Is Justin Gaston religious?
Justin Gaston identifies as a Christian. He grew up in a Christian home, was baptized at eight years old and got serious about his faith as a teenager. He said, “When I was a teenager, I went to a church camp and met God there. I had a genuine encounter. I can remember being in high school, and I would just sit there in school and read my Bible all day long. I don’t even know what they were teaching me.”
Faith is also something that Gaston and his wife hope to instill in their daughters. He said, “They’ve taught me so much about God and His love for me. Through them, I understand that love more as a father. I love them more than anything in the world, and I would do anything for them.”
