2018 Evangelization Person Of The Year Award.png

The Evangeliszation Person Of The Year Award is one of the most prestigious recognitions for evangelizing and spreading the Word of God. Equivalent to a lifetime achievement award, this recognition is extremely difficult to attain and the recipient(s) have had to impact evangelizing the Faith on a national scale, at a minimum. The Award was created to inspire all men to strive for excellence when it comes to doing the work God and carrying out His Will.  The 2018 recipients of the Evangelization Person Of The Year Award were the following men who were the creators and inspiration behind what we know today as “Men’s Conferences”. These men created and organized the very first Catholic Men’s conference, The Cincinnati Men's Conference, that was ever put on in the United States in their hometown of Cincinnati, OH back in 1995.  Their legacy has inspired well over 200 men’s conferences nationally and continues to grow. To view more pictures and connect, join the official Cincinnati Men's Conference Group.
Congratulations to the 2018 Evangeliszation Person Of The Year recipients : Fr. Ken Sommer, Declan O’Sullivan, Tom Young, Kevin Lynch & Gus McFee.
