Northstar Story: Joe Holman & Sam Gest


On Easter Sunday we had the opportunity to listen as Jeff interviewed two friends about how God uses His followers for His purpose.

Joe and Sam met as Sophomores at Virginia Tech and developed a friendship through a shared major and common interests. Over the past two years however, there was a difference between them. Joe had a relationship with Jesus and Sam did not. In the interview we see how God uses Joe and his relationship with Sam to reflect the light of Christ through prayer and obedience.

On Spring Break Sam began to feel a pull. The Holy Spirit was working in Sam, and Sam was obedient, accepting Christ into his life that week! Like Peter and John in Acts 4, Joe and Sam had the opportunity to share the power and love of a Risen King.

“For we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard (Acts 4:20).”
