J.G. Whitley was raised in such a way that, he can’t remember a time not knowing that God is Holy, man is sinful, & only true repentance & genuine faith in Jesus Christ brings reconciliation. But having knowledge of the Gospel one’s whole life, is not enough to change a heart; only God can grant salvation. JG’s life is a testimony to that. The sinful desires & deceitfulness of his own heart led him into a life of rebellion, & by age 17, JG was immersed in the streets & a criminal lifestyle of selling guns & drugs & robberies, which all resulted in numerous arrests & jail time.
In early 2004, shortly after the birth of his son, God granted JG eyes to see himself as desperately sinful, & Jesus as infinitely Righteous. By God’s Grace, JG experienced true repentance & brokenness. Since then, he has been growing in grace & maturity by the power of the Gospel. He went on to receive a degree in Studio Recording & Audio Engineering, & is currently working towards attending Seminary training facilitated by his local Body, Grace Bible Church, where he’s able to serve & grow.
Southwest native, born in Cali, but he grew up in the Phoenix area. He now lives in Chandler, AZ with his beautiful wife Lena & their son DJ.
