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.
