Segment 3 – Archdiocese’s new evangelization director brings an educator’s heart to ministry

Marlon De La Torre, Ph.D., is a big believer in the connection between education and Christian witness. Specifically, he says, one can’t proclaim the Gospel if they don’t know what the Gospel says. “If you are an effective teacher, that means you’re an effective witness of the Gospel,” De La Torre told Detroit Catholic. “You can’t be strictly an evangelist and not be able to articulate the faith in some way.”

Dr. Marlon De La Torre, who has decades of experience working in evangelization and education, including 10 years as director of evangelization and missionary discipleship for the Diocese of Fort Worth, Texas, was named the Archdiocese of Detroit’s new director of evangelization and missionary discipleship effective Sept. 7.
