Outreach Leader

Jeffery Padia – Fayetteville, GA

I was a product of “Americanized” evangelicalism. Baptized at age 16, though a false convert, I quickly succumbed to the worldliness and sin that my flesh craved. I found myself in a prolonged downward spiral, increasingly wallowing in the dregs of my wickedness and rebellion against God. I pursued every worldly thing that I thought might make me happy. I spent several years as a drunkard, regularly driving intoxicated after nights of bar-hopping. But God, being rich in mercy, opened my eyes to see how patient and kind and merciful He had been to me in preserving my life, even though His justice could have fallen on me like a hammer. In the misery of my lowest depths, I became dreadfully aware that I was not owed another day of His mercy. It was then that God granted me eyes to see His beauty, and grace to believe in Jesus as my only hope. The riches of His kindness and forbearance and patience had, indeed, led me to repentance (Romans 2:4)!


My recent retirement from a 26 year career as an Air Traffic Controller here in Atlanta has afforded me the opportunity to attend several conferences, and has allowed some additional much-needed time to focus on becoming a better-equipped servant of the Lord. As a member of Faith Bible Church in nearby Sharpsburg, GA, I’m thankful to have been able to proclaim the glories of Jesus Christ and His gospel as a member of our nursing home visitation team over the past few years. God continues to grow me through ministry opportunities with Steven Ely (also attending this outreach) at local abortion mills, as well as with SFOI evangelist Jim Grega. This Kentucky Derby Outreach is yet more evidence of His grace, as I seek to serve and learn alongside many other brothers/sisters in the faith. This is my first outreach with SFOI.
