Speaking


 
Welcome to my Speaking page! I’ve spoken across the country at all sorts of events, from mega conferences to small groups, parish retreats to diocesan celebrations, and I’d love to speak at yours.

I typically speak on topics relating to the New Evangelization, the new media, Catholic social teaching, and Catholic spirituality. However, I’ll customize my presentation to meet your group’s needs. My goal is to create your ideal outcome and knock the ball out of the park.

Check out what others have said over at my Endorsements page, then email me at brandon@brandonvogt.com and we’ll get the ball rolling.

My Most Requested Talks

The New Evangelist: How to Share Your Faith With Clarity, Calm, and Joy

This talk offers a practical introduction to the New Evangelization, with background on the movement and several tips on living it out. Whether at the dinner-table, the water-cooler, or the Facebook comment box, these real-world, practical strategies will help you become an effective evangelist.
 

New Media, New Evangelization: Spreading Catholicism in a Digital Age

Have you ever wondered how to evangelize online? How can you share your faith through Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and blogs? Using personal stories and examples, and leaning on my many years of experience, I teach you the most effective ways to spread the faith online.
 

God Exists: How to Defend Your Faith to Atheist Friends and FamilyWhy God Exists: How to Explain Your Faith to Atheist Friends and Family

In 2013, I launched StrangeNotions.com, the largest outreach to atheists in the history of the Church. Over 500,000 Catholics and atheists have visited the site to discuss the big questions of life: Is there a God? Does science disprove faith? Why is there evil in the world? In this talk, I show how to respond to the most common atheist arguments.
 

The Saints and Social Justice: A Guide to Changing the World

Catholic social teaching has explosive power for changing not just individuals, but whole societies. And it’s the saints who light the fuse. Using colorful and engaging stories from heroes like Bl. Teresa of Calcutta, St. John Paul II, and Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati, I journey through the seven major themes of Catholic social teaching and reveal practical ways we can put them into action.
 

From Protestant to Catholic: My Conversion StoryThe Fullness of Faith: Why I Converted to Catholicism

After 22 years as a Protestant, my circuitous journey to Catholicism weaved through doubts and questions, Scripture and books, prayer and friendships, saints and more. This talk recounts that adventure and highlights what drew me to the Catholic Church. (Catch my conversion story on EWTN’s “Journey Home”.)
