"Go and Make Disciples"

Burning Hearts Disciples equips, trains, and supports Catholics across the country to live out the mission of the Church to "go and make disciples" (Mt. 28:19).

You are invited to better understand and implement the call to New Evangelization - to re-propose the person of Christ to the people in your family, in your community, and in your parish. Burning Hearts draws on the best church, business, and education resources, to customize individual faith growth plans or parish/diocesan disicpleship plans that inspire you to be Disciples of Christ.

  • "Practical and hands-on training"

    I loved all the hands on ideas that I can use right away. Rather than just focusing on why this is important, we learned actual examples of things we can do.  I'm going to use some of these right away and it's really going to add to my classes!

  • "Hit it out of the park!"

    Kristin was a pleasure to work with from the early planning stages of our pre-ordination retreat for the permanent diaconate, to the last day of the conference.

    Burning Hearts Disciples, under her direction as Executive Director, was able to meet every goal we were trying to attain for the men and their wives that attended our five day retreat.

    Even though I had previous opportunities for conferences utilizing Intentional Disciples; she was able to bring a personal side to our understanding of what a Personal Relationship with God entails. She was able to challenge our deacon candidates and wives to break out of their comfort zones and assist them to be able to lead when they become deacons in their own parishes.

    Across the board we received positive feedback from all who attended. Many expressed how much they enjoyed the message, the humor and the way she presented. I can't say enough about the abilities, direction, and thoughts that were pulled together by Kristin for our retreat. You not only hit a homerun; you hit it out of the park!

  • "The wealth of information will benefit my ministry."

    I was worried that this was going to be similar to the many “classes” we had already been through - many of which felt like passive reception of content. That was definitely not the case. The wealth of info you gave us - especially the exposure to so many different resources - will be beneficial to me in my ministry. You encouraged me to open up myself and be a little vulnerable - something you modeled so well.

  • "I can better serve my parish now."

    This retreat helped me see parish life through a different filter. Those of us who work in ministry think we have dynamic parishes, but so much of what we do is ineffective, dead or dying. I received so much more on how to better serve my parish than I could have ever imagined.

  • "Both practical and spiritual"

    This was both practical and spiritual.  It has helped give me concrete language to pinpoint who God is for me, and most importantly begin to unpack why.  I only got about halfway through the reflection handout, but I'm looking forward to going through the rest at home!

The Five Love Languages

five ll

We all express and feel love differently, and understanding those differences can seriously help our relationships. Being aware of your love language, as well as the love language of the people around you, can improve your relationships with a boyfriend/girlfriend, your co-workers, your parents and siblings, and so many more. Kristin Bird will explain how The Five Love Languages can help foster healthy relationships by recognizing your own needs as well us uncovering how to better meet the needs of the other people in your life.

This talk is a great entry point for audiences who are not explicitly religious or are on the fence.  We touch on elements of faith without being explicitly religious.  It is particularly fruitful for those who are in early thresholds of conversion.

  • "The most informative, formational, and nourishing event hosted by the Archdiocese."

    I felt the topic was very timely as we search for new understandings and the HOW of applying evangelization skills to our ministry.  It was the most informative, formational, and nourishing event I have been to hosted by the Arch[diocese] so far.  I plan to implement this immediately by focusing more on providing encounters with Jesus, not just providing programs, and spending more time and effort accompanying individuals in my parish, especially my youth.

  • "The Holy Spirit sent this experience for me."

    As this year has been a struggle for me in my new assignment, I feel as if Holy Spirit sent Kristin FOR ME! There was so much that she articulated that was on my heart but I did not know how to put it into words or action. My time last week left me with 11 different statements that I am posting next to my desk as I make may plans for the young people in my parish next year.

  • "You encouraged me to pursue my own healing"

    I’ve been thinking about the witness on your family you shared at the Discipleship Formation Seminar I and I am so thankful that you did. It struck me so profoundly and beautifully, that I am still thinking about it. Your courage and the way you were able to simply be honest really resonated with me and my own family, so thank you. Thank you for being willing to share it because it encouraged me to pursue my own healing. It still has a long way to go, but it’s on its way.

  • Thank you!

    My catechists and I really enjoyed your talk on discipleship and catechesis. I think many really did have a few “take-aways” they will be incorporating into their lives and those children and youth they serve.
