Welcome Barry to the IAM family. Thank you for taking a few moments to introduce yourself and ministry... Berry’s testimony is an example of the redemptive generational influence of parents and Church. Please Lord multiply parents like him a million times.
How did you come to Christ?
I prayed a prayer at 3, then I remember making my own decision at 7 at a time I wanted to rebel, and knew I couldn't do that and say Jesus was Lord. I was baptized at 11, but in my 30's I realized what it is to surrender, and to walk in beloved identity knowing all things are working for the good of those who love him. I am excited for the future and being part of God's ever expanding kingdom.
How would you describe your current relationship with Christ?
It is a joy now that I have found the path of beloved identity. Knowing and exploring the deeper levels of who I am in Christ and what intimacy is with Him. I am now excited to see where each new adventure takes me knowing I have a loving Father and I can't fail. If it looks like failure its not the end. I'm also so enjoying the goodness of God and sharing that with others, as it is the goodnesses of God that leads people to repentance, not just the need for savior or knowing you are a sinner.
