Hello, my name is Scott Page Jr. I was born on January 21, 1993 in Brandon Florida. My family moved to York, Pennsylvania shortly after I was born. I have two brothers Michael and Donald Page. I did not grow up in church, but I would occasionally attend the Youth Group at Lighthouse Baptist Church in Dover, Pennsylvania. Growing up, I got myself involved into drugs and gangs at a very young age which caused me to head in a downward spiral. By the age of 15 I was addicted to drugs and did not know where to turn. After overdosing on drugs on my 18th birthday, I knew that I needed to make a change. I moved in with my Aunt and Uncle who were faithful members of Lighthouse Baptist Church. They required that I attend all services at the church in order to live with them. Grudgingly, I agreed to the terms and conditions. I started faithfully attending Lighthouse Baptist Church and God began to really work on my heart. Pastor Walsh, who is the Pastor of Lighthouse Baptist church, would get up from behind the pulpit and preach about how Jesus Christ died and paid for the sins of the world and that I was a sinner and needed to be saved. I ignored God’s salvation because I did not want to give up my drugs and smoking. It was not very long at all before the Lord really got a hold of my heart. I began attending the Reformers Unanimous Program and my heart was overwhelmed with conviction. Right after the RU meeting, I went home and cried out to God and asked Jesus to save me from my sins. I accepted Jesus as my savior! God then began to work on my heart and my life began to change. I no longer had a desire to use drugs or be in rebellion to God’s Word. God then began to work in my heart about surrendering to be a Pastor. I talked with my Pastor about what the Lord was doing in my life, and he recommended that I go to Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City. I surrendered to the call to preach and began my journey at Heartland Baptist Bible College. The Lord has been very good to me with his abundant mercy and grace.
If your struggling with an addiction and don”t know where to turn, I invite you to come to the RU meetings. Let us be a help to you.
