On October 7, 1995, I was 14 years old, a freshman in high school.
I was, for the most part, a good kid, but I also knew I wasn’t always good. I came from a family that attended church, but faith was not a big part of our lives.
A friend from school invited me to the Newsboys concert, downtown, at the Cincinnati Coliseum. I didn’t know Josh was going to preach at intermission. I don’t think I knew who the Newsboys were either. I went because I was invited.
I don’t remember many details. That night was a blur, and it has remained blurry to this day. But I remember hearing a message that broke me. I walked down the aisle and look back on that night as the beginning of my faith.
Two decades later, I’ve been married 11 years, have 4 kids (2 adopted), lead worship at church, and am active in my community.
