What can this convention do for YOU?

sold out




Who should attend?

The stakes are high and Catholics are born for combat.

If you are a Catholic who loves Our Lord and wishes to protect our country and our Church, the Church Militant Call to Action Convention is for YOU.

This event is for freedom fighters and patriots. This is for Catholics who reject the woke, the satanic, the lukewarm, the anti-Christian, the modernist and the ungodly.

This is a call to action.

You will gain access to experts who unseat crooked politicians and expose corrupt clergymen. You will be given our Field Manual, which details how to effect change in your backyard.

So stop talking and start doing. Join us in Detroit this August.

Who this is NOT for?

If you are comfortable seeing the Church torn to shreds, then this convention is NOT for you.

If you enjoy sitting on your computer and being a keyboard warrior, then this convention is NOT for you.

If you think you should call the shots and others should do the hard work, then this convention is NOT for you.

If you want your kids to grow up in a godless and anti-American society, then this convention is NOT for you.

Big announcement coming soon!


Fighters Panel


This panel of patriots is YOU. They are united together with you in one goal - to take back our country, one community at a time. They will help equip you with everything you need to accomplish change in your own city and school board, because they have successfully done so. They will show you how to elect leaders that don’t ignore the constitution, but live by it, and how to recall those that don’t. You will learn how to get candidates that have the spine to stand up to the State and Federal Government in positions of power so that your voice is heard, your needs are met and You Will Have Your Freedom! That candidate just may be YOU! But that’s another panel…

Moderator: Michael Voris
Panelists:  Jeremy Edwardson, Ronnean Lund, Patrick Jones, Stacy Langton

Legislation Panel


The local battle can make changes on a global scale. These panelists will show you, step-by-step, how to affect legislation in your legislature. Often times, it is easier than you think – you just need to know the steps.

Moderator: Michael Voris
Panelists: Liz Kent, Mark Finchem and Molly Smith

Researchers Panel


We live in a global information ecosystem with often contradicting information. What information is important? What information do I ignore? How does a person separate the expendable information from indispensable information? What do I do when I have conflicting resources? Where do I begin my search? This panel answers all of these questions and more so you can see clearly in a world of smoke and mirrors.

Moderator: Christine Niles
Panelists:  Jim Ellis, Ro Kane, George Neymayr and Michael Voris

Candidates Panel


American patriots running for office break down what YOU can do to impact any race, whether it be for local school board or governorship. From phone banks to fundraising to event organization, these patriots will show you precisely what needs to be done to make a campaign not only run well, but get the candidate in office.

Moderator: Michael Voris
Panelists: Ryan Kelley, Mark Finchem, Michael Peroutka and Kristina Karamo

Church PANEL

Parish Life Panel


The Church is not a democracy. You can’t elect priests or bishops. You cannot petition a priest or bishop into resigning. What do you do when you have a bad parish priest? How do you protect and save the flock he should be saving? What do you do when you have a good priest who sits in the bishop’s cross-hairs? How do you “circle the wagons” should he suffer attacks from his superior?

Moderator: David Gordon
Panelists:  Fr. James Altman, Matthew Hunt and Dr. G.C. Dilsaver

Spiritual Warfare Panel


We fight a two-front war. We fight in the material realm AND in the spiritual realm. This is what makes us the Church Militant. You cannot go into any battle, spiritual or physical, without sufficient spiritual preparation. In this panel, you will be given the how-to on spiritual prep when you go against Satan and his agents.

Moderator: Duffy Kane
Panelists: Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, Fr. Paul Kalchik, Dr. William Mahoney and Fr. James Altman

Freedom of Faith Panel


Despite its founding principles, America grows more and more anti-Christian by the day. Despite her foundational teachings, Holy Mother Church suffers from prelates who despise orthodoxy. As a Christian in America, how do you exercise your freedom to practice your faith both in the Church and in the culture? Look no further. This panel has fought for your right to practice your faith and now you will know how to fight for it yourself.

Moderator: Christine Niles
Panelists:  Dick Thompson, Marc Randazza, Jody Rossing and Philip Gray

Evangelization Panel


Global change. National change. Local change. They all have their place. But what about personal change? What about the individual encounters – the one on one’s? You have the most power to make change when it is one on one. How do you know what to say? When to say it? How to say it? These panelists highlight the essential machinations of bringing souls to Christ. This panel highlights the Catholic calling more than any other panel: saving souls.

Moderator: Michael Voris
Panelists: Terry Barber, Monica Miller, Kevin Roerty and Lynn Mills

When is the convention?


The convention is August 19, 20 and 21.

Can youth attend?


The Church is not only suffering from lack of warriors in general but from lack of young people. We encourage people of all ages to attend this conference.

Is there anything to do in downtown Detroit? Is it safe?


Yes! The downtown area is very safe. There are countless historic Churches, family-friendly restaurants, public parks and more! During the summer months, Detroit is full of life! Go to its website for more details:

What will access to speakers look like?


After each panel, panelists will be available to discuss and answer more questions. Tables will be stationed throughout the venue for each group of panelists. We encourage you to chat with panelists during breaks and meals. Please avoid private side discussions while another panel is going on.

What will I learn at the convention?


You will gain knowledge and acquire the tools necessary to take action in the Church and in the culture. Church Militant recognizes each panelist as highly experienced in his field. Panelists will describe how to maximize your involvement in your local community and Church.

Into what airport should I fly?


The conference center is just 20 minutes away from Detroit Airport (DTW).

Can I bring friends?


Yes. Please bring friends, family members and fellow parishioners. The convention is designed to teach Catholics to build networks of action-driven people in their parishes, dioceses and communities. The Church is in dire need of warriors.
