Brother is a former Baptist preacher/evangelist who was received into full communion into the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil in 1993. The lectures of Scott Hahn on the faith and an intense study of the Bible convinced Brother that he must become Catholic. Later that year he met Scott and Kimberly Hahn who invited him to join, and did later join, a new organization that was forming at the time, the Coming Home Network.
