My name is Steve, and I have been involved in Catholic evangelistic ministry since 1998.  I currently work for the National Evangelization Teams in West St. Paul, MN, and I've had the opportunity to be in contact with thousands of people across the country in a variety of contexts; yet the most significant encounter I had was when I was alone on a personal retreat in the summer of 2008 that changed the direction of my life.  I was pursuing the dream ... not just dreaming about it ... and that summer, it all shattered, and the only thing that I could do was watch it crumble, along with my hope of having a meaningful life.  Little did I know that God had a plan for me which was way better than the one that I drew up for myself!  Since 2008, after 10 years in ministry, I finally found my niche: to tell other people that a personal experience of God's Mercy is the entry point into a personal relationship with Him that can set you free from whatever holds you bound. 


Next week we've got Will Hickl doing the 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time - February 7, 2016 (PS 138:1-2, 2-3, 4-5, 7-8)
