Meet our Emcees

Chris Stefanick has devoted his life to inspiring people to live a bold, contagious faith. A tremendously successful evangelist, Chris engages the disengaged like few others have been able. His charism for reaching people most consider unreachable has been tried, tested and proven. There is something unique in Chris’ approach to say what is authentically true in a way that reaches people where they’re at, and that becomes the germ of curiosity – the seed of faith – for his listeners. He forms his listeners.
Chris is an internationally acclaimed speaker and author, whose seminars, videos, radio spots, syndicated columns, and books reach over a million people every year. He is also the founder of Real Life Catholic, a Denver-based non-profit whose mission is what you read above.

Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, OFM Cap calls Chris, “one of the most engaging young defenders of the Christian faith on the scene today.”

Above all, Chris is proud to be the husband to his wife Natalie and father to their six children.

Sr. Miriam enjoys science, but when she isn’t in the science laboratory guiding her chemistry students through experiments, you know she’s probably up to something in campus ministry.  For the past four years she has been in San Francisco, where she has had the pleasure of directing Marin Catholic High School’s liturgy choir, guiding retreats at all class levels, preparing students for sacraments, and facilitating controlled explosions in her sophomore chemistry class.  Before entering the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, Sr. Miriam spent several years traveling and leading youth retreats with Face to Face Ministries, acting as backup vocalist and instrumentalist for the ministry’s worship band.  While doing retreat work, she earned a bachelor of science in pharmacy, but soon after discerned a vocation to the religious life, and entered the Ann Arbor based community of Dominican Sisters in 2006.
