What does mission really look like? This week on the podcast we're joined by Father Michael Mitchell, chaplain for Mission Youth and author of the book I Saw His Face, as well as Stephen Auth, author of The Missionary of Wall Street. Both men are involved in the Regnum Christi movement and both have travelled the world in an effort to bring people into a relationship with Jesus Christ. From opportunities to reach and engage youth to ways to reach those who've fallen away from the Church, this conversation is a behind the scenes glimpse into what it means to live as a missionary disciple.

This week on the podcast Mike Tanner is joined by Rob McDowell, Ron Huntley and Dan O'Rourke to discuss what it means to lead like Jesus? From the servant\leader shift to understanding who it is we're serving, we visit Jesus' example of what leadership looks like. Is that the best way to lead your church? Is it possible? What are the struggles we face when we strive to lead like Jesus?

If Jesus talks about money so much then why are we so uncomfortable talking about money as leaders in the Church. This week on the podcast, Dan O'Rourke is joined by Father Simon Lobo, Father James Mallon, and Rob McDowell to discuss the obstacles to financial conversations in the church and how we can overcome them. The team discusses how we tie giving with mission and provide a clear conversation around how money actually works within the church. This is a great conversation not just for pastors but also for parishioners seeking a behind the scenes look at how planning for giving works.

Everyone hates to be told no.  So why is it so important to say no when you're leading a church from maintenance to mission? This week Dan O'Rourke sits down with Father James Mallon and Ron Huntley to ask why no is such a bad word in the church? The team discusses why sometimes you need to say no to seemingly good ideas and why good leaders have to get good at discerning when and how to say this incredibly short, incredibly powerful word.
This week on the podcast the team takes on the topic of how to recruit and raise up leaders for ministry. Ron, Rob, Dan, and Mike have a wonderful conversation around the steps that are necessary to take someone from a casual observer and help them achieve greatness for their parish.  How do you know if someone is the right person for a leadership role and what do you do if they don’t see things quite the same way? This is a great topic for pastors and lay leaders alike. 
Leadership is about doing the right thing, and leadership is about doing things right.  Or is it?  This week the DR team has a conversation about the difference between good management and good leadership. It's not about either/or, it's about both/and. Click here to purchase the book that launched our ministry.

Is it Time to Change Music?

Is it Time to Change Music?

2019-11-0500:26:15

 This week on the podcast Dan O'Rourke asks Father James Mallon and Eric Myatt if it's time to change the music? Music ministry can have a polarizing effect on a parish. What sorts of instruments should be played and what songs should be sung can have a great impact and in this week's episode the team talks about when change is good, when change is not so good, and why. Have a listen.
  We believe that the power of the Holy Spirit is one of the three keys to parish renewal. This week on the podcast we dig deeper into this topic by asking; how do we know that we're being guided by God? How can we discern what God is calling us to do in a sea of personal and professional demands? Ron, Rob, and Father James walk us through their own processes for discerning and share with us some of the ways they've learned to be better spiritual listeners.
This week on the podcast we welcome back Gabriel and Chris from WorshipNOW. They discuss how we can meet parishes where they are with  music ministry and how their hymnal can make great music accessible to parishes in ways they've never even considered. Sometimes it's hard to know how to balance modern music with an understanding of the liturgy and WorshipNOW help bridge the gap. How can a hymnal be used as a tool for radical hospitality? Tune in for this incredible discussion on music in the Catholic Church.
This week Dan O'Rourke, Father James Mallon, and Eric Myatt are joined by Gabriel Wanous and Chris Nolin of WorshipNOW.  WorshipNOW provide parishes with support in pursuing music that inspires parishioners to sing praise to God. We know that music can have a huge impact on lives and yet we often fail to push ourselves in music ministry.  The team from WorshipNOW share their story and dive into how we can move from maintenance to mission in music. 
This is the question that Ron Huntley, Rob McDowell, and Father James Mallon seek to answer this week. Scripture is one of the most powerful tools that we have access to within our parishes and this week the team speaks into how to get people to recognize this gift. We discuss why reading Scripture is so important and some ways to get people more engaged in this conversation with Christ. Scripture has often been seen as inaccessible to some and this week the team works to dispel that myth. Whether you’re starting a study plan for the first time or looking for a new way to connect, this is going to be a great one to tune into. If you’re looking for a great way to introduce people to Jesus before you introduce them to Scripture, check out Unlocking Your Parish: Making Disciples, Raising Up Leaders With Alpha by Ron Huntley and Father James Mallon.
We're joined once again by Tanya Noye from Saint Benedict Parish to chat about why it's so hard to invite people to your church. Tanya opens up about some of the reasons that Catholics struggle with invitation and why it's so important. There are some incredible personal stories in this week's podcast including the story of Tanya's husband accepting an invitation from an unlikely source. If you believe that your church could get a little help with moving through the struggles of invitation, this episode has some great actionable advice.
This week on the podcast we're joined by Tanya Noye who works with Alpha and Engagement with Saint Benedict Parish for a discussion on evangelization. Tanya shares the story of how she fell away from the Church and why she returned. She shares with us the story of how Alpha has impacted her family's life and why she believes that invitation is so key to the future of the Catholic Church. This is a great conversation for ministry leads, pastors, and lay people who want to better understand the purpose of invitation, engagement, and evangelization.

Summer Shorts - Tithe.ly

Summer Shorts - Tithe.ly

2019-08-0600:10:20

We’re never going to move forward unless we start moving forward and this week on the podcast we talk with an organization helping churches make that happen. Tithe.ly builds custom applications for parishes that help them connect with their parishioners, support prayer life, and increase giving. In this Summer Short we learn more about how Tithe.ly uses technology as an evangelization tool and how that’s impacting churches worldwide. For those looking for a great way to connect with the people in the pews, especially outside of mass, this is a must listen. 
We often say at the ministry that if we’re not changing lives, it doesn’t matter. Roxana Kreklo, National Director of Alpha for Prisons, is helping change lives. This week on Summer Shorts we dive into our conversation with Roxana and there was hardly a dry eye in the house. The impact that this program has on those that we have universally dismissed is incredible. The personal stories that she shares, and the impact of the work of Alpha for Prisons is saving lives, literally. 
Truly great leaders don’t create great followers, they raise up great, new leaders. This week on Summer Shorts we talk to Catholic Christian Outreach President Jeff Lockert about why lifting up leaders on campuses is so important and what it means for the future of the Catholic Church. Jeff’s working knowledge of mission and leadership, especially through Scripture, is unparalleled. This is a great conversation if you’re sending a child off to college anytime in the near of distant future. You won’t regret tuning into this episode focused on Christian leadership.
