As founder of New Evangelization Ministries, Deacon Ralph has become a useful tool for pastors in assisting them in training their parish leadership in evangelization. He has traveled extensively around the country serving as an evangelist, and has served in both diocesan and parish venues. With 35 years of parish ministry, he understands the complexities and diversities of various ministry environments. When Dcn. Ralph is not consulting with parishes (http://nem.training/), he is a popular national speaker capable of speaking to a wide variety of audiences. His passionate, humorous, and playful style has captivated adult and teen audiences across the country with the truth of the Gospel of Christ. This presentation style disarms his audiences, and he speaks directly to the issues that plague our efforts in living the Catholic Faith. Dcn. Ralph is married to his high school sweetheart, Susan, and has five daughters, three sons (in-law), and four grandchildren.
