From Christian Upbringing to Islamic Conversion: The Story of Yusha Evans
Yusha Evans, a full-time lecturer and caller to Islam, was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina, in a very conservative Christian home. His early teens saw him heavily involved in the church near his home and in Young Life, a non-denominational youth-oriented organization, with the intention of becoming involved in the ministry of teaching and preaching. Upon graduating high school, he had planned to enroll in Bob Jones University, a world-renowned Bible College in his hometown, but in the summer of 1996, his life took an unexpected turn.
After studying the Bible from cover to cover and realizing that many things were askew, and much of what he had believed his entire life was not in line with what his research found, Yusha left Christianity and went in search of the truth. He delved into the many world religions in his quest for tangible proof of the right way of life. This journey led him to encounter a Muslim, who gave him a Qur’an. After reading the Qur’an cover to cover, he accepted Islam in the winter of 1998.
