Bart has more than 28 years of ministry experience. Raised in a Catholic home, he drifted away from the Church during high school and college. Following a desperate plea to God while in an NFL Locker room, Bart had a powerful encounter with the Father’s love. His journey took him across much of the Body of Christ, fueling his passion for the intimate and powerful presence of God.
Bart has been instrumental in the Center’s growth. He is a regular speaker at conferences and retreats, developed the Centers’ “Day of Equipping” conference, and co-developed its “ABLAZE!” men’s conference. He has a deep passion to see people encounter the Father’s love. Bart re-entered the Church several years ago, bringing with him a vibrant love of God’s people. He’s been married for over 20 years and has four children.
A priest summed up Bart when he said, “He is one of the most passionate men for God that I know…. His heart is for the Church to live into the fullness of who She’s called to be.”
