Seahawks Quarterback: I Became a Christian After Jesus Visited Me in a Dream (+videos)

Russell Wilson, a native of Richmond, Va., who quarterbacks for the Seattle Seahawks, explained in a recent video about his religious background and spiritual decision.

“When I was a young kid, I used to always go to church. My parents used to always take me. I knew about God, but I was always playing sports. I was kind of a bad kid growing up,” said Wilson.

“I had a dream that my dad passed away and that Jesus came into the room and he was basically knocking on my door saying, ‘hey you need to find out more about me.’ So that Sunday morning I end up going to church and that’s when I got saved.”

Wilson added that about six years after he had the dream and made his spiritual decision to follow Christ, his father died. (Read more about what the Seahawks quarterback said HERE)
