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:
M3 Ministries provides dioceses and parishes with training, formation, and support that allows “ordinary” Catholics to become effective evangelizers. We’ll even help you develop evangelizing leaders who, in turn, can raise up and train others in your community to pass on the Gospel message and make disciples.
Engagement is so much more than simply getting people involved in parish activities. We can help you create pastoral strategies that connect people wherever they are on the spiritual journey and accompany them on a growth path toward missionary discipleship. Want more active participation? We can help.
A community of disciples focused on mission takes seriously the social teachings of the Church and seeks to apply them locally and globally. We can assist you in building a parish culture of missionary discipleship that looks primarily outward rather than inward.

What We Do.
One-on-one and team coaching in person or via Skype/phone around evangelization, making disciples, leadership, and cultural transformation.
Evangelization and Formation events designed to deepen relationship with Christ and equip individuals and leaders to share Christ with others and build a culture of discipleship in their parishes.
High-quality webinars, video, and e-learning modules designed to take participants deeper into formation material so that they can apply it to their life and parish contexts.
Comprehensive accompaniment with a parish or diocese that combines all of our services for a designated period of time.
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.
A Homily for the 28th Sunday of Ordinary Time Year C The Gospel for this Sunday seems to be primarily about gratefulness, about the one leper who returned and fell at Jesus' feet in gratitude! But what if there is more to this story? What does it mean that an outcast...
Some demons are harder to expel than others! Jesus understood this and taught his disciples when they struggled to exorcize a mute spirit from a young boy. "This kind," Jesus said, "cannot be driven out by anything except prayer and fasting." (Mark 9:29) Some demons...
"We have a really vital parish, just look at how many ministries there are!" I have heard this declaration countless times over the last twenty years as a parish mission leader, speaker, consultant, evangelization trainer, and diocesan employee. On the one hand, I'm...
The greatest need in the Church today is for leaders who are able to build and sustain cultures of discipleship and mission in the parish.

“Your presentation opened up for us new avenues not only to deepen our commitment to discipleship but to encourage us and make us look forward to forming more disciples for our Lord Jesus Christ! “
“M3 Ministries worked with a small team from my parish to develop the foundations of an action plan to move the parish out of “maintenance” mode to a spirit of mission. Their materials for crafting vision and mission statements were incredibly helpful, as well as utilizing focused and practical tools to formulate a plan that was tailored for our parish situation.”
“M3 Ministries has helped us to change the culture of our Parish, and we have begun to see the fruits of this in our everyday lives. Men and women are becoming disciples of Jesus Christ and we are equipping them to share Jesus with others.”
