Free Range Priest

Reimagining Ministry in the Digital Age

Fr. Cathie Caimano

Yes, I go by 'Father' - but you can call me Cathie or just your Free Range Priest.I've been an Episcopal priest for 23 years, and since 2016 I've been thinking about church and how there has to be a better way to share God's love in the world,A better way than continuing with the stress of declining numbers, declining funds, and institutional structure and mindset from the mid 20th century.In the digital age, there are better ways! It is my mission to find, fund, and support expressions of Christian faith and ministry that bring Good News to more people.Sign up below to be on my mailing list for blogs, ideas, and inspiration.


My work is reimagining part-time ministry, reimagining preaching, and reimagining digital ministry.All this is wrapped up in reimagining how we get paid for ministry, which I think is crucial for the future of church.If you'd like to be part of the reimagination, I'd love for you to join my mailing list and my community.If you'd like to talk more about your ministry, my ministry, and how we might work together, please sign up for a free ministry visioning session.
