"...and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God." Eph. 3.19

Mark’s testimony:

As a young child perhaps around 9 or 10, I prayed the ‘sinner’s prayer’ at a children’s church alter call given by my Grandfather. From then on I was content to classify myself as a Christian if anyone ever asked. I believed in Jesus. By the time I graduated from High School I was eager to exercise my independence and was not at all living out the Christian life. The choices I made did not include God and were very selfish. I lived the next 15+ years focused solely on my own guidance and did not concern myself with God or His desires for my life.

My selfish tendencies changed when Josie and I had our 1st child in 2001. I knew that I should have my family in church just like I was at that age. We searched around for a church and began attending Lindsay Lane Baptist. After a few years of playing church on Sunday and living a worldly life during the week, the Holy Spirit convicted me to stop playing and get to work. My seared heart had been softened by the hearing of the Word, as well as the service of His church around us. Josie and I joined the church in March of 2006 after I recommitted my life to be a true follower of Jesus and followed this up with Baptism. We immediately began serving in the Awana program.

My service to God in Awana is fueled largely in part by the wonder of what my life could have been like had I been discipled as a youngster and had the training and mentoring Awana affords young children. I am amazed at how biblically grounded an Awana graduate is and I desire to see more children achieve such training. My calling is to reach as many children and youth and offer them the opportunity to train them with a biblical world view.

We are based in Athens Alabama. Our sending church is Lindsay Lane Baptist Church. We go wherever the need is. Here I am, send me.
