Christian Singer Announces Conversion To Atheism


The lead singer for the Christian band “Hawk Nelson,”Jon Steingard, has announced that he has lost his faith and is now an atheist.

Fans of the band were stunned by the announcement, which Steingard revealed in a post on Instagram. As Fox News reports:

The lead singer of a Christian rock band and the son of a pastor announced on Instagram that he no longer believes in God.

“I’ve been terrified to post this for a while– but it feels like it’s time for me to be honest,” Jon Steingard, the frontman for the band Hawk Nelson, wrote in the caption of a lengthy note on May 20.

“After growing up in a Christian home, being a pastor’s kid, playing and singing in a Christian band, and having the word ‘Christian’ in front of most of the things in my life — I am now finding that I no longer believe in God,” he said.


After Steingard switched from guitarist to lead vocalist in 2012, the band, formed in 2000 from Peterborough, Ontario, shifted from fast-paced punk rock to more contemporary Christian music with songs like “Drops in the Ocean,” which he said he can “no longer sing” in good conscience.
