How to Actually Share Your Faith

Meant for Mission

Who Do You Want to Become?

This is a 26 minute talk entitled "How to Actually Share Your Faith." It was delivered at Men on a Mission, a monthly men's gathering in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul-Minneapolis, sponsored by Saint Paul's Outreach. 

This is a 21 minute talk entitled "Meant for Mission" that I gave to 500+ missionaries and student leaders to kick-off SPO’s School of the New Evangelization.

This is a 2 minute video in which I both wrote the script and provided the voice over.  Many thanks to Cameron O'Hearn for producing this award winning piece. 

What others are saying...

Ryan O’Hara has a gift. He has raised up countless men and women who are serving the Church and shaping the culture for Christ. Because of his experience in raising up these world-changers, he is uniquely qualified to speak on many topics: especially the ways Catholics are called to make the Faith the form and content of their lives in a real and meaningful way. Our students in Duluth were blessed and inspired by his presentation.
— Fr. Mike Schmitz, Chaplain - UMD Newman Catholic Campus Ministry
Ryan O’Hara is a very skilled presenter, bringing that rare combination of gifts to both inform and transform others. A natural teacher, Ryan is clear, engaging, and really an expert at making big (and sometimes intimidating) topics of faith accessible to his audience. But he is just as good at speaking to people’s hearts and touching into those holy desires we all have to live our faith more deeply, especially through sharing it with others. Also, as a parish staff who plans speaking events, I can say that Ryan’s collaborative approach and responsiveness to emails and calls made the planning process very smooth.
— Matt Palkert, Director of Outreach Ministry, St Mary of the Lake Church
Ryan facilitated a short weekend retreat for parish leaders. He exhibited great skill in conveying a practical direction of ministry that is needed for today’s Church and facilitated reflection and discussion that will certainly motivate our parish leaders to help their brothers and sisters in the parish become missionary disciples. Ryan provided the boost and vision we needed to continue growing in our call to be an evangelizing community of faith.
— Fr Edward Girres - Pastor, St. Cecelia and St. Michael parishes, Algona and Whittemore, IA
If you are looking for a Catholic speaker for your parents, young people, young adults or catechists look no further that Ryan O’Hara. In my 20+ years of evangelistic work with these audiences, I rate Ryan in the top tier of communicators who effectively engage, equip and inspire in the Faith. I have Ryan on my speaker’s list every year and I encourage you to seriously consider him for your group. You’ll not be disappointed!
— Joe Roueche, NET Ministries Outreach Coordinator
Ryan O’Hara breaks open the word of God in a powerful and refreshing way. He convicts his audience to make Jesus Christ the sole purpose of their existence and the singular passion of the heart. Ryan entertains with his humor and light-heartedness, but more importantly, he drives a message home that sticks with the audience and transforms their lives.
— Dan DeMatte, International Speaker and Author of Holiness Revolution
When we asked Mr. O’Hara to speak at our conference, we were looking for something striking. We told him what we wanted, he gave us what we needed. He masterfully took the goals we set, packaged them in personal testimony, and delivered an uncompromising and upward call to lifelong discipleship. Ryan was a critical factor in the success of our event.
— James Munk, Kairos North America / Programs Director
When it comes to talking to men about what we need to do to live as men, few do it better than Ryan. My group has brought in all types of speakers, from bishops, to coaches, to college professors, but Ryan stood out as knowing what it meant to grow as a man and how to help other men grow as well.
— Joshua Fons, Catholic Men's Leadership, University of St Thomas
We brought Ryan to the Diocese of Superior for an Advent Day of Reflection for adults and he was wonderful! His sense of humor and his candor about his own life — shortcomings, struggles and growth in his relationship with Christ — kept things engaging and authentic. Afterwards, the retreat attendees were unanimously effusive in their praise and thanks for Ryan’s talks. I couldn’t recommend him more highly.
— Chris Hurtubise, Diocese of Superior, Associate Director of Catholic Formation
