Download Biography

From working in youth ministry to traveling the world, Michael Gormley, or “Gomer” as he’s been known since high school, has been preaching the gospel to pew-sitting and lapsed Catholics alike. “Nothing prepares a soul for evangelization more than running a high school Confirmation retreat.  The students don’t want to be there. You’ve stolen their weekend. And you have till Sunday to win them over.”

Gomer holds three degrees from the Franciscan University of Steubenville: Philosophy B.A., Theology B.A., and Theology and Christian Ministry M.A. He combines this formal training with years of experience in parish and youth ministry to offer evangelization training that is both theological and practical.

Traveling widely to give retreats, parish missions, youth conferences, and evangelization training all around the country, Gomer’s main concern is building community and bringing Catholics into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through repentance and encountering God in Scripture.

Gomer and his wife, Shannon, live with their children in Houston, Texas, where he serves as the Coordinator of Evangelization at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in The Woodlands.
