ANNOUNCING THE "ARMY OF APOSTLES" PROJECT
For years, I've been toying with the idea of a project that produced on-line programming to reach out to lukewarm Catholics and to those outside the Church who have little or no religious background.who may be attracted to witty, fun, edgy, and dynamic programming. But the idea never materialized until now.
My two friends, Paul Thomas and Steven Piskerowski, turned my idea into a reality. Both are re-verts back to the Catholic Faith and both came from very different backgrounds. Paul is a Marionite rite Catholic who left the Church to become a successful drug dealer in Detroit area. Steven, a Latin rite Catholic, left the Church for a local Protestant "mega-church." He too was a success in that he ran a counter-cult ministry within the "mega-church." Both Paul and Steven came back to the Church. They are on-fire and ready to serve.
Paul and Steven are about as different as you can imagine- a true "odd couple" - which makes them perfect for podcasting. Indeed, Paul once ran a podcasting ministry with his friend Vince called the "Army of Apostles." One thing led to another and the ministry fell by the wayside. Last year, Paul and I discussed bringing the programming back to life.
Originally, we considered putting together a program with Paul (a Marionite Catholic), Vince (a Caldean rite Catholic) and myself (a Latin rite Catholic). The program was going to be called, "Three Rites Can't Be Wrong." Unfortunately, Vince was unable to commit to the project. Around that time, my old friend, Steven Piskerowski called and said that he felt a call to get back into apologetics and evangelism. Could this be a sign? We arranged to get together and talk it over. The result is the Army of Apostles program.
AoA goal is to communicate the truth about Christ and His Church to a listen public that would never listen to a formal program. It's informal, edgy, and fun to listen. My role in the podcasts have yet to be determined, besides being the only "adult" in the room. We are also going to form a small group of young, dynamic, well-formed, Catholics and converts to the Catholic Faith, to contribute to AoA social media to build a larger community to help change the world for Christ.
