Jason Hall: Former Free Will Baptist

December 10, 2012 No Comments

Jason Hall, native of Owensboro, KY, grew up in a Christian home in the Free Will Baptist tradition.  His father was the minister of his church. Jason had an active role in the church as a youth which continued through college.  He was an avid reader, particularly of other faith traditions, so that he could be well versed in debates.  Following law school, Jason returned to his home town to work and attend church.  While teaching young adults about the faith, he began reading some Catholic materials, including the Catechism of the Church.  Jason shares that delving deeper into Catholic theology and moving to Frankfurt, KY led him to continued reflection on his faith.  Ultimately, it was his understanding (intellectually) and accepting (in his heart) the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist, that would lead to his conversion.
