Jimmy Nimon looks back on what it was like growing up in a non-Christian home, his life-changing encounter with God at 21 years old, and the seeds planted throughout his life to prepare him for his ministry today. Listen as he and Larry Kreider delve into his inspiring testimony, including his desire to be born again and the leadership skills he has found to be most effective.

He and his wife, Lydia, both share a passion for reaching the lost, training leaders, and planting churches.
