About Dwight

I trusted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior when I was 9 years old while a evangelist shared the gospel. When I was 15 my Pastor challenged me to get into the Word of God and allow the Holy Spirit to teach me. It was from this that I really started to grow and hunger for the Word. This started me on the journey of seeking God's will and plan for my life. As a result He has led me to serve Him in children, youth & adult ministries. I really enjoy challenging other young people to get into the Word of God and allow it to change their lives.

About Cindy

At the age of 4 one evening my brother asked me if I was going to heaven. I told him, I must be Mom and Dad are. He proceeded to tell me that because we have all sinned we need a savior. I realized I had sinned and I knew Jesus had died on the cross. He explained that I needed to ask for forgiveness and believe that Jesus had died for me. That night I accepted Christ as my personal savior. I remember going out and telling my Mom.

Did I understand all that was involved in salvation? No, I simply believed that God's word was true and I needed Jesus to save me from my sins. I don't know of any drastic changes in my life. As a teen I made a public dedication of my life to Christ at WOL Island and gave all my desires, goals and ambitions to Him that day. John 3: 16
