Breakout Session Speaker


Jason Simon is the president of The Evangelical Catholic (EC). After working briefly in engineering, he began working in the Church as a parish director of religious education and youth ministry. Through this work, he saw the power of evangelization in the Church and his passion to see more lives impacted by the Holy Spirit. In 2007, he graduated from the M.Div. theology program at the University of Notre Dame and then began leading the EC. Under his leadership, the EC has experienced consistent expansion by equipping local Catholic leaders to not only be disciples but disciple-makers. Jason and the EC’s staff built Reach More™ and Nextstep to equip Catholic lay leaders to fulfill the Great Commission. He lives in Madison, Wisconsin, with his wife, Grace, and six children.
