Greetings in the name of our
My name is Jody L. Hodnett. I was born in
Newnan, GA on February 20, 1978 to Jimmie and Melanie Hodnett.
Although I was not raised in a Christian home,
my parents made sure that I had some "religious" influence. My sisters would take me to church from time to time and any Bible knowledge we had was learned from the television. At the age of nine we
begin going to church as a family. I quickly realized that if I wanted to fit in, I would have to make a profession of faith. I went to the altar just as I had seen others do time after time, but
there was no difference in me. I was still lost and on my way to Hell.
At the age of thirteen, I heard a message by
Evangelist Milton Taylor on having a head knowledge of Jesus, but no heart knowledge. It was then that the Holy Ghost convicted me and I realized that I needed a Saviour. I trusted Jesus that night
and He has made all the difference.
Shortly before my sixteenth birthday, God
called me to preach the Gospel. I began preaching on the street, in local nursing homes. Soon was preaching on the radio and in local churches.
On April 13, 1996 while hosting a youth
meeting in Newnan, I met the most beautiful, godly young lady I have ever known. I began courting her in September 1996, and I married Ginger Lee-Ann Jones on March 14, 1997.
On January 1, 2003, we welcomed our first
child Autumn into the world. Nearly seven years later, on December 30, 2009, God gave us our second child, Savannah.
God has allowed me to Pastor two churches. One in Alabama
and one in Florida. I am also privileged to have been a full-time evangelist. For sometime, God dealt with me about taking the Gospel to Scotland. On March 20, 2011, I
surrendered to the Call of God to be a missionary to the Scottish people. Scotland has a population of just over 5 Million with only 4 percent attending any kind of church. That means
there are 4.8 million Scottish people who know NOTHING about Jesus. That doesn't include those who have a been led into error and need to hear a clear presentation of the Gospel.
It is our desire to take the Gospel to Scotland and start New Testament Baptist Churches. We plan to do this through door to door and one on one evangelism. Please pray for the
Hodnett family as we endeavor to reach the people that God has called us to.
We are sent out of Bible Truth Baptist Church in Griffin, GA., our Pastor is Bro. Jim
