How We Work

Alliances

Why wait? You need this NOW! Let's take your ministry further faster. Together.

Think of this as a covenant, not a contract.  We are going to do this together.  Let’s get into the trenches and figure this out.  How do we reach the lost?  Who is God calling you to go to?  How do you make disciples?

We come to you.  You come to us.  We work things out over the phone every week.  You attend webinars and trainings. We teach your leaders.  You take care of them.  We ask the tough questions and you make hard, smart choices to transform your ministry.

Everything we do is tailored to you and your staff and your people.  Soon the impossible dreams of reaching the lost on campus and in your parishes is possible.

Before you know it you are confidently doing this on your own.  That’s the plan.  We will keep after this together until we get there.

  • If you want to be formed yourself and know how to evangelize, absolutely have an Alliance with the EC. They aren’t going to just do it for you, they’re going to teach you how to do it and they’re going to make sure you know how to do it, and then they’re going to let you go do it. As a professional that’s what I want.

  • In the past I’ve tried to take part in building the Kingdom but in frustrating ways, in ways that were earnest but not terribly fruitful. Its life giving to believe that now I have an intentional and clear process, a vision that can lead to real conversion and building up of the Kingdom here at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish.

  • Our parish council has been eager to learn the principles underlying Evangelical Catholic and has begun to “dream new dreams and see new visions.”  I am grateful that Evangelical Catholic has come to St. Gabriel.

    Fr. Larry Seidl, Pastor, St. Gabriel Parish, Neenah WI
  • Through our Alliance with the Evangelical Catholic, our students have undertaken Evangelization as our primary mission. This has been a ‘dream’ that I had for years.  Now it has become a reality.

    The EC has made a major difference in our ministry, not only in evangelization, but also in deepening the commitment of our involved students and forming them into strong Catholic Christian leaders.

    Deacon Richard Papini, Director of Campus Ministry serving the University of Central Arkansas and Hendrix College
  • What an EC Alliance does is establish students and equip them as Catholic believers. Establishing students gives them the stability and depth of faith in Jesus and love for the Holy Spirit that allows me to multiply my efforts on campus.

    Since we started our EC Alliance, our students do what Jesus did, allowing us to radiate out the love of God to those who don’t know Jesus. Disciples become better husbands, better wives, better families, leading to a culture of discernment that will take care of vocations crisis.

Evangelization Training Camps

Inspire and equip your leaders at our national events.

This IS the new evangelization!

Msgr. Ketcham, former pastor,  St. John’s Newman Center at University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana

Our 5-day camps held nationwide inspire campus ministers and students, pastoral staff and parishioners, with Jesus’ love for those living without the light of the world. Participants are:

  • formed with daily experiences and habits of prayer;
  • taught evangelization skills, including leading evangelization small groups and one-on-one discipleship mentoring;
  • given a vision and a plan for evangelization within the setting of their ministry.
  • I have been looking far and wide for resources to help train parishioners to be equipped as missionary disciples. At the ETC, I saw first hand your regular, everyday parishioners who are committed to Christ become inspired and equipped to go back to their parishes, their homes, and their neighborhoods to become missionary disciples!

    Sean Ater, Director of the New Evangelization, Archdiocese of Cincinnati
  • ETC gives us the focus, the vision, the desire to reach every student on our campuses with the love of Jesus.

    Roy Lanham, Eastern Illinois University
  • I came here already on fire for Jesus and now I have the tools I need to share it.

    Mary Aubry, St. Patrick Parish, Andalusia, IL
  • This camp lit a fire for Christ in my heart. I encountered Jesus as a person, fell in love with him again… We gain a desire to share what is good. It starts in the heart, inside, then goes out to the world, to the lost and the broken.

    Justin Hurtubise, Western Washington University
  • I feel so ready both practically as well as spiritually….  I would highly recommend this camp to anyone who wants to have a heart like Jesus, who wants to be transformed by God’s word and his love for us. I really feel a deeper calling to evangelize and proclaim my faith to this world. If it were not for this camp I do not think I could have had the strength and will to see my role in bringing others to know and love Christ.  Thank you so much for your service and joy!

Associates

Energize your outreach using EC methods and materials.

EC Associate parishes, campus ministries, and dioceses attend our trainings or contract us for single visits to launch and strengthen evangelistic ministries.

“. . . anyone who has truly experienced God’s saving love does not need much time or lengthy training to go out and proclaim that love.” Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, 120

Students and parishioners are right next to those who have left the church or never been churched all the time.

At ETCs or on-site trainings, formed disciples whose hearts overflow with Christ’s love quickly learn the practical skills they need to share that love effectively.

  • Evangelical Catholic has been the impetus for a new evangelization for our parish.  The process of small group faith sharing and large group events provides the opportunity for parishioners to share their faith on an unprecedented level with each other.  I have been told by long time parishioners as well as by first time visitors that they sense a palpable spirit of excitement in living our faith.  This has attracted others to join our parish and welcomed them to take a fuller part in sharing our parish life.

    Fr. Jim Kimla, St. Joseph Parish, Wauwatosa WI
  • The relationship I have with Jesus Christ is much more alive because of this process…  As Chairman of our Parish Council, it has strengthened me to challenge our Council to make sure all we are doing is focused on bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to our parishioners and surrounding community.

    Robert Allbright, St. Joseph Parish, Wauwatosa WI
