Topic: Road to the Ministry

Guests: Fr. George Hill

Many of us have followed a different road to Orthodoxy; some were born it, others have married into the Orthodox Christian faith, while others have truly sought to find the true faith that they have found in Orthodoxy. Fr. Chris and Emmy welcome Fr. George Hill, a son of Baptist Minister, an American Soldier and an Orthodox Priest who traveled a long way to get where he is at today. Fr. George will share with us his experience and journey to Orthodoxy, where he then followed the road to the priesthood in the Orthodox Church.
