Greg Willits - Executive Director and Co-Founder
Greg Willits walked into the confessional in 2002 where the priest held a single-decade knotted Rosary. "That's pretty cool," Greg thought, but immediately forgot about it until two months later when he recalled that priest's Rosary and he had the sudden, overwhelming compulsion to make one of his own. In 2002 there wasn't much online about the Rosary, let alone about how to make all-twine knotted Rosaries. After finding some basic text instructions, Greg finally figured out how to make them (even without pictures), and started giving them away to everyone he encountered.
A few months later he was asked to give a talk about the Rosary and it was during that talk that the Holy Spirit inspired the ad libbed phrase "Rosary Army." That same week, as Greg prepared to make his Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary, RosaryArmy.com went online, offering a free Rosary to whoever wants one. In the nearly 20 years since, Greg was responsible for launching the first podcast by a Catholic organization (beating the Vatican by two weeks!), has written several books including "The New Evangelization and You: Be Not Afraid," has become an international speaker and consultant to Catholic dioceses and organizations.
Married to Jennifer since 1995, they are the parents of five children, co-wrote "The Catholics Next Door: Adventures in Imperfect Living," co-hosted The Catholics Next Door on SiriusXM Radio for over four years, created the That Catholic Show video series, and more. Greg and Jennifer have recorded hundreds of hours of podcasts with over 12 million downloads, and continue to share their faith and family on their weekly Adventures in Imperfect Living podcast.
Jennifer Willits - CFO and Co-Founder
Jennifer Willits has been instrumental in multiple aspects of Rosary Army from the very beginning, from oversight of financial administration of this 501c3 non-profit organization, to being front of the camera and behind the microphone for multiple productions produced by Rosary Army over the years.
Starting in 2007, Jennifer hosted the wildly popular That Catholic Show video series, which was one of the first ongoing Catholic programs developed specifically for the Internet. The episodes, with subjects covering a gamut of Catholic topics such as the Priesthood, Baptism, the New Evangelization and more, went on to be used worldwide in parishes and groups for RCIA classes, youth groups, and ongoing religious education.
