JP Pokluda weights in on a very important question that many of us cannot answer. That question is "Who is Jesus?" After committing many sins in his college years, he goes to Church to figure out who this historical figure that died for our sins really is.
This man's life was lost, and Christianity just seemed like a bunch of rules that he couldn't break. In college JP experimented with drugs, alcohol, and sex. At the time, it was the most fun thing he could imagine. But, just like everything else, it got old.. Trying to find something that didn't get played out or repetitive was difficult for him. Until he discovered who Jesus is.
Once JP figured out who Jesus was it changed everything. His story will really capture you in a way that many of us can relate to. Listen to JP's story for coming to Christ below: more >>
