. As a result, my relationship with my wife, Sandy, began to suffer. But I began to hear from God at 30 and that still, small voice told me I needed to change.

Matt Phillips, M.D., OB/GYN and Associates

RRJ:  You were told the good news of the Scriptures all of your life by godly parents and teachers, but has God’s love and grace always been your primary motivation in life?

My relationship with Jesus began, as all relationships begin, with an introduction. God used so many people in my life to show me Jesus and to introduce me to the only One who can give meaning and purpose in life. Early in my relationship with God I spent my time checking off the boxes of do´s and don’ts of being a Christian, all the while trying to fit into the world.
