Testimony from our student leader at Pompano Beach High: Ottavia

“I did not grow up in a Christian household. My family was not religious and we never went to church. Growing up I believed that Christianity and religion wasn’t reliable or factual.

I had a friend in high school who was a Christian and she would always talk to me about God. She was in a First Priority Club and knew I wasn’t interested, but she kept inviting me to things and sharing about God with me. During the summer of my junior year, she told me to watch a film called “A Case for Christ” and I did, expecting nothing to change. Seeing the evidence and the undeniable proof of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection was real, was really eye-opening. As time went on seeing all of the pieces come together and seeing that everything was true, experiencing things for myself and hearing other people’s testimonies made me realize that it really is true!

I accepted Jesus that summer.

After becoming a Christian, I knew I wanted to be involved in some sort of ministry and remembered that we used to have a First Priority Club when I was in middle school. I looked to see if we had one at my high school and we did! I am now in my senior year of high school and am the student leader for my school’s Club. I’ve been able to share the Gospel and see lives forever transformed by the truth of Jesus Christ. I have been so blessed and honored to be part of a Club that cares so much and takes the time to teach and share the Gospel.

One of the biggest things I’ve learned being a part of my First Priority Club, is that there isn’t enough time. We need to be bold for Christ, because you never know what will happen or what seeds you plant in people’s lives. It’s amazing and I’m so thankful.”
