    i.d.9:16

    • Description: "In response to the call for a new evangelization, i.d.9:16 seeks to establish communities of missionary disciples and to provide opportunities for young adults (20/30’s) to encounter Jesus Christ, hear His call, and decide to follow Him. i.d.9:16 is a response to what Pope Benedict called a “crisis of discipleship” in the Church today. In particular, Catholics in their 20’s and 30’s are leaving the faith at alarming rates. This is a direct result of ineffective evangelization and a lack of discipleship. We want to help parishes raise up young adult communities of missionary disciples who are characterized by what Pope Francis called a “missionary impulse” or a deep ache to spread the Good News."
    • Segment Guests:
      • Peter Burak
        Director, i.d.9:16

        2010 graduate of Franciscan University of Steubenville. He has a heart for preaching and reaching today's Catholic youth and young adults. His core message is: "Stand up and be a man or woman of God, in the heart of the Church!" He engages young people with stories from his youth, high school experiences, his two years on the University of Michigan basketball team, and his transfer to FUS. He motivates young people to stand up for Jesus and make a difference in their world.
