Jennifer Kern – Former Presbyterian (PCA) and Nondenominational
Jennifer Kern grew up a dyed-in-the-wool Calvinist. She even considered carrying tulips down the aisle at her wedding in honor of John Calvin’s 5 point T.U.L.I.P. doctrine! Her husband felt called to ministry, and began taking classes at a Reformed seminary. One night, while watching a Catholic family on a sitcom, Jenni did an online search to see if what she was watching was a caricature of Catholicism, and came across Catholic Answers. Meanwhile, her husband was studying Church history, and beginning to question the fruits of the Reformation. They connected with a nearby Ordinariate priest, and ended up entering the Catholic Church on Divine Mercy Sunday during the Jubilee Year of Mercy.
Jenni mentions how helpful a Coming Home Network retreat was for her as a recent convert – you can find more about these retreats at chnetwork.org/retreats.
