This call to Evangelize is what we at The Holy Ruckus stand for. Through our blogs, videos, podcasts, memes, and products we hope you find something that inspires you to live your faith loud. We hope to seek out the seekers, the wanderers who are making moves to dive into their faith or leave it.
The Holy Ruckus is a community of messy believers not polished saints. A holy irreverence is what the Church needs to reach out to the margins and to shake out the stiffness. May the fruit of our work inspire you to challenge yourself, bolster your faith, and keep you grounded to Christ in your streets. The Holy Ruckus is what the Church needs, a movement that makes a ruckus in your Church, in your diocese, and in the world!
Josh is the co-founder of The Holy Ruckus, co-host of the Podcast, and emerging YouTube sensation (at least in his own mind). After graduating with a degree in Catechetics from Franciscan University of Steubenville, Josh decided he did not like to make money, and began working in ministry full time. He spends his days terrorizing young people by teaching the faith at a Catholic grade school and doing high school youth ministry. Most importantly, he's married to his college sweetheart, Emily. Together they raise three beautiful daughters, and haven't slept a full night in over a year.
David is the co-founder of The Holy Ruckus and co-host of the Podcast. Between a full-time day job, school, and part-time youth/music ministry, he's just a 20-something Catholic guy trying to stay out of trouble, and waiting to find out what God wants him to do. Most of the time you can catch him burdening his friends, tolerating his Salvadoran family, and screaming at the Redskins and/or Real Madrid on TV. He's been called many things (most of which we can't repeat here), but perhaps the best word to describe David is passionate; and he brings all that passion to The Holy Ruckus
Emily is The Holy Ruckus' resident Mom-In-Chief/ Moral Compass. She is the muscle behind the scenes, editing/producing the Podcast and the Videos, as well as actively trying to keep Josh and David out of trouble. Happily married to Josh (in what’s best described as a lapse of judgement), she is a loving wife and exhausted mother of three young girls. A graduate of Franciscan University of Steubenville, she works tirelessly to balance wife-ing, mothering, work, and passionate evangelization. Of all of The Holy Ruckus' collaborators, she is by far the most likely to be one day canonized (or at the very least have people show up at her funeral).
