Jay saw his life changed at the age of 21 when he accepted Christ into his heart and left behind a life of atheism and nihilistic self destruction while attending Kennesaw State University (KSU) in Kennesaw, Georgia. He studied communications and theater at KSU, and his background in performance and speech combined with his love of study made him very comfortable as a lay teacher and preacher in the church. He worked in the commercial HVAC industry for thirteen years, the last six as a commission salesman, before God called him into full time vocational ministry.
Jay has spoken to churches, men’s ministries, youth groups, and school assemblies on defending the theistic world view, the sanctity of human life, and his testimony of how God took him from a hostile pro-choice atheist to a Christian pro-life advocate.
