Making Disciples Today: Blog

In this episode of the Transforming Parishes, Transforming Lives podcast, we focus on how to nurture the disciples you have in the parish (particularly new ones)--especially in the early days of parish renewal when they get called upon to handle a disproportionally large amount of the work necessary to move forward with transformation.

Breaking open their own experience working “in the trenches” at the parish and diocesan level, and discussing with their many guests the principles, strategies, programs, and processes that make an actual difference in parish life, your podcast hosts provide practical, real-world advice you can use."
