Book Review: Made for Mission

I read a lot of books, some are okay, but some are fantastic! Made for Mission was fantastic!! I’ve been sharing with you for a few months … but in case you need one more push to get you and your staff a copy, here it is!

Break Down the Silos

When we work as a team, we accomplish more than if we went at it alone. We all agree that’s true in business, sports, and even our personal lives … so why don’t we live it in our parish ministries?

On Being Wounded

We weren’t created for brokenness, but we all live it every day. We are a wounded people living in a broken world. Too many times we gloss over this in ministry at our parishes or want people to deal with it before they arrive … but our parishes can be a place of hope and healing.

Definition: Maintenance Mode

Continuing to read through “Made for Mission” I came across a deeper definition of what “Maintenance Mode” is and how it might be showing up at your parish. Let’s dig in!

On Prayer: John of the Cross

The saints are my primary authority on prayer and finding ways ordinary people grow in holiness. Everyone wants their ministry to be more effective, more successful, and even easier. Sometimes easier isn’t actually better … but I know one thing that can make your ministry better … if only you prioritize the time for it!
