Can Anyone Find Christ? (Dr. Ian Murphy)

Dr. Ian Murphy

Dr. Ian Murphy has a spiritual journey that has taken him from agnostic doubts about whether or not God even exists to the pulpit as head pastor of a Baptist church, and ultimately into the Catholic Church. Graduating valedictorian of Mount Pleasant High School in 1993, Ian experienced a notable boost to his newly-developing ministry when a nationwide media blitz followed his commencement speech about Jesus. Ian’s ministry continued throughout his college years at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he graduated with a B.S. in Social History and a Minor in Ethics.  His studies also took him overseas to Northern Ireland, on a one-year study-abroad program at the University of Ulster during his undergraduate years; then later to Texas, where Ian received an M.A. in Theology from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.  It was during graduate school in Texas when Ian became the head pastor of a nearby Baptist church, and his ministry remained centered there until his decision to enter the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and become Catholic.
