Michael “Gomer” Gormley has spent 20 years evangelizing and discipling men and women, teens and young adults, in the Catholic faith.
He spent 17 years in full-time parish ministry, while also running LayEvangelist.com, his apostolate of evangelization for the last 12 years. He is also a successful podcaster and frequent guest on Catholic podcasts and radio shows.
Michael Gormley is a diversified speaker and ready to work with you to customize the content to meet the needs of your group. Below are just a few examples of the types of events he does.
Parish Missions are built around proclaiming the gospel from the heart of the Church and how to have a personal relationship with Christ. Parish missions are also opportunities for Staff Retreats and Leadership Workshops. Michael does not charge per talk, but only for his time away from his family, so you can add additional talks while he is with you at no extra charge. This mission in either the two- or three- day version, has changed lives and brought souls back into the sacramental life of the Church.
Men’s conferences at the parish, regional, and diocesan level are happening more frequently. Pastors of souls are realizing just how much our culture has demeaned or abandoned men and how distorted masculinity is today. There are no predetermined conference topics. We wish to partner with you on content because you know what message your people need to hear. Contact Michael and start the conversation for your group or event. Common topics from past events are: Men’s role in the parish, in the family; prayer and sacrifice; virtuous living.
This is an incredible opportunity if you desire to spread TMIY throughout your region. Michael can speak on a variety of topics and also passionately encourage the men to ongoing faith formation and fellowship via TMIY at the parish level. Men’s conferences are a proven vehicle to grow TMIY locally. TMIY is a proven vehicle to grow men’s conferences!
STAFF FORMATION & CATECHETICAL CONFERENCES
Offering professional development for parish and diocesan staff is vital to keeping them invigorated in their mission and growing in their faith. It is equally important to offer opportunities for volunteer catechists to grow in their knowledge of our Catholic faith and to foster their spiritual journey. Gormley has experience with both of these groups and can work with you to create an impactful event.
HOW TO BOOK AN EVENT
Parish Missions are booked from Monday to Tuesday or Wednesday in an effort to keep Michael’s Saturdays and Sundays free for his family and his local parish.
One-day Men’s conferences are typically held on Saturdays, so these are only offered once per month.
