Kurt Hoover: Former Wesleyan Methodist
Kurt grew up in a very devout Wesleyan Methodist home. His grandfather was a minister in that denomination. At the age of 16, with the assistance of several men in his congregation, he made a deep commitment to a life of faith in Jesus Christ and was baptized. As a young man, through his experience of Christians who were not giving of their wealth or their time, he became angry and despondent and stopped attending church. During this time he met a Catholic girl who was rediscovering and recommitting herself to the faith. Through her witness, Kurt was introduced to a new depth of Christianity that he had never before imagined. This was the beginning of a journey that would lead him Home the holy Catholic Church.
