In Your Parish, Diocese, and School
"The parish in and through all of its activities, should animate its members to become agents of the New Evangelization, witnessing through both their words and their lives" (XIII Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops)
Parishes, dioceses and Catholic schools across the United States are seeking to understand and implement the call to New Evangelization - to re-propose the person of Christ to their people.
We build relationships with parishes, dioceses, and schools who are ready to take the next step toward creating a culture of intentional discipleship. By accompanying your group, we provide encouragement and accountability, help uncover resources, and facilitate discussions that foster a culture of discipleship at your parish.
We are committed to walking with you, your staff, your leaders, and your entire community as we seek to know Jesus and His Church together. The work of evangelization is, above all, relational. To walk with you on your communitiy's journey of discipleship, whether for a single retreat or event or for long term strategic planning, is the heart of our mission.
One Size Does NOT Fit All
There are hundreds of programs and ministries today that claim to be ‘the way’ to live the Church’s call to New Evangelization. In reality, there is no single program, book, DVD series, or process that will fit your community’s specific charisms and culture.
It is through the art of accompaniment - walking with people, meeting them where they are at and sharing in their joys and sorrows and steadily witnessing to the power of Jesus Christ in our own lives - that we can work together to not only make disciples of Jesus, but also become more fully His disciples ourselves.
You don't have to do it alone!
"Burning Hearts Disciples has helped me and my leadership team develop and communicate our vision of discipleship in the Diocese of Biloxi. They met us where we were and walked alongside our team developing a process to move from maintenance to a purpose of mission. They continue to walk with us as we work to move our clergy, Religious, parishioners, students, families, and staff to be disciples and form missionary disciples of Christ. "
Bishop Louis Kihneman, III, Diocese of Biloxi
"Thank you for your leadership throughout the Diocese of Green Bay. I continue to hear very positive feedback about your presentations and teaching througout the diocese. You have been such a huge part of cultural change at the Diocese and a great formator of our parish leaders with the Discipleship Seminars. For you I am very grateful."
Bishop David Ricken, Diocese of Green Bay
"Burning Hearts Disciples has been able to meet every goal for our diaconate formation retreats. You 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."
Deacon Jim Kincel, Diaconate Formation, Diocese of Lafayette
We were blessed to have Burning Hearts Disciples walk with us as we have journeyed towards intentional discipleship on a personal & parish level for two years. Your accompaniment has been invaluable to us as we journey towards intentional discipleship. Thank you for your inspired support and spirit-filled accompaniment.

When I was told I had to participate in this ongoing formation for discipleship, I was annoyed and didn't want to come. The first class was awesome, and by the end of each gathering, I couldn't wait for the next session. I feel very blessed to have shared this time of learning with you!
