Christ Is The Light Faith-based speaking to churches and religious groups

Gary Montgomery introduces his Mission Program:
Christ is The Light.

Gary's three night missions focus on seeing, absorbing, and sharing the Light of Christ in a faith-filled, fun, and interactive way.

The message is usually delivered in 3 nights:

  • First Night: "Find the Light"
  • Second Night: "Become the Light"
  • Third Night: "Share the Light"

The message is simple, strong, and motivational ...one you will want to share with others.

Gary Montgomery's communication journey started as a television sportscaster over 20 years ago. While tuning up his skills of sharing a story and presenting a message on television, he also was on a journey to a deeper faith and understanding of his Catholic Christian faith.

Gary started sharing the "CHRIST IS THE LIGHT" theme with 8th grade students nearly twenty years ago as a catechist, preparing the you for Confirmation and for life. You can still find him sharing his message on Sundays with his 8th grade Confirmation students, at St. Bernadette Church in Louisville, KY.

A Catholic Christian Message

Gary Montgomery reminds people how great they can be! He’s been doing it all of his life. He brings a Catholic Christian message of how to grow as a leader in all parts of life: spiritual, personal, family and career. Gary’s unique message is sprinkled with motivation, inspiration and a whole lotta fun!

CHRIST IS THE LIGHT

Working in the classroom lead Gary to presenting Confirmation Retreats for other parishes in the Archdiocese of Louisville. That led to presenting programs for parents of children preparing for

Sacraments, then to leading Men's Retreats, Women's Retreats, and then sharing a general Catholic motivational message at various parish events.

For Gary it has been a wonderful spiritual journey that has taken a former television sportscaster and put him in front of parishes presenting a message of finding, becoming, and sharing the Light, in a mission format.

His message was practical, engaging, humorous, and very spiritual.

I recommend him highly for parish missions, days of reflection, and just an evening's 'fireside chat.' He can re-engergize a lot of folks' batteries!
