Culture of Active Discipleship

An amazing parish is a place of evangelization and discipleship, but in tangible, observable ways.  The pastor, his leadership team, the parish staff and parishioners will regularly talk about their faith and relationship with God.  They will regularly ask one another for assistance in their spiritual journeys, and lovingly challenge one another to grow in their love for Christ and His Church.  They will actively engage in intentional programs around their faith, from Bible studies to book clubs to small groups.  They will know that if they don’t participate in these kinds of activities with one another, they cannot effectively promote evangelization and discipleship in the parish at large.
