Dare to Believe.
Rise Up to Act.

Igniting audiences for
their mission in the world

Mary Sharon Moore, Catholic author, speaker, and evangelizer, is passionate about a relationship with Jesus. And she is passionate about helping lay men and women to go where Jesus goes, by connecting living faith with real civic engagement.

Mary Sharon’s mission? “To remain in Christ, and reveal him everywhere,” she says. “This also is the mission of the church.” 

She expresses this passion through her parish-based Dare to Believe, Rise Up to Act initiative, through retreats, workshops, and parish missions, and through her writing.

With over twenty years in the evangelizing field, Mary Sharon Moore brings a keen sense of the laity’s anointing in urgent times. Her teaching and stories show what living the anointed life looks like, here and now.

And no matter the age of her audience, Mary Sharon gently and irresistibly nudges people out of the “good enough zone” and opens up horizons of invitation, possibility, and mission.

Mary Sharon’s engaging teaching style brings home the message that believing in Jesus is not enough. “We have to actually believe Jesus,” she says. “If I want to follow Jesus, then I have to go where he goes, and love what and whom he loves.”

Who will help your people to dare to believe, and rise up to act? Here’s the answer.

As an active spiritual director, Mary Sharon also works with Christian men and women throughout the United States to help them to dare to take Jesus seriously, rise up to act accordingly, and openly live the faith they profess.
