“Chris Stefanick is a living witness to Jesus himself- his faith is alive, his ministry is effective, and his teaching is grounded in the intellectual tradition and sacramental life of the Church.”

- Bishop James D. Conley, Archdiocese of Denver

“Christopher Stefanick, a devoted husband and father with excellent academic preparation and experience for the apostolate on behalf of youth, is most effective in communicating the Catholic faith to young people, and in preparing others to do the same. Having worked closely with him, I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend him.”

“I just want to thank you so much for coming and speaking to my school. I’ve been having a really tough year. Last right after Christmas my best friend passed away from a brain tumor. I lost all my faith in God. I figured that God didn’t care about me anymore or that he wasn’t even there at all. I started loosing my morals and not caring about how I treated myself. Today I realized that I deserve to be treated with respect and that’s all because of you. You saved me from myself and I’ll never be able to repay you for that. I now know that I’m worth waiting for. Thank you so much.”

- Teen, NM

“You made me think about everything I’ve been doing…and I think I’m going to take God’s road…I can change my life. And all of that was because of you. You told me the truth.”

“I know for sure you still have a ton of emails to respond to, but I humbly request for you to take a moment and just read these two words: Thank You. Thank you for letting me walk out from that talk a changed person. Thank you for not giving us that cliched “Don’t have sex, because you will get pregnant and die.” talk. Thank you for letting me know that everything, and I mean everything will all be worth the wait. Thank you for showing me my self-worth and helping me realize what I was looking for. And lastly, thank you for helping me find myself.”

- Teen, Philippines

“I’ve had self consciousness issues for most of my life and I had been letting people (guys) use me since I was about 12 or 13. I’ve considered killing myself many times (I have scars to confirm that)…Ever since hearing your talk my life has turned around my grades went up and I got an ACT score of 25 which has actually prompted my dream school (College of the Ozarks) to send me a letter requesting my application! Really all I want to say is thank you for everything that you do! I know you probably hear stories like mine a lot but you really did make a HUGE GIGANTIC difference in my life. Thank you so, so much for traveling around and doing what you do. I can never thank you enough for basically saving my life. God bless you!”

- Teen, MO

“Hi Chris! I am writing you from Subotica (very small town ) in Serbia, South-East Europe. As you maybe know,Serbia is mostly (85%) orthodox country. In our town we have a little community of 200 young people (15-30 year old) who are Catholics. Your videos are popular here…God bless you, and keep sharing God’s love to the wold!”

- Teen, Europe

“My children started bringing a friend around who was not even baptized. He soon became interested in one of our five daughters and we promptly freaked out. I sent him your you tube video of a talk you gave to young men. His parents are going through a terrible divorce which involves domestic violence, infidelity and the father abandoning the family and just a whole bunch of heart ache for he and his brother. Anyway he watched your talk and bawled, watched it again and the rest is history. He is now coming into the Church this Triduum and just swimming in that logic and depth that men find irresistible about the Church.”
