The Amazing Parish is an extraordinary opportunity to experience a fast-growing movement of parishes who want to provide amazing ministry to those they serve. Our conferences feature national keynote speakers, amazing prayer experiences, and the opportunity to meet committed parish leaders from around the country. Each conference not only presents important and challenging ideas but guides a parish leadership team in the creation of the plan that they can take back to their parish and use to make it more amazing.
To attend the conference, your parish needs to bring a team of 3-5 parish leaders, one of whom must be the pastor. We call this your parish leadership team. They will all attend the conference and also implement the insights you gain back in your parish. So you will want to think carefully about who to bring.
The attendees who accompany your pastor may be a mix of both staff and volunteers. There is no formula. Some parishes will bring paid staff, others may bring volunteers (such as a parish council president). Some may bring the music minister and business manager; others may bring the youth minister and webmaster. Most important is that they are people the pastor believes he can work closely with to shoulder the responsibility for making, and keeping, the parish amazing.
This event is intended for parishes in the Archdiocese of Detroit. If you are from another diocese and are interested in learning more about Amazing Parish, please check out the upcoming schedule of conferences at the Amazing Parish website.
