Digital Gatherings Summit with Chris Stefanick

Chris Stefanick to Kick Off Digital Gatherings

Internationally recognized speaker, author and evangelist,  Chris Stefanick, will kick off the January 13 Petrus summit, Digital Gatherings: Reinventing Fundraising in 2021. This FREE one-day conference will provide Catholic ministry, parish, school and nonprofit leaders the tools and strategies to make their virtual fundraising events a success in 2021. 


"I am thrilled with the caliber of speakers that will be joining us for the Digital Gatherings summit on January 13," said Andrew Robison, president of Petrus. "We wanted presenters who have 'been there and done that' so that the advice is based on what has and will work. Having Chris join the slate is exciting because he really understands why it is important for the Church to pivot to new strategies to reach Catholics where they are."


Chris Stefanick is an internationally acclaimed author and speaker, who has devoted his life to inspiring people to live a bold, contagious faith. Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, OFM calls Chris, “one of the most engaging young defenders of the Christian faith on the scene today.”
