Agents of Change (AOC) has changed my life and my spiritual walk. Before being a part of AOC, I can say I only knew God through my parents and thought that was enough. I wasn't a bad kid, but I definitely wasn't on fire for God.
I will never forget the first time I went to Teen Church back when Agape's services were at the Rahway Daycare Center. I went in expecting nothing, but Pastor DeWayne preached and it really got to me. I remember crying because the message seemed to be for me. When service ended, Pastor DeWayne and an elderly man approached me. The elderly man said he wanted to pray for me because he saw God doing wonders with me in the future. He said that I was going to help change lives. That impacted me a whole lot.
While at an AOC camp retreat, it all became clear. I need to know God for myself. No matter how holy my parents are, that doesn't make me pass for anything. Over the years, I have gotten closer to God and have shared what I have with others. AOC is truly a blessing to me as well as many others.
