Kay Coles James Became a Christian Under the Preaching of Billy Graham and God Has Used her to Do Great Things


She is the president and founder of the Gloucester Institute which is an organization that trains and nurtures leaders in the African American community. She was the director for the United States Office of Personnel Management. She was nominated by George W. Bush in 2001 and served in that position until 2005. Prior to that appointment, she served as Virginia Secretary of Health and Human Resources under then-Governor George Allen and as Senior Vice President of the Family Research Council. She was also the dean of Regent University’s government school. She is a current member of the NASA Advisory Council.

She is a graduate of Hampton University and is the recipient of numerous honorary degrees, including the Doctor of Laws Degree from Pepperdine University. In 2003, she was named the 2003 Distinguished Christian Statesman by Dr. D. James Kennedy, in which she was described as a Christian statesman who “makes it clear that the only way to transform any culture is from the inside out and that ‘the children of God will be called upon to lead the way.'” She is a wife, mother of three children, and grandmother of five.

She committed her life to following Jesus Christ while watching Billy Graham on television before entering college. She said that it was while sitting with other students at an InterVarsity Fall Conference in Virginia, that she heard the conference speaker describe the sacrificial death of Christ on the cross and realized that God had a calling for her life. She said it was then that she told God, ‘God, I am available to be used by you. Here I am.’ She said, “I did not have a plan beyond ‘What is the next opportunity to serve?’ I will tell others, if you’re willing to do that and really mean it, hold on, because you don’t have a clue as to where your life is going.” Her name is Kay Coles James.

This is the “Chief of Sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, and just as Kay Coles James gave his life to Christ, may I encourage you to do the same.

Here is how: John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you. No matter what you have done. “that He gave His only begotten Son.” His name is Jesus Christ. He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again. “that whosoever believeth in Him”, the word “whosoever” means anybody at anytime. “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation. “should not perish” where? in hell. “but have everlasting life” in Heaven with God.

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!

Remember, friend, Believe by faith. Share the faith. and Keep the faith!
