Divine Renovation Podcast

To Inspire and Equip You To Bring Your Parish From Maintenance to Mission

Why is Parish Leadership a Team Sport?

April 13, 2020

At Divine Renovation, we lean heavily into teams. In fact, we don’t think that a parish can move from maintenance to mission without building strong leadership teams. This week on the podcast, join Mike Tanner, Ron Huntley, Dan O’Rourke, and Rob McDowell as they come together to share their thoughts on why teams are so important and how parishes can actually form and grow successful teams. During our current season, it’s important to stay connected and when you’ve got a strong team around you, that connectivity is inevitable.

Is the Validity of a Sacrament Sufficient for the Evangelization of a Catholic Person?

March 24, 2020

THIS PODCAST WAS RECORDED SEVERAL WEEKS AGO BEFORE TEAMS BEGAN SOCIAL DISTANCING AND REMOTE WORK Rob McDowell and Father James Mallon come together with Dan O’Rourke to dig into sacramental theology. The team works through some of the mistakes that we’ve made in the way we’ve handled sacraments in the history of the Church. Many show up for sacraments knowing full well that they don’t believe what they do or what they say. In these moments, there is no encounter. Are we doing what we’re supposed to be doing or what we think we’re supposed to be doing? Why have we focused on catechesis over evangelization in the Church? Do many of these issues stem from a bad translation? This is a great conversation for leaders looking to make a real shift from maintenance to mission.

Are Leaders Born or Made?

January 28, 2020

Is leadership a learned response? How does this question impact parish renewal? This week on the podcast, join Dan O'Rourke, Ron Huntley and Father James Mallon as they shed some light on this age old question and share with us their own stories of how leadership manifested for them.

How Does Consumerism Impact our Understanding of What It Looks Like to Be a Parishioner?

January 21, 2020

This week on the Divine Renovation Podcast, Dan O’Rourke is joined by Ron Huntley and Father James Mallon to talk about how consumerism impacts our understanding of what it looks like to be a parishioner? Too often we treat Mass or the sacraments like spiritual fast food. How has the shift to a secular world focused on “things” impacted our experience of Church? Does your parish feel transformational or transactional? Is your parish in the business of life transformation or does your community feel like a “spiritual vending machine”? This week on the podcast we delve into what we need to do to combat these mindsets in the Catholic Church.

January 7, 2020
