One of the great struggles facing followers of Jesus Christ, especially in high school, is assurance of salvation. Because our relationship with Jesus is spiritual in nature, doubts can creep in at various times. Moreover, assurance of salvation impacts many aspects of life including anxiety/depression, service in God’s Kingdom, and love for the Lord. We believe this is a highly relevant topic for high school students and believe everyone who comes (mature believers, those new to a relationship with Jesus, and unbelievers) will grow through this focus.

Sam has 12 years of pastoral experience in the U.S. with a B.S. from Erskine College and Masters of Old Testament from Fordon Conwell Theological Seminary. Currently Sam is pursuing a Th.M. at Union Seminary in Wales, U.K.
Martha Margaret has a B.A. in Social Studies from Erskine College and is pursing a Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from Erskine Theological Seminary. They have four children together: Joel (20), Andrew (17), Ethan (15), and Gloria-Noelle (8).
