Meet Gary


Hi I’m Gary. Thank you for visiting my site.  It’s so nice to meet you. I’d shake your hand, but I don’t want to break your screen.

 So, you would like to learn a bit more about me? Well, I’m a dedicated Catholic man with three great loves in my life: God, my family, and young people. I have a beautiful wife and two incredible children who amaze me every day. I’ve been privileged to be a Catholic youth speaker and Catholic youth retreat leader for the past 15 years, speaking to youth, young adults, and parents at Catholic youth conferences, Catholic youth missions, and Catholic youth rallies all throughout the country. Last but not least, I’ve been surprised by God. He has challenged, inspired, and loved me more than I thought was humanly possible. I guess though that is what makes Him God, He goes beyond the human into the divine and calls us to do the same as we lose ourselves in Him.

My mission in life is simple:

 “To make Christ real and present to everyone I meet through giving an authentic witness to the Gospel.”

I strive to accomplish my mission by allowing the Holy Spirit to work within me in any way He sees fit. I make every effort to encourage others through sharing prayer, experience, and wisdom. I continually seek out opportunities to laugh in community, listen with the intent of understanding, and respond to the needs of others by doing whatever love requires.

I hope that I have the opportunity to meet you in person soon so I can learn more about you. If there is something that I might be able to do for your community, youth group, parish, school, or diocese please visit our Contact page.
