iAmplify builds capacity in religious organizations by architecting business plans utilizing our 5 Cornerstones methodology to enhance mission effectiveness. We Amplify your business. You Amplify your mission.
Responding to Pope Francis’ call to “boldly become citizens of the digital world”, iAmplify’s mission is to connect and amplify Catholic organizations in the light of the Gospel. Amidst the noise of today’s culture, many religious organizations remain virtually unknown outside of established circles. While religious organizations nurture the spiritual needs of society, they still face business challenges – such as working in silos, lacking resources, not operating strategically, and understanding/accessibility to latest technology. iAmplify was established to address the challenges of modern ministry and to serve those serving the Church.
iAmplify builds capacity primarily through collaboration, a suite of services focused on increasing visibility, and centralizing a network of resources. We approach and align organizations holistically – focused not just on organizational, but also spiritual health.
Are you a Catholic nonprofit, small business, entrepreneur, ministry, religious order, creative, that needs to rise above the noise? Then let’s talk!

• Lisa owns two guitars that are both named Mona. Get it…Mona Lisa?
• Considering herself somewhat of a “social chameleon”, Lisa has blended in at venues from Super Bowl XL halftime extra for the Rolling Stones in Detroit to a private Mass in the Vatican with St. John Paul II.
• Even after 4 years of Spanish, and having one set of Grandparents that emigrated from Mexico, Lisa once accidentally ordered a sheep at a bar in Puerto Rico. Sigh.
• At age 25, she scored her very first pet via a wedding centerpiece. It was a goldfish that she named Jerome.
