After a ten year battle with addiction and self I fell over dead in the year of 2011, July to be specific. When absent from the body I was in the presence of God. It is REAL. You can't tell me different I saw the light and felt the magnified love that God has for us. It is indescribable!!
Alone and sitting in a hotel I felt like I was going to die again and I cried out to God for help. At that very moment there was a knock at the door and 4 sheriffs said they were there to take me to a hospital a half hour away. I told them I was addicted to 3 different drugs and no body could help me they replied we can.
I entered treatment and then went to live in a homeless shelter for men. I asked if I could volunteer at the church the Pastor who was the head of this facility replied No but a week later he asked me if a could fill in for a worship set. I said o.k. went and thanked God for allowing someone like me to worship Him again even if it was for one night. After a one evening worship set I came home and cried and thanked Christ for such an Honor to use my gift for Him then God made a way to help in the music ministry. Week after week I went back praying that the Lord would extend my days here on earth to be a blessing to His Kingdom and found the Love of my Life,Jesus.
I have spent the past year and a half reading over 145 Christian authored books and reading the Bible daily to renew my mind. Through this ordeal I have learned the unconditional love of Jesus and the not so acceptance of others.And so you know the Pastor who told me No is one of my Best friends to this day.The things he showed me were to love on people who have ridiculed me hated me and dismissed that I was true to the Way of Jesus. I have been blessed with a recording career and now multiple appearances on National T.V.
The band members you see are the ones who have gone through the restoration time with me and I am so thankful for there love. The vision Of prodigal is a gift from God, what started out as a way to give back to those that helped me along the way has become its own ministry and as we continue to minister the love of Christ we challenge those who think it can never happen for them to take a look at us. We thought the same before this the only difference is no matter what bad has happened we choose to believe and not give up. How can we when God is for
you who can be against you?
Our goal is to make music appealing to an audience of one and for the fans that want to here truth and develope a no holds bar mentality for the healing power of Jesus Christ. It is so freely available may we never believe the worlds machine of blinding the weak from the truth of Jesus Christ. We all struggle but its through the genuine love of Christ that this ministry has taken off in a short amount of time. We encourage you to ask questions regarding the hope of Christ in you and to never look back regretfully. Each day prepares us for the next and it is only by applying the word of God to each and every situation that we will overcome. God is Alive and He is waiting to change you and mold you into what He sees you as; Complete. Trust me if He can do it with me, He most definitely can do it with you!! God bless you and don't give up.
