Gary Zimak – Catholic Speaker & Author

Gary Zimak - one of the leading Catholic speakers and authors in the world today

In 2008, Gary Zimak was working as a project manager when he felt the call to form Following The Truth, an apostolate dedicated to leading souls to Jesus Christ and His Catholic Church. Initially performing his work for the Lord on a part time basis, a job layoff in 2012 gave Gary the opportunity to make a bold move. After much prayer, he decided to “step out of the boat” and become a FULL TIME Catholic lay evangelist. He went from a guaranteed six figure income to no guarantee of any income. Since that time, he has traveled throughout the United States and Canada bringing thousands of people closer to Jesus Christ!

Gary is the author of A Worrier’s Guide To The Bible, Listen To Your Blessed Mother, From Fear To Faith, Find A Real Friend In Jesus and Faith, Hope, and Clarity. He is a frequent speaker at parishes and conferences across the Unites States and Canada, has an international radio following and is recognized as the leading Catholic speaker on the topic of overcoming anxiety. Gary has appeared on several EWTN television programs including Women Of Grace, At Home With Jim And Joy, Bookmark and The Journey Home. He is the host of The Gary Zimak Show on BlogTalkRadio and a regular guest on Catholic Answers Live, EWTN’s The Son Rise Morning Show, Catholic Connection and numerous other radio programs. He resides in New Jersey with his wife Eileen and their homeschooled twin daughters, Mary and Elizabeth. Gary is a member of the Knights Of Columbus, an instructor for RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) at Sacred Heart Parish in Riverton, NJ and the chaplain for the Catholic Business Network of South Jersey.

Adhering to the principle of the “2 S’s” (Simple and Substantial), Gary Zimak presents the authentic teaching of the Catholic Church in a way that can be understood by the ordinary “person in the pew”! Having been a Catholic who “went through the motions” for most of his life, Gary understands the importance of getting to know Jesus Christ and the teachings of His Church. He can assist you in achieving the peace that can only be found by having a personal relationship with the Lord!
