In 2008, Gary Zimak was working as a project analyst when he felt the call to form Following The Truth, an apostolate dedicated to teaching the truths of the Catholic Faith. Initially performing his work for the Lord on a part time basis, Gary is now a full time Catholic lay evangelist. Using a combination of radio, writing, social media, and live talks, he puts his communications skills to work for the Lord and His Church.
In addition to being a regular guest on EWTN and Relevant Radio, Gary has been featured on Ave Maria’s Kresta in the Afternoon, Sirius Radio’s Seize The Day with Gus Lloyd and numerous other Catholic radio shows. He is a member of Catholics United for the Faith, the Knights of Columbus, and The Catholic Radio Association. Gary resides in New Jersey with his wife Eileen and twin daughters, Mary and Elizabeth. They are actively involved in Sacred Heart Parish in Riverton, NJ.
Adhering to the principle of the “2 S’s” (Simple and Substantial), Gary Zimak presents the authentic teaching of the Catholic Church in a way that can be understood by the ordinary “person in the pew”. Having been a Catholic who simply “went through the motions” for most of his life, Gary understands the importance of getting to know Jesus Christ and the teachings of His Church. He can assist you in achieving the peace that can only be found by having a personal relationship with the Lord.
He is the author of A Worrier’s Guide to the Bible and Listen To Your Blessed Mother.
