Jay, a native of Montgomery, meet and fell in love with Katherine while they attended Samford University. After they married and moved to California for Katherine to pursue her modeling and acting career and Jay to attend law school, their happily ever after life was turned upside down.
In April 2008, 26-year-old Katherine Wolf suffered a massive brain stem stroke while six-month-old James slept. Not expected to live or recover, she instead relearned to eat,speak and walk. Today, she and husband Jay celebrate each day’s beauty and pain as gifts from a God of love and redemption and hope. Together they share their story through the full-time ministry of Hope Heals, and how you and your
family can experience the true, healing hope in Jesus Christ— and live a life you never thought possible.

Previous Connecting Hearts have included special guests Michael Oher and Jay & Angie Jacobs.
- Michael Oher, NFL football player, has overcome challenges from homelessness, foster care, and adoption, which are similar to what children Agape of Central Alabama serve also face. Due to his dynamic story, he has been an inspiration to so many. Agape’s inaugural Connecting Hearts event was a HUGE success with more than 1200 tickets sold. Michael Oher’s message of challenge and perseverance were a true inspiration to every person who attended. Agape is still receiving notes from some of the children and parents saying what a difference Michael’s words have made in their life
- Jay Jacobs is the Athletic Director at Auburn University. Jay and Angie have three daughters, Haley, Meagan and Jayne. They have been a foster family in recent years, advocating for foster children, adoption and ending child hunger. They were a delight to hear speak as they shared their heart for children and families in our own communities.
Your support of this event will impact children and teens, throughout Central Alabama. Agape of Central Alabama is a ministry that helps children by connecting hearts through adoption and foster care. There are so many children in our area that need a loving home, and Agape sets out to match children with permanent homes with nurturing Christian families.
