Man up! Preparation for Mission

Too often today Catholics and Christians are considered wimps or unmanly, but after thorough
study and reading I find the opposite to be true. Modern ideals of masculinity are more than just
misunderstood and the Catholic Faith has the answers to bring back men of honor and backbone!
With examples from his own life and conversion, Jared gives an entertaining and inspiring
presentation for men to be who they truly are: masculine men of God.

Being an Obedient Son of the Church

Too often we allow our own pride get in the way of truly believing what the Church teaches. The
beauty of our Faith is that we can completely surrender and be assured of authentic truth, not
only in our belief system but in every aspect of our life. Through his own relationship with a
great father, Jared offers the pillars and similarities of the father-son relationship and correlates
those with the son-ship of the Holy Catholic Church.

Catholic Self-Improvement

We are all called to be saints. Not just mediocre, but the greatest saints in the history of the
Catholic Faith! Too often we let our lives get in the way of pushing ourselves. In this short but
evergreen presentation Jared presents ten simple ways to make the most out of your time in the
mission of the Church.
