    Why is Parish Leadership a Team Sport?

    Why is Parish Leadership a Team Sport?

    At Divine Renovation, we lean heavily into teams. In fact, we don’t think that a parish can move from maintenance to mission without building strong leadership teams. This week on the podcast, join Mike Tanner, Ron Huntley, Dan O’Rourke, and Rob McDowell as they come together to share their thoughts on why teams are so important and how parishes can actually form and grow successful teams. During our current season, it’s important to stay connected and when you’ve got a strong team around you, that connectivity is inevitable.

    Know Him. Love Him. Serve Him. Youth Ministry with Domenic Inneo | Part 2

    THIS EPISODE WAS RECORDED PRIOR TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

    Life is hard for young adults and it's even harder for those that wish to pursue a relationship with Jesus Christ. Christian ideals are constantly under attack from the media and aggressively secular culture. Domenic Inneo of Souled Out Ministry joins us for part two of our conversation on how we can reach young people and share the gospel with them and why this is such an important mission.

    Is the Validity of a Sacrament Sufficient for the Evangelization of a Catholic Person?

    Is the Validity of a Sacrament Sufficient for the Evangelization of a Catholic Person?

    THIS PODCAST WAS RECORDED SEVERAL WEEKS AGO BEFORE TEAMS BEGAN SOCIAL DISTANCING AND REMOTE WORK

    Rob McDowell and Father James Mallon come together with Dan O’Rourke to dig into sacramental theology. The team works through some of the mistakes that we’ve made in the way we’ve handled sacraments in the history of the Church. Many show up for sacraments knowing full well that they don’t believe what they do or what they say. In these moments, there is no encounter.

    Are we doing what we’re supposed to be doing or what we think we’re supposed to be doing?
    Why have we focused on catechesis over evangelization in the Church?
    Do many of these issues stem from a bad translation?

    This is a great conversation for leaders looking to make a real shift from maintenance to mission.

    Should Your Parish Stop What They're Doing in Evangelization?

    Should Your Parish Stop What They're Doing in Evangelization?

    This week on the podcast things get exciting as Dan O'Rourke, Father James Mallon, and Rob McDowell discuss the evangelization efforts of parishes and whether those systems are fruitful or ill-fated. We'll dig into a discussion on what evangelization could or should look like and what it looks like far too often in the Catholic Church and the team will provide real, actionable advice on how pastors and lay leaders can make a difference when it comes to their efforts to bring people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. If you're a pastor or parish leader and want to know more about the primacy of evangelization, you're going to want to listen to this.

Robert McGregor ,

thank you

Love starting my Tues and my week listening to these podcasts with my coffee. Always informative and thought provoking, and inspiring. No matter how bad your day starts, hearing and visualizing the back and forth with each of you makes you forget all that and smile. Thank you

Father Andrew ,

Motivation and direction

Thank you for this podcast. I have read the book and took in DR16, so I find this podcast helps me to keep motivated and directed as I try to apply these principles to my parishioners.

Leadership teams, Alpha, and culture change are the three important aspects of the direction that my parishes are taking.

Very nicely done podcasts! As an older person in ministry at Saint Benedict Parish, I feel like I want to live a long long time just to take part in this challenging and ever-joyful journey of church renovation!
