CBC’s yearbook, the Carillon, included 150 salvation testimonies from students and faculty in its 2018 volume. These personal stories regarding the life-transforming factor of Jesus Christ correlated with the yearbook’s theme, Centralize, and the theme verse, Romans 12:2: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” (ESV)
The testimonies below were published in the 2018 Carillon. – Melody Siebenmann, Carillon co-editor

“I didn’t dedicate my life to Christ until the age of 17. It wasn’t because of some magical life changing sermon or camp I visited, but because of the conviction I was feeling from the sinful life I was living. I was broken and took in anything that the world gave to me; I was a hypocrite. It wasn’t until one Saturday night in 2015 when I finally listened to the Lord when He told me, ‘Enough.’”
Jessica Hager, Current Student
“I had my initial salvation when I was around seven. A few years later I went through a lot of changes and began to question what it meant to be a Christian. That all changed at SOAR in 2010 when Donny Parrish spoke about dedicating your life to Christ. I felt the Spirit move in me and I dedicated my adult life to him. Five years later, God called me to children’s ministry, and I have been working and praying toward my calling ever since.”
Reagan Fellers, Current Student
“It was a few days before Christmas. My mom was sitting on the couch and I remember breaking into tears because deep down I knew I wasn’t saved. My mom pulled me onto her lap and asked me what was wrong, and I told her everything. That day was when I truly got saved My life since then has not been perfect, but I always know God has me and I can rely on Him for anything.”
