Beginning before Jr. High, Thomas (TJ) Anslinger’s life began spinning out of control. Drug use, alcohol consumption, pornography, self-harm (aka – cutting), suicide attempt, and self-proclaimed atheist are some words that defined TJ’s youth.
TJ is the profile that many Christians might cast aside and label “unreachable.”
God knew different!
Through the leading of the Holy Spirit as well as the love and acceptance provided through a local church youth group, TG radically changed to a young man saved by grace and believes that no person is unreachable.
Thomas (TJ) Anslinger is the youth pastor at Cross Point Church in St. Louis, MO. TJ’s passion is sharing the grace of God with other youth so they don’t have to walk the same path he once walked.
