Envangelization:  Our Mission, Motive, Message, and Method Also, Hector Molina en espanol

The Catholic Church exists in order to evangelize, yet sadly there are a great many Catholics who fail to recognize their sacred duty to live out and share their faith in with others. In this tour de force presentation, Hector effectively outlines a compelling and thoroughly Catholic theology of evangelization that will both challenge and inspire participants to embrace their role as protagonists in the New Evangelization.


Hector Molina, known as “The Motivangelist”, inspires and motivates others to know, live, and share their faith with passion and purpose.  He has been professionally writing and speaking about issues related to Catholicism, evangelization, apologetics, spirituality, and personal development for over 20 years.  A former apologist, he is a speaker for Catholic Answers, the largest lay-run apostolate of apologetics and evangelization in North America.  Hector began his ministerial career in his  home Diocese of Brooklyn (NY), where he served as a lay pastoral associate at St. John the Baptist Parish in Bedford-Stuyvesant for over a decade before relocating to the Archdiocese of St. Louis.  There he served for six years as the Director of Hispanic Ministry and later as founding Director of The Office for the New Evangelization.  In 2009, he launched his own full-time speaking apostolate through which he ministered to tens of thousands at  Catholic events throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, Southeast Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean.  In 2012, he joined the staff of Catholic Answers.  Married to his lovely wife Uki for over 10 years, he is the father of five beautiful children and makes his home in The Rome of the West, St. Louis, Missouri.
