I was in the 8th grade I can’t remember which Forward it was but Jentezen Franklin preached and sang on the piano “you are so beautiful.” I remember God showing me that he wanted to use me in ministry. We went to a few more Forwards after that, and I got the chance to meet/talk with Pastor he reaffirmed in me that I would do big things for the kingdom.
A few years later I was a leader with our team, and I got to take a selfie with Jentezen Franklin. Well we went home, and I remember I got to preach my first message at youth...They posted that pic and Pastor just said “preach good” on the comments. It was the encouragement I needed.
Now it’s 2018 and my wife and I are starting a church in Charleston, SC and it is because God used Jentezen Franklin, Blake, and the team to speak directly to me in that arena. One day I’ll preach on that stage and help others like me sitting in those seats realize they have a destiny and God wants to use them! Thanks y’all. We are starting Steps Church here but it’s partly because of all the messages from “way of the eagle” “dna of a leader” “robe rooster redemption” and songs that changed me, molded me into who I am today! Love y’all, forever grateful!
