A common question to ask someone when you first meet them is, “What do you do?” I find it hard to answer that because I get to do a lot of different things. My day job is teaching catechetics (that’s a fancy Catholic word for “passing on the faith”) at Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio. But on the weekends I’ll travel around talking about Jesus to teenagers and adults, giving workshops to catechists, or performing concerts. So that makes me a professor, a speaker, and a musician.
During the summers I lead worship for over ten thousand people at the Steubenville Summer Conferences. So add “worship leader” to the mix.
More importantly, I’m madly in love with my wife and seven adorable kids. So I’m also a husband and father.
But when I die (and die we all will) all of those titles will fade and I’ll be left with just one: a child of God.
Scripture tells us that God “loves all that He has made.” (Wisdom 11:24) That means He loves me. And that means He loves you. St. Augustine once wrote, “God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.”
So whether I’m being a faithful husband, loving father, worship leader, author, speaker, or professor, it’s all about one thing—to share the love of God using every talent I’ve been blessed with. My prayer is that something on this webpage blesses you and leads you closer to His love.
If you’d like me to come to your parish, diocese, or country to talk, sing, or teach… I’d love to! But you’ve got to get through my wife first! She handles all my booking arrangements. So send Jennie an email and she can tell you my availability, how much it costs, and any other information you might need.
