Every Christian has an “impressive” testimony. There aren’t first and second class versions, because there aren’t first and second class sinners. “Dead in our trespasses and sins” (Ephesians 2:1-3) described all of us before God butted in (Ephesians 2:4).
But while all testimonies are miraculous, some are unusually gripping and encouraging. Mez McConnell has one of those stories.
Once an abused, addicted, homeless, Christian-despising criminal, Mez now serves as senior pastor of Niddrie Community Church in Edinburgh, Scotland, and founder of 20 Schemes, a ministry dedicated to building gospel-centered churches for Scotland’s poorest communities (“schemes”).
