Evangelist Hector Molina named CEO of Casting Nets


Casting Nets Ministries is thrilled to announce the addition to its staff of internationally renowned Catholic speaker and evangelist, Hector Molina.

Mr. Molina, a native of Brooklyn (New York), has been engaged in professional full-time ministry and evangelization for over 25 years and widely regarded as one of the most dynamic and sought after bilingual Catholic speakers in the country.

Mr. Molina began his ministerial career in his home Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens, where he served as a pastoral associate for over a decade before relocating to the Archdiocese of St. Louis where he directed the Offices for Hispanic Ministry and the New Evangelization. He most recently served as an apologist and speaker for Catholic Answers, the largest lay-run apologetics apostolate in North America. 

Over his lengthy career, Mr. Molina has ministered to hundreds of thousands at Catholic events throughout the United States and abroad and has been dubbed "The Motivangelist" for his dynamic and highly motivational style of preaching and teaching.

"Hector brings with him a great wealth of experience and a multitude of gifts." Casting Nets co-founder and President, Chris Stewart said. "To have someone of Hector's stature and ability will enable us to amplify our efforts to reach many more souls for Christ. We are so excited about what the Lord has in store for Casting Nets with Hector on board."

Hector has been married to his lovely wife, Uki for over 11 years. Together they have six beautiful children and make their home in St. Louis, Missouri.
