A Pentecostal Missionary Kid Becomes a Catholic Priest – Fr. Scott Borgman

May 1, 2020 No Comments

Fr. Scott Borgman grew up in West Africa as the son of Pentecostal missionaries who made it a point to teach him the importance of Scripture and a relationship with God. But when he was old enough for college, he decided to take a break from God, pursuing a film production career in Hollywood.

It wasn’t long after that Fr. Scott got a shocking call from his parents, informing him that they were becoming Catholic! He realized they had risked their friendships, finances, and careers as lifelong Pentecostal missionaries to enter the Catholic Church, so he knew they hadn’t taken the decision lightly. This caused Fr. Scott to rethink not only his theology, but also what God was calling him to do with his life.
