Reach More

Reach More is a movement that mirrors the mission process of Jesus

Reach More, an initiative of Evangelical Catholic, partners with the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, to equip local leaders to host Catholic young adult small faith groups at U.S. military installations. Through online training resources and weekly phone call coaching sessions Catholic young adults in the military are reaching out to their peers through effective lay training, small groups, and evangelization.

During 2018-2019 Reach More pilots were held at:
  • Camp Hansen, Japan (the trained leader moved to MCB Hawaii and established a small group there)
  • Osan AB, South Korea
  • Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii
  • Twentynine Palms, California
  • Camp Pendleton, California
Ten installations will pursue the Reach More process during 2019-2020.

Called, formed, and trained leaders join together to experience a small group. They have access to online resources and a weekly phone call with a coach who provides insights, encouragement, and suggestions to navigate obstacles. The goal is to invite non-church going peers to join a small faith group during Lent.

Young adults learn more about their faith, are equipped to live out their baptismal call to invite, and become motivated to gather in community to pray, share, and grow with others.
