Who We Serve


Relational ministry is changing the way pastors, staff and parishioners envision the goals of Church life.

Let’s be honest.  Many parishes are struggling to be relevant in today’s world.  We turn the tide by working through your specific parish barriers to develop a compelling plan that communicates the heart of the Father. From Philadelphia to Oklahoma City, to San Diego, we are the boots on the ground to inspire, train, and support you in launching your movement.

The EC partners with 100 parishes around the country bringing the Good News to nearly 1400 people in parishioner-led evangelization small groups.


Immersive coaching and person-to-person evangelization are transforming college campus ministry nationwide.

The EC partners with 63 campuses around the country bringing the Good News to nearly 2000 people in student-led evangelization small groups.

  • The stories I’m hearing from students, the ways that they’re reaching out to people has been amazing. God is placing people in these students’ lives and they’re responding…. Daily mass is full, it’s full every single day. We have men just clamoring down the door. This never happens. This doesn’t happen in ministry!

    Emily Klaus, Campus Minister, St. Thomas Aquinas Student Center at ISU
  • When the EC comes to visit the campus, they bring energy, they bring leadership, they bring direction…. [Before EC} we were almost trying to pull people into small groups; this year we needed more small group leaders!

    David Drendel, student, Iowa State University
  • I love the EC. It’s a prayer come true. They focus on Christ, that is what, for me, the EC brings. You don’t lean on the EC but you learn to do it and then you teach others to do it too. Everywhere I go from here, the EC will be there.

    Fr. Richmond Dzekoe, Associate Pastor, St. Thomas Aquinas Parish and Student Center
  • I came here 24 years ago so I’ve seen a whole generation go through… Back then we were trying to keep cultural Catholics, cultural Catholics. Today young people are much more intentional about their religious commitment.

    The EC has been a big part of us shifting from the maintenance model to the mission model of the parish and that makes a big difference.

    Fr. Jon Seda, Pastor, St. Thomas Aquinas Parish and Student Center
  • Before we started working with EC, evangelization was a word I was completely uncomfortable with. It brought up images of in my face, Bible-thumping Protestants… The EC model…. turned evangelization from a “them versus us” atmosphere. I was ready then because it wasn’t just about converting the masses, but converting our own hearts.

    We went from having one small group three years ago, to having twenty this past year – in less than two years we grew that much!

    Shari Riley, Director of Campus Ministry, St. Thomas Aquinas Student Center at ISU


Diocesan leadership equipped as evangelization experts change the status quo. They have the skills and knowledge to train entire diocesan staff and lay leaders for mission. This is the boldest way to start the movement!

We teach you evangelization strategy and skills that draw upon and translate the patrimony of the Church into proven real-world applications for your entire diocese.  Click on the video below to see how we helped transform the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

“The formation of the lay faithful must be placed among the priorities of a diocese.”  Pope St. John Paul II, Christifideles Laici, 58.

The EC partners with dioceses around the country bringing the Good News to people through parishioner-led evangelization small groups and one-on-one apprenticing relationships.

  • I chose to invest in a partner relationship with the EC because they will mentor me and give me the skills and the methods to equip Missionary Disciples for years to come.

    Sean Ater, Director of the Office of the New Evangelization, Archdiocese of Cincinnati
  • Not only does the EC have a solid theological understanding of the evangelization process given to us by the Church, they also have years and years of practical experience that has borne fruit in the lives of countless individuals….  The goal of the EC is not to become entrenched in a diocese but to empower the diocese to train others in the method of evangelization given to us by the Church.

    Sean Ater, Director of the Office of the New Evangelization, Archdiocese of Cincinnati
  • Our culture and our world is in a flood of lies…. Unless there is a massive cultural shift brothers and sisters, this is going to get worse. The only thing that can change it if more of us Christians, and Catholics especially, become authentic disciples….

    I would like to applaud our Cathedral Parish for working at intentional discipleship through evangelism programs that help us to disciple one another. The Evangelical Catholic program is one of them where we can sit at the feet of Jesus together… to have that living and loving relationship with Jesus Christ that is so central to being a good Christian, a good Catholic.… We must be in a living loving relationship with Jesus Christ to know that he is alive, to know that he is real, and to be in daily communication with him.

    Bishop Ricken, Diocese of Green Bay, Sermon in Lent 2013
