Evangelization &
Family Life Ministries

“… to equip the holy ones for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12)

The Office of Evangelization and Family Life Ministries supports the mission of the Archdiocese by providing pastoral equipping to ministry leaders within the Archdiocese of Denver. The “EFLM” office offers this equipping primarily through intentional accompanying or “coaching” our local leaders.  The Office also provides equipping through workshops, conferences, and retreats.

The Office is broken into three distinct teams which provide direct support to ministry leaders depending on the area of parish ministry they oversee. Every team includes individuals from both the english speaking and hispanic community which allows the office to provide effective support to all leaders within the Archdiocese.

Occasionally the Office of Evangelization and Family Life Ministries will host retreats, workshops or conferences for the larger Catholic community.  On this site you’ll find information about these broader offerings, a collection of resources we’ve curated, and the names of our team members. We would be happy to assist you with any questions you may have via the contact form at the bottom of this page!

Evangelization Workshops

The workshop addresses the most common misconceptions about evangelization, teaches the “trail” individuals take on their journey from no faith to a conversion (the thresholds of conversion), and equips participants with the skills necessary to evangelize. Our office is not charging any fee for this training. Email if you are interested in learning more!
