I've had the blessed opportunity of collaborating with my friend Bob Lesnefsky, aka "Righteous B", for almost 15 years now. We first met while he was helping with the Steubenville Youth Conferences. He became a youth minister in a neighboring parish to where I was doing youth ministry and we often ran combined retreats and events. [...]

I'm excited to say we've come to the end of another year of videos in the VCAT series. Last year we had twelve videos on the creed, this year twelve on the sacraments. We're half way there! As I travel around the country, it's great to hear how many people are using these in ministry. [...]

I always struggle to find words to express that experience: awesome, life-changing, unforgettable. Even though the theme and [...]

It was the summer of 1994 when I first set foot on campus at Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio. I had been hired to speak at a Steubenville Youth Conference, something I hadn't even heard of until a few months before. At that time I had been playing concerts and working at an improv comedy [...]
