Summer Shorts - Josh Danis

Summer Shorts - Josh Danis

Most people know that we have invested heavily in Alpha at Divine Renovation. We do so because we have found it to be the most effective tool for evangelization. This week we call on our conversation with the National Director for Catholic Context at Alpha USA, Josh Danis. Josh shares his insights on the state of the church in the United States. We ask some very tough questions about the challenges that the Church is facing, in the US and beyond, and Josh does an incredible job of inspiring hope in us for our future. This is a powerful and poignant conversation.

We get to talk to a large number of pastors on the podcast but it’s always interesting to hear the perspective of a few bishops. This week on Summer Shorts we talk with Bishop Thomas Dowd about some topics that most wouldn’t expect a Bishop to be talking about. Bishop Dowd speaks about social media, how he came to discern his calling, and what life is like for Bishops in Canada. This is a rare insight into church leadership that we think you’ll really enjoy. 
Summer Shorts - Tithe.ly

Summer Shorts - Tithe.ly

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.

On our second last podcast of the season we’re joined by someone that's been integral in the development of our ministry. Church Consultant Brent Dolfo joins Dan O’Rourke, Father James Mallon, and Rob Currie to discuss how to help people move forward and survive the difficult and important path of parish renewal. Director of the Leadership, Brent worked with Father Mallon in the early days of Divine Renovation and his insight into building up leaders through teams was very important to the formation and growth of our ministry. We discuss how to build complimentary teams and give them the space to do their best. Brent offers some insight into some of the patterns he sees among pastors in the Catholic Church, how we can build on what works, and address what doesn’t. As a leader, pastor or otherwise, this is an excellent conversation for those looking to build great teams within their parish.
