About Chris Muglia

chris muglia

Chris Muglia is a speaker, writer and singer/songwriter from Phoenix, Arizona. He is the father of five kids and has been married 21 years. Chris presents his life and personal story of redemption as a living parable. His tangible and practical presentations of discipleship create an environment of ease and openness leaving his audiences both inspired and motivated to serve and love in heroic ways. 

Chris’ experience of working on staff in Catholic parishes for over 20 years has gained him unique insights to the challenges of effectively communicating our faith. His liturgical music is published with Oregon Catholic Press and includes songs such as "Our God is Here," "Do This in Memory of Me," and "Let it Be Done," Although a Baptized Catholic, he did not practice his faith as a child. It wasn't until college that Chris discovered his faith and became a fully initiated Catholic. Chris spent ten years (2002 - 2012) traveling the United States with Sound Mission Ministries, a lay ministry devoted to renewing the family. Chris is available for parish missions, retreats, conferences and events.

Is Our World Unraveling?

Do you ever feel like the world we live in is unraveling before our eyes? Just watch two minutes of the news on any given day and it's not too hard to see that there's something seriously wrong with the world we are living in. Our country is only 5% of the world’s population, yet more than 20% of the world's prisoners are in U.S. jails. Americans consume 80% of the world's supply of painkillers and there's an astounding increase in antidepressant use. Mass shootings are on the rise, violence is all around us and there's an overall disregard for human life. If that's not un-raveling, I don't know what is!

I'm a Catholic. I love my church and I love my faith. I am concerned however that our church is becoming less and less relevant to the culture at large (as evident by declining church attendance). Some say we need more mystery and reverence in our liturgies. Some say we need more catechesis or programs. Some say we need more culturally relevant music, coffee shops, and hipsters on staff. I say we need more mercy. I say we need more compassion. I say we need to stop being scandalized by the culture and instead dive into it. I say instead of trying to build Christian utopias, we need to look out to a world that is full of people who are in desperate need of a connection with another human being and an encounter with God.

Through my presentations, I offer simple and practical ways in which we can live the gospel message. I go out of my way to encourage parishioners to invite their friends, neighbors, relatives, co-workers and people they know who don't go to church anymore, to my events. I emphasize the importance of family, no matter what that family looks like or how messy it is. I believe it is in the family, through family and with family that we can love and effect change in heroic ways.
