From Fear To Faith, Gary Zimak
Are you worked up with worry? After struggling to overcome anxiety for many years, Gary Zimak has learned that Jesus Christ is the ultimate answer to winning the battle. Gary will share with you the Five P’s of Peace and help you make the journey from FEAR to Faith!
Trust and Hope, God's Remedies for Fear, Father Nathan Cromly
In times of peril, the evil one tempts us to lose confidence in God, and despair. Faith, however, instructs us to hold on to the TRUTH and to trust. How do we quell our emotions and bolster our faith that we might be victorious in Jesus in times of great stress and travail? Father Nathan will tell us!

"Jesus, I Trust In You!" with Gary Zimak
The craziness in the world can easily cause us to panic and forget that Jesus is still in control. We're aware that He told us not to worry or be afraid, but we do it anyway. When Jesus appeared to St. Faustina, He made it clear that our lack of trust hurts Him greatly. In this talk, Gary will unpack the Divine Mercy message and offer suggestions for trusting in the Lord, even when you are surrounded by problems!
"Fear and Terror: Whom Do They Serve?" with Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ
Fear and terror are both portrayed in negative and positive light. What makes the difference according to Sacred Scripture?
Father Nathan Cromly
Father Nathan Cromly is an informative and engaging speaker, writer, retreat leader, explorer, innovator, educator, and fire-starter for the Lord. Born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, he has joyfully served as a Catholic priest of the Brothers of Saint John for 11 years, and currently ministers in Denver, Colorado. Father Nathan’s spiritual direction, teaching, and dynamic witness have touched the lives of tens of thousands of children, teenagers, married couples, business professionals, and families.
Father Nathan’s ministry has flourished by God’s grace. He began Eagle Eye Ministries in 2003; it is now home to six forms of outreach to teens and young adults. In 2015, he opened the Saint John Institute (SJI) —a unique program in which young adults earn an accredited Masters degree while receiving spiritual formation from the Brothers of Saint John. In the Spring of 2018, SJI celebrated its first graduating class, sending its graduates to work for the Lord in the for-profit world. Inspiring and
equipping great talent for the Lord’s harvest, Eagle Eye Ministries and the Saint John Institute serve to raise up the spirit of the new evangelization in young people and send missionary entrepreneurs into the Church. Besides leading international backpacking trips and making documentaries, in his free time, Father has edited Totus Tuus, a preparation for Total Consecration to Mary, and launched a weekly podcast titled Dare Great Things for Christ.
To bring the Gospel message to the greatest number, Father has given his ministry a media outreach. He has appeared multiple times on EWTN’s Life on the Rock and Father Mitch Live, and Women of Grace. He has co-produced, with EWTN, four hour-long documentaries about the lives of the saints, and has been extensively interviewed on Catholic radio and podcasts, such as The Jennifer Fulwiler Show, Good Things Radio, and many more.
This ministry, carried by his passionate concern for forming and sending prayerful Catholic leaders into the world, has blossomed into the Faith and Leadership Consortium. Through formation and fellowship and prayer, leaders in business and in culture can find the help they need to dare great things for Christ. Above all else, Father Nathan is a Catholic priest. He has dedicated his priesthood to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and is humbled to serve Christ’s people so long as God gives him the opportunity.
