My name is Bryan Mercier, and I am a Catholic speaker, retreat leader, author, apologist, and a Catholic leader who has been on the front lines forming Catholics for over 15. Thank you for sharing my vision to save souls, change lives and to reach as many people as possible for Christ!


WHY THIS MINISTRY EXISTS?
Jesus Christ completely transformed my life! I cans till remember walking into the middle of a huge field and sitting near a 150 foot steel cross which towered up into the blue sky. With tears in my eyes and a burning love in my heart, I remember asking God to allow me to heal people the way He had healed me, to help people the way He had helped me, and to have others encounter Him in a life-transforming way as I had. In short, I looked into the world for the first time and myriads of broken, hurting, lost, confused, and spiritually dead people who were crying for help. At this point my ministry was born, and I desired to bring Christ's light, love, and truth to as many people as possible. This is why my ministry exists! This is my life’s purpose and mission.

THE GOAL
It's no secret that the majority of young people are walking away from God and do not practice their faith. Who is not concerned about that? Many of these teens are not even sure if God even exists, if Jesus was real, or why the Church is relevant. Mirroring our culture, their skepticism and cynicism intensifies daily. Look around! Our churches are closing and merging, there is a severe lack of priests and religious sisters. In my diocese alone, 80% of the deacons are 68 or older and 90% of the nuns are 80 or older. Polls reveal that Catholics are at the bottom for passing on their faith which is why when we look around, where are all the young people? People are leaving the church in droves, we are not being engaged, and there is a mass confusion. Christ told St. Francis of Assisi to "Rebuild His Church."  This is my mission too... our mission!  

If you are at all also concerned about the direction our country and our church are headed, the moral implosion in our culture, the attack on the family, and the moral destruction of our youth, then please join in. Our goal is to help Catholics, especially teens and millenials, to know, love, and live their Catholic faith with purpose and passion. We want to be the spark that sets our Church, our culture, and our world on fire!

(See how below).

This is why our ministry needs a huge support team of people who share the same concerns and believe in the same mission, who want to engage this most important battle head on. Please see the
different support tiers to the right (or down below if on a phone). Your support of $50-$150 a month will help to create a solid and effective outreach platform from which this ministry can operate to save souls, change lives, reach, train, equip, and inspire. Of course, if you would like to jump into the deep end and invest more, it is welcome. More financial goals that are met means more souls being reached. Conversely, if the amount above is too much, feel free to give what you can. Scripture says to give generously but according to your means.  Perhaps $35, $25, or even $15 a month would be more doable. We don't just want money, we want YOU!  We desire for people who believe in this mission, realize its importance, and want to make a difference in whatever way they can.

JESUS NEEDED SUPPORT TOO!
Did you know that the Lord Jesus and His Apostles needed continually support too? The Bible tells how people supported them out of their means so they could do full-time ministry and build up the kingdom of God on earth (Lk. 8:1-3). St. Paul was also supported financially for most of his ministry as are countless missionaries and apostles today. St. Paul Himself said that those who spend their life preaching the Word of God and doing His work should be supported by believers and those in the church (1 Cor. 9:14; Gal. 6:6; Num. 18:21-24; Rom. 15:21-24, etc.). This is the missionary life, and it's Biblical.

Scripture also speaks at length about alms giving, exhorting us to give generously out of our abundance or minimally if our means are limited. Either way, we give a gift back to God for His purposes. We give back to Him our "first fruits" in thanksgiving and praise. (Prov. 3:9; Deut. 14:22-29).

HOW WILL THIS ALL BE ACCOMPLISHED?

#1. EVANGELIZATION:
  • Confirmation Retreats (our last chance to reach teens before they leave forever)
  • Catholic School Retreats
  • Parish Missions
  • Apologetics Seminars
  • Regional and National Conferences
  • Men's Conferences
  • Workshops
  • TV and Radio
These evangelization initiatives allow us to reach teens and adults and to build up our parishes at the local and national levels. Churches and schools often cannot cannot afford professional speaker fees. Likewise, we plan to offer some retreats every year for free to churches that have no money. After all, the Gospel of Christ should be for everyone and not just the rich. Your support will directly impact this mission and assure that I continue reaching churches and schools - thousands of souls who would normally be cast aside or left unaided.

Other evangelistic initiatives may also include training in apologetics and evangelization, different audio and video series, a Catholic "Man on the Street" series, free book giveaways to teens, and perhaps to parishes, and much more.


#2:  MEDIA: YOUTUBE VIDEOS, SOCIAL MEDIA, BOOKS

One of the main goals is to harness technology for our advantage, to reach as many people as possible both far and wide. Speaking live is a good and necessary endeavor, but the use of YouTube, social media, and other technological outlets will allow us to reach far more souls than ever before. This includes believers and unbelievers. So, the goal is to create a vast library of educational and inspirational YouTube videos on a whole plethora of topics including: Love and relationships, prayer and spirituality; apologetics and evangelization, the existence of God and deep questions of faith, culture, society, and more. This is huge. The amount of people to reach is limitless.

Story about my YouTube Channel: Recently, a woman recognized me in a huge crowd from my YouTube channel and confided in me that she had recently lost her faith in God. She was just about to become an atheist when she stumbled across my YouTube channel. She binge-watched all of the videos which answered her questions and doubts. She relayed how these videos helped her greatly and brought her back to faith in God!  Today, she prays, attends church, and even attends Catholic young adult events to nourish her faith. These videos do make a difference! Believers and non-believers alike have been telling me that my videos are inspiring. Imagine what we could do with focus, vision, and intentional evangelization.

Naturally, a competent YouTube studio is necessary for quality videos which over time will include upgrading cameras, microphones, backgrounds, lighting, editing software, and more. One thing is true, people of today don't watch poor quality videos.


PUBLISHING BOOKS:
Books change lives! They do. My first book, "Why Do You Believe in God" offers proof for God's existence, and answers other deep questions of faith. Recently, a 4-foot something 7th grader bought my book and devoured it in two days. A high school girl also read my book three times in order to memorize the arguments and defend her faith. This is happening in the lives of teens and adults everywhere, and this will surely prevent them from losing their faith in our modernistic and atheistic culture.

One reason people are leaving the church in droves is because they have not receiving answers to their good questions and objections. No one has ever told them why God is important and life-changing or why the Catholic faith is relevant. Thus, they go and search for answers elsewhere. These books will not only keep people from leaving the Church but will bring people back to the church. If you doubt that I am a go-getter, I am working on 6 books right now and have more books and smaller booklets in mind. These are essential for reaching people on a wide-scale,

  • "How To Pray, Connect With God, and Overcome Distractions!" Another reason people leave the Church is because they don't know God because they don't know how to pray. Their faith life fades away or some disaster makes them lose faith. Therefore, this highly requested book will demonstrate simply and practically how to pray, how to make prayer work, how to connect with God on a deeper level, how to listen, how to know His will, how to overcome distractions, and the necessity of growing in the spiritual life. Countless people have been praying their whole lives and admit to not feeling closer to God. That is why this book is so needed and important.
  • "The Pathway To Love: How to Find and Keep Happily-Ever-After!"  There is only one true love and many counterfeits that are called "true love." It is hard enough to find love in today's world, but finding it is not even enough. More than half of all marriages end in divorce, and many others live with only mediocre happiness. This is why we not only need to know how to find love but how to keep it and live happily-ever-after. We must also learn to avoid the potholes and counterfeit loves which only lead to pain, confusion, and heartbreak. This book discusses everything from attraction and feelings, to love and dating advice, engagement and life in marriage.
  • "How To Overcome "Catholic Guilt:" We have all accepted lies in some way about God or about ourselves. These lies lead to guilt, fear, shame, and insecurities which hurt or destroy our relationship with God and with others. This short booklet offers practical advice for re-training your mind with the truth and obtaining peace and freedom from anxiety, worry, fear, and perfectionism.
  • "WHY Do You Believe in GOD? (Published):" This book contains real conversations with atheists, skeptics, and those who have fallen away from the church. You are able to hear the arguments and objections real people have and how to answer them. This book is perfect for those who are searching and have doubts and questions. It was also written to help believers come to know their faith more and learn how to share it more effectively.
  • "Conversations With Different Religions:" This book also contains actual conversations with Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, and other religions. These real-life conversations make learning your faith fun and interesting, along with learning what other religions believe and how to answer their common questions, objections, and misunderstandings.
  • "KNOW Your Catholic Faith!"  This book contains information on a wide variety of topics including: the Catholic faith, apologetics, church history, common objections, understanding different religions, and more. Each chapter is short and to the point, giving you exactly what you need to know to understand your religion better or to get you started in being able to explain it more effectively. Why read whole books on each of these topics when they can be summed up in succinct little chapters.

#3. YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY: 

For over almost two decades in the North East, I have preached, evangelized, directed youth and young adult ministries, and I have taught, counseled, fostered, and grown Catholic communities across different states like Connecticut where I live. This includes: running youth groups, ten years leading a young adult Bible Study, helping at Camp Veritas which reaches over 1,300 teens each year, Catholic Underground CT, other Catholic groups, and countless hours of counseling and guiding individual Catholics to their goals and to holiness of life. If you cannot tell, I am extremely motivated and have a fire to reach as many souls as possible. Not always in quantity though, but also in quality. I have had the privilege of being on the front lines of Catholicism for 20 years and have extensive knowledge and field-experience. A fully-funded ministry will enable and allow me to continue cultivating and fostering these ever important Catholic communities which are the bedrock of our church and our individual faith journeys.


IMAGES AND TESTIMONIALS:


                    Speaking to hundreds of teens at Camp Veritas
  • "This was the best retreat of my life!  I'm so glad I had the opportunity to experience this!! It has definitely changed my life and I can't wait to continue strengthening and growing my faith!!!  Thanks so much!"
  • "The retreat with Bryan was amazing and completely changed my life! Before the retreat, I didn’t believe in God, but after, I did very deeply. I thought Bryan's talks were really informative and answered all the questions I had. I now pray every single day, attend Mass, and even pray at school. This retreat has totally changed the way I think for I fully believe in God now and have a complete faith."

                   Teens praying very devoutly at one of my retreats
  • "This was THE best retreat I have EVER been on. It really was amazing!!! Thank you so much!"
  • "I was so moved by your retreat today and realized how far from God I was. You helped me to realize this and also helped me to get closer to Him and to everyone else at the retreat."

                              Making a difference in the lives of teens
  • "This was the best retreat! I learned a lot and learned how to have a better outlook! Thank you so much!"
  • "I just wanted to thank you because the retreat today was the best retreat I’ve ever been to. I got so much out of your talks, and the prayer service was very powerful for me. Thank you for praying over me too. My home life is anything but pleasant, but the prayer service helped me to just let go for a while and be with God. I felt him really listening and everything was overwhelming... in a good way! This retreat was such a breath of fresh air in my life and I can’t thank you enough for that."

  • “I am so impressed with Bryan’s passion and knowledge of the faith. He held the attention of every student in the room including all the chaperons! He really opened their eyes and gave them practical ways of keeping the faith. My students loved him and were truly inspired by him.”
  • “You are a huge reason I came back to God. When you were speaking about love, I was talking through your whole speech, and you called me out on it. You came right up to me and said, 'God loves YOU so much and is in love with YOU.' Then, when the prayer service came, God’s love hit me, and I opened my heart to Him. That day changed me. Now, I live my faith out fully, and I’m discerning a vocation to religious life! Thank you!!"

                                  Speaking at a Men's Conference
  • "Your talk at the Men’s Conference was awesome! You brought down the house!! Your talk was even better than the Cardinal’s. Everyone just loved it, and I have already been hearing positive feedback from all the men who were touched by it. We most certainly will have you back for next year’s conference."
  • "Bryan was absolutely wonderful at our men’s retreat. He was outstanding and touched a lot of souls! We loved the energy and deep faith he put into the talk, and we have heard great feedback from the men."

       Running Young Adult Ministries (Catholic Underground CT)
  • “Hey Bryan, I’m the person who wore all-black today. I just want to say thank you for preaching the Word to me like no one ever has before. You really got to me today, and you helped me to love God a lot more than before, and you helped me to realize things that I didn’t know before. I have major depression, deep scars on my wrists and all over my body, suicidal thoughts, and much more. I am stable now. I see a therapist. But, today at the end of the retreat when we prayed, everything was taken out of me. I gave it all over to Jesus my Lord and Savior and I haven’t been happier in my entire life. My low self-esteem is gone I feel like nothing bad is there. At that prayer service, unlike any other time, I prayed really hard just to let Jesus inside of me and he came through. I’m just so happy. Thank you for making me understand Jesus more and more.”

Goals
$1,042 of $3,000 per month
The detailed description of my mission now and for the future may be found in the center section on computers or at the top on phones. God gives us all money and blessings. In turn, we are all called to tithe or give back to Him in different amounts, in different way, and in different places according to our means. If you feel God calling you to partner with our ministry, then please see the different giving tiers (to the right on computers and the section above on phones).

I ask everyone to consider giving between $75-$250 a month toward this mission. If you can more or cannot give that much, please join our team to save souls and change lives at whatever amount you can. That is between you and God. After all, it's His ministry He is calling me to. To reach our goals, we do need many generous ministry partners who invest at least $50, $75, $100, $150, $200, or more a month.

This does not have to be in addition to your tithing but can be your tithing, your giving back to God. Some like to give to their local church while others do not. Some prefer to give to missionary organizations, and others choose a combination of both. So, please pray and ask God if this is the ministry He would like you to invest in and how much He would like you to give each month. That way, you can be assured that you are joining in the work of God that He has called us too, and that you are becoming part of a ministry to save souls and change lives that is much bigger than yourself.

Many Catholics would like to do more for God and to feel like they are making a difference in this world. Joining this mission is a great way to join in the fight for souls and to help make a difference. Your financial support coupled with prayers and other aids will create a strong foundation to make a big difference in the lives of those who believe and in the lives of those tho don't, those who live in darkness, and those who live in the light, now and in the future.

What will the money go to? We are starting a non-profit organization currently for this ministry. While most positions will be volunteer, there will be some paid positions. You will also allow me to to the full-time ministry work that God has called me to. You will enable much missionary work to be done, along with helping us to buy supplies, do marketing and advertising, have free book giveaways, buying better YouTube studios: cameras, lighting, sound equipment, and faster rendering and processing computers, etc. You will also allow us to reach many teens and parishes who don't have the money for retreats or speakers... and so much more. In short, everything we need to make this ministry as effective as possible and to reach as many souls as possible.

This first goal pays the very basic expenses.

  • "KNOW Your Catholic Faith!"  This book contains information on a wide variety of topics including: the Catholic faith, apologetics, church history, common objections, understanding different religions, and more. Each chapter is short and to the point, giving you exactly what you need to know to understand your religion better or to get you started in being able to explain it more effectively. Why read whole books on each of these topics when they can be summed up in succinct little chapters.

#3. YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY: 

For over almost two decades in the North East, I have preached, evangelized, directed youth and young adult ministries, and I have taught, counseled, fostered, and grown Catholic communities across different states like Connecticut where I live. This includes: running youth groups, ten years leading a young adult Bible Study, helping at Camp Veritas which reaches over 1,300 teens each year, Catholic Underground CT, other Catholic groups, and countless hours of counseling and guiding individual Catholics to their goals and to holiness of life. If you cannot tell, I am extremely motivated and have a fire to reach as many souls as possible. Not always in quantity though, but also in quality. I have had the privilege of being on the front lines of Catholicism for 20 years and have extensive knowledge and field-experience. A fully-funded ministry will enable and allow me to continue cultivating and fostering these ever important Catholic communities which are the bedrock of our church and our individual faith journeys.


IMAGES AND TESTIMONIALS:


                    Speaking to hundreds of teens at Camp Veritas
  • "This was the best retreat of my life!  I'm so glad I had the opportunity to experience this!! It has definitely changed my life and I can't wait to continue strengthening and growing my faith!!!  Thanks so much!"
  • "The retreat with Bryan was amazing and completely changed my life! Before the retreat, I didn’t believe in God, but after, I did very deeply. I thought Bryan's talks were really informative and answered all the questions I had. I now pray every single day, attend Mass, and even pray at school. This retreat has totally changed the way I think for I fully believe in God now and have a complete faith."

                   Teens praying very devoutly at one of my retreats
  • "This was THE best retreat I have EVER been on. It really was amazing!!! Thank you so much!"
  • "I was so moved by your retreat today and realized how far from God I was. You helped me to realize this and also helped me to get closer to Him and to everyone else at the retreat."

                              Making a difference in the lives of teens
  • "This was the best retreat! I learned a lot and learned how to have a better outlook! Thank you so much!"
  • "I just wanted to thank you because the retreat today was the best retreat I’ve ever been to. I got so much out of your talks, and the prayer service was very powerful for me. Thank you for praying over me too. My home life is anything but pleasant, but the prayer service helped me to just let go for a while and be with God. I felt him really listening and everything was overwhelming... in a good way! This retreat was such a breath of fresh air in my life and I can’t thank you enough for that."

  • “I am so impressed with Bryan’s passion and knowledge of the faith. He held the attention of every student in the room including all the chaperons! He really opened their eyes and gave them practical ways of keeping the faith. My students loved him and were truly inspired by him.”
  • “You are a huge reason I came back to God. When you were speaking about love, I was talking through your whole speech, and you called me out on it. You came right up to me and said, 'God loves YOU so much and is in love with YOU.' Then, when the prayer service came, God’s love hit me, and I opened my heart to Him. That day changed me. Now, I live my faith out fully, and I’m discerning a vocation to religious life! Thank you!!"

                                  Speaking at a Men's Conference
  • "Your talk at the Men’s Conference was awesome! You brought down the house!! Your talk was even better than the Cardinal’s. Everyone just loved it, and I have already been hearing positive feedback from all the men who were touched by it. We most certainly will have you back for next year’s conference."
  • "Bryan was absolutely wonderful at our men’s retreat. He was outstanding and touched a lot of souls! We loved the energy and deep faith he put into the talk, and we have heard great feedback from the men."

       Running Young Adult Ministries (Catholic Underground CT)
  • “Hey Bryan, I’m the person who wore all-black today. I just want to say thank you for preaching the Word to me like no one ever has before. You really got to me today, and you helped me to love God a lot more than before, and you helped me to realize things that I didn’t know before. I have major depression, deep scars on my wrists and all over my body, suicidal thoughts, and much more. I am stable now. I see a therapist. But, today at the end of the retreat when we prayed, everything was taken out of me. I gave it all over to Jesus my Lord and Savior and I haven’t been happier in my entire life. My low self-esteem is gone I feel like nothing bad is there. At that prayer service, unlike any other time, I prayed really hard just to let Jesus inside of me and he came through. I’m just so happy. Thank you for making me understand Jesus more and more.”
