John Rinaldo

Quarterly Adjunct Lecturer

I am a national trainer, writer, and podcaster having presented at the National Conference on Catholic Youth Ministry, National Catholic Youth Conference, the Religious Education Congress, and many other regional and local conferences.

I bring a wide swath of knowledge, having worked in full-time ministry since 2000. I've worked in such diverse settings as a parish administrator, the Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry in the Diocese of San Jose, Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, and as a parish youth and young adult ministry coordinator.

During that time, I also served four years on the Board of Director’s for the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry as chair and second-vice chair.

I have a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) degree in Leadership and Organization Development from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, as well as a Master of Arts degree in Pastoral Ministry from Santa Clara University.

I have been married to my wife, Rosie, since 2008. We have two daughters and one son. We live in Las Vegas, NV.
