Jason Simon: Former Evangelical
October 24, 2011
Jason Simon speaks of a faith-filled childhood in which he publicly declared his commitment to Jesus Christ within the Assemblies of God tradition at the age of five. His faith was a big part of his life for the next ten years. But in high school, as Jason began seeking more excitement and fun in his life, that commitment waned. A relationship with a Catholic girl eventually reached an impasse because of theological differences. And yet, the Holy Spirit continued to work in his heart. Jason got involved in campus ministry in college where his heart was softened. A series of experiences deeply affected Jason which brought him, once again, into relationship with his former girlfriend. This time, Christ was at the center of their lives and making disciples their joint purpose. Now married Catholics, the Simons are involved in the apostolate, Evangelical Catholic.
