The goal of Forte Catholic is to #MakeCatholicismFunAgain. No matter where you are on your journey with God we want to help you take the next step by inspiring, uplifting, and sharing the Good News…all while laughing along the way. There is a weekly theme discussion, guest interviews from Catholic leaders from across the world and fun segments like “Unpublished Worship Songs”, the ForteFive countdown, “Who Was Paying Attention in Mass” on the weekly readings and much more.
Taylor Schroll is a Catholic speaker, worship leader, radio host, track coach and avid gamer. He is a full-time missionary in Central Texas where he lives with his smoking hot wife Samantha and three beautiful kids(thanks wife). His goal in life is to Make Catholicism Fun Again by sharing the Joy of the Gospel and how we can live in the freedom that Christ won for us.
We kick off the show talking about the new Bible Lens App and how Taylor is using it to laugh non-stop. We share some of our best creations with you and invite you to play along! We also have not one but TWO guests this week! In the 2nd segment, we are joined by Catholic Video Game Streamer extraordinaire, Jonathan “Bearded” Blevins. He is a member of the “Royal Family of Twitch Streamers(a title bestowed by Taylor)” as the eldest brother of Ninja and Invictus. By day, Jonathan is a full-time Director of Evangelization and Catechesis at a parish up north and by night he is living out the New Evangelization in a special way by sharing the Gospel & the love of God on his Twitch stream(@BeardedBlevins). He is also answering people’s questions about faith while playing. His work is so refreshing in a place that is not usually uplifting. Jonathan is a fascinating dude and was a blast to speak with! In the final segment, Taylor is joined by fellow podcaster Chris Agron to talk about his obsession with Catholic memes. We hope you enjoy this double dose of people not named Taylor talking on the show! catholic christian gaming twitch fortnite scripture memes
This week’s episode is here! We are joined by professional actress and model, Kalyn Hemphill, to hear her story of living as a Christian in Hollywood. She is from Taylor’s hometown and became so much more successful than him! She is the winner of Project Runway Season 6 and has appeared in Days of Our Lives and NCIS:Los Angeles. She has a great story to share so tune in! The rest of the show, we play a new game called “Life Verse,” Taylor tells a joke he might regret and we talk about a new awesome app called Bible Lens that Taylor uses for some comedy. catholic christian podcast acting modeling scripture bible

The epic crossover event is (FINALLY) here! The hosts of Everyday Catholics, Fr. Ryan Higdon & Alyssa Trutter, join the show and I join theirs this week as well! Here in this episode, I tell them they stole my show name and we have interesting quotes such as “I am the chubby weapon,” “Taylor has two volumes: off or on” & a possible heresy involving “By Girth alone.” We get an intro to their show, how its expanding my boundaries and I ask them what a Catholic world view is and how do we get it? Keep an eye out for part 2 of the crossover on the Everyday Catholics podcast releasing this week! The rest of the show, producer Sam & I do a deep dive into our long-lost “Mass Text” segment on how hilarious the Apostles can be & the importance of finding rest. catholic christian podcast Jesus Miracle Apostles
Episode 92 had a large cast of characters! Hunter Batten joins Taylor & producer Sam to talk about the recent Jr High summer camp where we compared the Avengers to our faith. Then we spoke with Taylor’s former Professor and current bro Scott Sollom about RCIA and how to get involved. He uses some pretty hilarious imagery to describe the great process of people becoming Catholic. Finally, two HS students who were on the mission trip in Detroit with Taylor wanted to make their radio debut so we talked about their experience on the trip and they face off in Yoda or Bible(from downloadyouthministry.com).
