Cory Shay - Conversion StoryHere is the story of my conversion.It was my senior year of college, 1998-1999, and I was really struggling spiritually. I had been a Protestant, but what the Protestants taught and practice was not really sitting well with me. Plus, there was some issues in my old church, and I sought God on my own. My Senior year in college I realized, there was only so much I could do. I knew I needed to find a church again. However, I did not care to go back to Protestant Churches (since I left my old church, I went to others, and just the things I saw and heard left me scratching my head. for example, I was at a church and the sermon was on what colors to paint the walls).
