WHO WE ARE

St. Paul Street Evangelization (SPSE) is a grassroots, non-profit organization, dedicated to responding to the mandate of Jesus to preach the Gospel to all nations by taking the Catholic Faith to the streets. Christ’s call to evangelize was made to every Catholic Christian. As an on-the-street Catholic evangelization organization, St. Paul Street Evangelization provides an avenue for people to share the Person of Jesus Christ and the truth and beauty of the Catholic Faith with a hungry culture.

Founded in May 2012, St. Paul Street Evangelization provides the tools and resources for Catholics to engage the culture in a simple, non-confrontational method of evangelization which involves making themselves available to the public to answer questions about the faith and to pray with those who request it. SPSE has had tremendous growth and now has teams throughout the United States and the world.

Our mission: To train, equip, and mobilize Catholics for the urgent work of evangelization. Especially for the proclamation of the gospel in the public square.

200+ Street Teams

Our teams are well trained in a powerful non-confrontational method of direct evangelization that has proven to be fruitful.

1,000+ Resources
We provide a curated list of resources for individuals and teams who want to evangelize, tested by ordinary Catholics in the field.
Fully Endorsed

Our bishops, clergy, and lay professionals not only endorse our work, they often join us on the streets.

Online Store

We strive to make evangelization resources low cost or free. Become a Sustaining Partner to access all of our online classes, online resources, and significant discounts in our store.

Find a Team

We have evangelization teams all over the United States and throughout the world. Click on the link below to go to our locations map and contact a team near you. Our team leaders would be happy to help onboard you to their team so you can evangelize when the team goes out.

Most teams evangelize on the weekends, in the evenings, or during major events. They go to places with lots of foot traffic, or do door-to-door ministry in rural areas or where pastors request it. 

If you don’t see a team near you, we will help you start a team. We do not charge our teams anything to operate. We just ask that one member, usually the team leader, become a Sustaining Partner.

We Need Your Help!

We need your help!

Our culture is dying and souls are in danger. Our Sustaining Partners make our work possible by praying for us and by supporting us financially with a small monthly gift.

We receive testimonies like this all the time: “God put you here today for me. I just got finished cussing out God and I know you are here because of what I did. I was about to commit suicide — everything in my life turned upside down on me — and I feel life is not worth living anymore.”

All Partners receive core benefits, including access to our online school, partner store prices and free shipping, downloadable pamphlets, access to new weekly lessons as soon as they are released, access to our staff when you have questions, and much more.
