At 17, Rashawn was lying on the cement bleeding out from a gunshot wound. At 26 years old, Rashawn was in a plush Hollywood mansion with a gun in his mouth ready to end it all. All his life he had been pursuing pleasure, trying to prove his 4th grade teacher wrong who had told him he wasn’t enough, pursuing fame. But none of it delivered. And in a moment between eternal life and death he heard the ping of a social media message from the only Jesus follower he knew. This is Rashawn Copeland’s story. Rashawn is an Online Pastor with the Life Church Bible app team and host of the Scripture and Stories Podcast. His latest book is Start Where You Are. Please share this gripping story!
