Jason Evert has traveled to six continents to bring the message of purity to millions of people for more than 20 years, including World Youth Days in Australia, Spain, Poland, and Panama. He has lectured at dozens of universities, including Harvard, Princeton, and the United States Naval and Air Force Academies. Jason earned a master’s degree in Theology, and undergraduate degrees in Counseling and Theology, with a minor in Philosophy at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
He is a best-selling author of more than 15 books, including Saint John Paul the Great, How to Find Your Soulmate without Losing Your Soul, and the curriculum YOU: Life, Love, and the Theology of the Body. He and his wife Crystalina are frequent guests on radio programs throughout the country, and their television appearances include MSNBC, Fox News, the BBC, and EWTN. Together, they run Chastity Project, the podcast “Lust is Boring”, and lead an international alliance of young people who promote purity in more than 40 countries.
Purified (Event for families 13+) - Purified is an event for the entire family, ages 13 and up, which includes Jason’s presentation for parents (Parenting for Purity), followed by his chastity talk for teens (Love or Lust?). After the presentations, a time of Eucharistic Adoration with music and prayer is offered, along with the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the distribution of free books and CDs for attendees. This format elevates a basic seminar into an encounter with God, through a life-changing mini-retreat for the family.
Love or Lust? (7th – 12th grade) - In this seminar, which has been delivered to more than one million teens on six continents, Jason and Crystalina Evert reveal the compelling vision of God’s plan for human sexuality and present an uplifting case for practicing the virtue of chastity. By addressing the issues that teens struggle with most, such as sexual pressure, pornography, modesty, and starting over, Jason and Crystalina offer encouragement for teens to maintain their purity or begin again if they’ve made mistakes in the past. When possible, the presentation is followed by Eucharistic adoration and confession. (Public school presentations contain no religious content.)
How to Save Your Marriage Before Meeting Your Spouse (College and Young Adults) - College students often feel lost and discouraged in their attempts to find authentic love. Nearly all of them long for healthy and happy relationships, but so few seem to find one. In this seminar, Jason Evert explains how today’s young adults can successfully navigate through the single years of life, avoiding the lies of the world and discovering God’s plan for human love. (Secular university presentations contain no religious content.)
Parenting for Purity (Parents) - How is a parent to compete with MTV, sexting, Internet porn, and all the other influences that allure young people away from a pure life? In this seminar Jason offers communication techniques, resources, statistics, and a wealth of information to assist parents in their task as the primary sex educators of their children. In church settings, we recommend scheduling “Love or Lust” immediately after this presentation, so parents have the option to attend both.
