Segment 3 & 4 – The Evangelical Catholic
The Evangelical Catholic is a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming lay people into zealous leaders who are excited and equipped to go out and evangelize their communities. With hundreds of small groups already in existence and over 1000 new individuals currently in training through The Evangelical Catholic, this Lent will see the greatest number yet of newly trained leaders carrying out their missional calling.

Jason Simon is the President of The Evangelical Catholic (EC). After working briefly in engineering, he began working in the Church as a parish Director of Religious Education and Youth Ministry. Through this work, he saw the power of evangelization in the Church and his passion to see more lives impacted by the Holy Spirit.
