Peter Herbeck is the vice president and director of missions for Renewal Ministries.

J.T. Olson: After being orphaned as a child alongside his four siblings, JT Olson went on to start Both Hands -- a faith-based non-profit serving orphans and widows. Olson’s personal tragedy gave him an overwhelming understanding of the need to find loving homes for the world’s orphaned and vulnerable children. His new book follows his powerful journey towards spiritual restoration by recounting significant moments in his life, including his family’s life-altering decision to adopt a little girl from China. With over 153 million orphans worldwide and the costs of adoption on the rise, his non-profit’s goal is to fulfill the call in James 1:27 to care for orphans and widows by alleviating the financial burden facing families considering adoption. 

JT is a sensational speaker and an avid proponent of adoption, the pro-life movement and orphan care. He has given talks on God’s transformation of his pain into passion, the sanctity of life, growing a healthy marriage, encouraging dreamers and entrepreneurs to pursue their calling, and coaching leaders on building a stronger organization. Learn more about having JT speak to your group.

JT and his wife Sara have been married for over 30 years and have five children (four bio and one chosen): Jeff, Daley, Nick, Max & Grace. They now reside in Brentwood, TN, just south of Nashville.

 

Fr. Shenan Boquet travels around the world spreading the Gospel of Life as President of Human Life International (HLI). He was ordained in 1993 and is a priest of the Houma-Thibodaux Roman Catholic Diocese in Louisiana, his home state, where he served before joining HLI in August 2011. 

Having journeyed over a million miles to more than 87 countries, Father Boquet collaborates with Vatican officials, (arch)bishops and Church leaders. He educates and mentors priests, seminarians, and religious men and women, offers guidance to civil leaders, and speaks at numerous international conferences. All of his work spreads the Catholic Church’s teaching on Life and Family as part of HLI’s global mission to build a Culture of Life. Father Boquet has given numerous talks at conferences and symposia in the United States and around the world on issues ranging from the dignity of the human person and the nature of marriage to social justice and moral theology. 

A frequent guest on various media programs, Father has appeared on EWTN television and radio shows, Catholic Answers Live, Ave Maria Radio, Vatican Radio, as well as a number of local Catholic radio programs in the U.S. and in other international media outlets. His writings have appeared in numerous publications such as: LifeSiteNews, LifeNews, Catholic Exchange, CNSNews, Catholic Lane, Catholic Online, Crux, Legatus, and The Wanderer. Father Boquet’s weekly newsletter, “Spirit and Life,” goes online Mondays at ww.HLI.org. 

Father Boquet was raised in the small town of Bourg, Louisiana, in a devoutly Catholic family and community, who provided his initial formation in Christ. His earliest and most influential examples were his parents, grandparents, godmother and parish priests, all of whom instilled in him at a young age a love for Christ and His Church, and an active faith that was to be lived, and not merely held. He was very active as a youth in service projects with Catholic Charities and other groups that ministered to families, the elderly, the sick, the poor, and the marginalized. This active faith grew naturally into a vocation to the priesthood. Father Boquet has been persecuted at times for preaching the Church’s teaching on the Gospel of Life, but in spite of these difficulties, he has remained steadfast and dedicated to authentic Catholic teaching and advocacy. 

 

Deacon Ralph Poyo is the founder of New Evangelization Ministries, an apostolate committed to assisting dioceses, churches and individuals with services, resources and training in effective evangelization. Prior to launching NEM, Dcn. Ralph served in three different parishes as a Youth Minister and Director of Faith Formation for twenty-three years. He is passionate about sharing the truth of the Gospel in a way that captivates audiences of all ages. He is married to his high school sweetheart, Susan, and they have five grown daughters and four grandchildren.

 

 

The Vigil Project is a Catholic nonprofit music organization and touring band. What began as a music collective in 2016 has elevated into a full ministry with a mission of making music for the Catholic journey. The Vigil Project collaborates with musicians around the world to make and release music for every moment and season of the Catholic journey, while bringing live events to parishes and conferences. They also work heavily with other Catholic musicians to provide resources and formation to elevate musicians and artists within the Catholic Church.
