Vaughn Kohler: Former Independent Baptist

February 4, 2013 No Comments

Marcus welcomes Vaughn Kohler, a former evangelical protestant, to the program.  Vaughn’s earliest memories are living in South Bend, IN in a family secure in its protestant faith amidst a culture of Catholicism.  He shares the story of his journey through Wheaton College and several protestant seminaries to becoming a youth pastor in the Southern Baptist tradition.  But through it all, Vaughn experiences “Catholic moments” which continue him to lead him into further study/reflection about his beliefs.  Ultimately it is the issue of authority and biblical interpretation that culminates in his conversion.
