PISCATAWAY – The Diocese of Metuchen will host a Bible conference, “The Gospel of John: Gateway to Conversion” on March 10, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the St. John Neumann Pastoral Center, 146 Metlars Lane.
Led by leading Catholic evangelist and author Steve Ray, the conference will focus on the beauty and power of the Gospel of John, revealing the pathway to a conversion of heart and examining how John’s encounter with Jesus influenced the way he wrote his Gospel.
Previously a devout evangelical Protestant, Ray converted to Catholicism in the mid-1990s. He will share how John’s Gospel influenced his own personal conversion experience and reveal how it can help lead others to a deeper conversion to Christ as well.
Ray leads pilgrimages to the Holy Land and has authored a number of books including, “Crossing the Tiber: Evangelical Protestant Discovers the Historical Church.” He hosts a website called “Defenders of the Catholic Faith” at www.catholic-convert.com, which was recently listed as one of the “Ten must-see web resources for Catholics” by Our Sunday Visitor.
He also is a regular guest on the call-in radio program Catholic Answers Live and on EWTN’s live show, The Journey Home.
Sponsored by the diocesan Office of Evangelization, the Bible conference is open to everyone, but strongly recommended as a resource and formation experience for all Catholic Bible study leaders and facilitators. The day will begin with Mass at 9:00 a.m.
The event fee is $35 per person, which includes a continental breakfast and lunch. A discounted admission fee of $25 is offered to those who register by Feb. 17.
