I started attending church with my parents when I was 16 years old. I remember my parents praying a prayer of salvation, so therefore I prayed also believing this was my salvation. The difference between my parents and I was that they understood the gospel message, but I didn’t. I held on to this false assurance of salvation until the age of 21, where I came to the realization of my lostness, repented from my sin, and believed upon the Lord Jesus Christ for my deliverance from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of God.

"Shane Pruitt did an excellent job as our main speaker at Super Summer Oklahoma 2014. Shane connected very well with the students and the student leaders. His communication style always keeps the audience fully engaged in the message. One of Shane’s strengths is his ability to communicate the gospel in a manner that helps his listeners understand their identity in Christ. Shane’s passion for Jesus and extending the Kingdom is very evident. I would recommend Shane Pruitt without reservation. God is using him to bless so many simply because he answered God’s call on his life."

I never have to worry what I am getting when I use him. I have personally used Shane and wholeheartedly recommend you to consider doing so as well. You will not be disappointed!"
