JonMarc Grodi’s interest in helping people understand the Catholic faith goes back to his childhood. His father, Marcus, a former Presbyterian minister, brought their whole family into the Church when JonMarc was only five years old. Growing up around converts and those exploring the Catholic faith, he learned to appreciate the gift of what it means to be Catholic, and how to effectively communicate the beauty and truth of the Faith with those seeking a home in the Church.
JonMarc went on to work in campus ministry while pursuing his undergraduate degree in Philosophy at Bowling Green State University, and later earned a Masters Degree in Philosophy from Franciscan University of Steubenville. Throughout this time, he remained connected to the mission that his father started with the Coming Home Network, and in 2022, JonMarc became Executive Director of the organization.
After 25 years of hosting The Journey Home on EWTN, Marcus Grodi passed the torch to his son JonMarc, who in his role as the new host brings to the program a lifetime of experience working with Catholic converts.
JonMarc lives with his wife, Teresa, and their six children in Perrysburg, Ohio.
