Transforming Parishes, Transforming Lives.
Equipping the Church for Mission!
M3 Ministries provides proven, practical formation, coaching, and events for Catholics and leaders at all levels designed to help you build parishes that make, mature, and mission (send out) disciples of Jesus Christ.
We aren’t here to sell a program or process. Rather, we organically equip parishes and dioceses with the tools and support needed to change culture and create missionary communities that bear fruit in the 21st century.
You don’t have to do this alone! We can help you:

Changing Culture is Hard!
Even the best tools, processes, and programs will only get you so far. Real lasting parish transformation occurs when we begin to intentionally live out the supernatural dimensions of life in Christ and combine that with solid leadership, clear strategy, commitment, and fruitful processes. This is the foundation of our approach at M3 Ministries.
We combine our deep understanding of evangelization, practical experience with leading and training organizations, and our concrete knowledge of making disciples with the power of the Holy Spirit and the spiritual riches given to the Church to raise up missionary leaders capable of nurturing and supporting a culture of mission and discipleship at the parish and diocesan level.
The heart of the Good News is freedom. Do we have the courage to surrender ourselves to the Lord and begin to live in that freedom?read more

Jesus' family members allowed their preconceived notions of "the Son of Mary" to blind them to His true identity and deafen them to His message of Salvation. Have we allowed our familiarity with Church to blind us and deafen us in similar ways? Have we become too...read more

It happens to many of us, eventually. Whether we are regular unpaid help at our parish, or if we have a full-time position on staff. At some point if we are not very careful, we will burn out. Like a gas grill whose tank is empty, our flame will flicker and sputter...read more
