Scott Heim

Scott grew up in a small farm community in central Pennsylvania.  Church, family and work were a central part of his life.  He came to the realization in elementary school that his relationship with God was influenced by his family, but it was a personal decision he had to make and his parent's faith would not be enough to ensure him eternal life.  He remembered making his decision publicly at a church service.   Jesus Christ gave him eternal life then and since then he has never doubted the decision he made.
