John’s Story

/ Stories

“I couldn’t be the person I wanted to be without Jesus. There was something I had missed my entire life—and this was what was missing. I stood up, and I said, ‘I Believe.’”

Growing up, John didn’t ever have a relationship with Jesus. He pursued his own interests, searching for satisfaction in his career and achievements. He was used to fixing his own problems, but as his life started spiraling further and further out of control, he realized he couldn’t do it alone. Out of desperation, John attended Mariners for the first time.

There, he met Robert, who lived down the street from John, and the two began to gather together as a Life Group. Through Robert, John learned about Jesus and accepted Him into his life for the first time. John’s Life Group began to grow, and together, the group went through Rooted and started serving together at Camp Pendleton. John experienced a fresh sense of hope and purpose, feeling called to show the young Marines and Sailors the love of Jesus.

Watch and see how God used John to serve in His Kingdom and transformed His outlook forever!
