Jay Haizlip: On His Way to Buy Drugs When He Found Jesus

By Lauren Zupkus

Pastor Jay Haizlip was only 15 when he became addicted to cocaine. Due to his drug addiction, he lost some of his most treasured possessions: skateboard memorabilia, childhood photos, and even a 1958 Coupe Deville Cadillac. In and out of rehab with no end in sight, Haizlip hit rock bottom when he contemplated ending his life. He was on his way to buy drugs when he met someone who asked him to pray to Jesus. Haizlip asked Jesus to forgive him for his sins, and he experienced a spiritual awakening to devote his life to God from that point on. Watch Jay Haizlip speak about his transformation in this intimate interview.

Stay tuned for the premiere of Preachers of L.A., airing Wednesday, October 9 at 10/9c.
