B2G - Getting Back to God

 B2G is the McCrays preaching ministry. Although the heart of B2G is youth, it is a ministry for all generations. The "B2G" of B2G Ministries stands for Back to God, which captures the longing of Samuel, who began it - for youth to get back to God. At present, he preaches for any church that will invite him, not just for youth. B2G's blog, H2O Live! is available though the previous link. Samuel's testimony follows:

"Joy...Full of Glory!"

Yes, I preach. (Don't let me sound flippant or conceited.) I'm young? Yes, I guess it would appear so. Since I was born in '93, it would be (to some) considered "special" that I (as a young man) do preach! Should this be so? No!

My heart's cry is that the young people of today would all serve God. Instead of living lives of crime and hurt, they could be experiencing true fulfilment and rest in living for God. Sure, it's not all a bed of roses, (the Bible calls the Christian life a fight,) but it sure beats living in the world. I should know!

"What? You?" someone may ask. "You just said that you were born in 1993! Unless you got saved yesterday, you couldn't have that much of a testimony!"

I was saved when I was about twelve, in case you wanted to know. Yes, my time as a sinner may be considered short by a vast majority, but that doesn't mean that I don't have a testimony! In fact, even if I hadn't tasted what the world had to offer, because I am saved, that is a testimony in itself to God's saving power. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God"!

I was brought up in a Godly Christian home, and professed faith in Christ at an early age. But, as these things sometimes go, my faith grew stagnant as time progressed.

I met a boy whom I'll call Tom. Ironically, we met at church. As young boys sometimes do, we began getting into some serious mischief together. Tom realized that what we were doing was wrong, but I was not so quick to catch on.

After a while though, I "cooled off" a bit. I began to realize that I was a sinner in need of Jesus.

I will never forget the day that Christ became my Lord. I was kneeling by my bed, praying and repenting of my sins, and suddenly joy like I had never felt flooded my soul. I had such a peace that made a smile never leave my face!

I didn't even have to tell my parents about what happend to me. Within the week, my Mom came to me and said, "Your Dad and I have noticed a change in you. Have you become a Christian?"

I have been serving Christ for around four years now, and He still floods my soul with His love! He is "joy unspeakable and full of Glory!"
(1 Peter 1:8)
