Don Smith: Former Non-denominational Pastor
Don was raised in Maine in a Catholic home on a potato farm. The family attended Mass faithfully but there was no prayer at home. In high school and college, he fell away from faith, but continued to believe in God’s existence. While he and his wife were hitchhiking down the east coast, they were witnessed to and and committed their life to Jesus Christ. After returning to Maine, he joined a Charismatic Non-denominational congregation, eventually attended a Bible College and was ordained to the ministry. After about eight years of ministry, his congregation experienced a church split. This experience caused him to question the lack of any true authority to heal devisions, planting the seeds that would eventually lead him home the the Catholic Church.
Don Smith returned to the Christian faith after a “born again” experience in young adulthood, and after time as an Evangelical pastor, returned to the Catholic faith of his youth. His resources for discipleship and faith formation are online at evangelizeme.com.
