When a heart truly surrenders to Jesus Christ, the life of that person is forever changed. Old habits are broken, new habits are formed, and the peace and love of God become more and more evident to those around them. That’s exactly what happened to the group of men who started CHANGED in Christ.
Founding Fathers from left to right - Clayton Upson, Jonathan “JP” Sauser, Chad Kent, Alejandro Rodriguez, and Alex Jeffries.
Coming from completely different walks - one thing we all shared in common was a past lived in rebellion to God. The confusion, pain, brokenness and shame that resulted only drove us further from the Lord. That is, until the message of the gospel and the love of God finally broke through!
As we began living according to God’s Word and pursuing His plan for our lives, with brand new hearts and brand new minds - nothing would ever be the same! The Lord brings certain people into our lives for reasons far greater than we could ever imagine. CHANGED in Christ Inc. is the result of His doing just that.
As we live out our faith and the command to “go and make disciples” - our desire is to shine a light, share the gospel, and show the love of God to as many people as we can. Leaving a mark and having an impact on this world from lives that have been CHANGED in Christ!
All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
2 Corinthians 5:18-21
Our mission is to create and foster events, programs and activities that provide men and women of all ages, backgrounds and ethnicities the opportunity to hear the gospel and experience the love of God, to encourage and help bring about life-changing relationships with Jesus Christ.
There is nothing more powerful than the love of God and the name of Jesus Christ. There is no distance, no situation, no condition or circumstance that is greater - and the most incredible part is that it is available to everyone!
Our desire is to take the gospel and love of God to people in practical and passionate ways. There are many who are uncomfortable walking into a church building on Sunday morning - we want to make sure they experience God’s love and encourage them in a personal relationship with Jesus.
