A network administrator by trade, Ken has been an RCIA catechist at his home parish, the Shrine of St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, since 2009. With the goal of becoming a better catechist, he began studies in 2010 toward a Master of Arts degree in Pastoral Ministry with the Mexican American Catholic College in San Antonio. He graduated in the spring of 2016, and currently has a level 4 catechist certification from the Archdiocese of San Antonio.
Having perused a number of websites and blogs over the years that are devoted to catechesis and/or apologetics, he noticed that the topic of evangelization (proclaiming the good news) tended to receive very little discussion. The desire was born to find ways to talk about the good news in a more general sense with those who are unfamiliar with the specifics that normally lead to the type of questions apologists deal with. To aid in that, this blog is an exercise in regularly writing down whatever comes to his mind on the rather broad and general subject of evangelization.
When trying to come up with a name for the blog, Ken was stumped. A friend who goes by the name Sagebrush online suggested Evangelics in the following manner, “Since you aren’t going to be talking about apologetics but evangelization, then call it evangelics”. Copyright Sagebrush if it ever ends up mattering 😛
Ken being who he is, expect any talk of evangelization to potentially contain the usual suspects found in most of his conversations: PlayStation gaming, Doctor Who, anime and manga, science fiction and fantasy, or the occasional foray into politics.
