Bring Church to People
People aren’t coming to church like they used to. Why not learn how to bring it to them?
Dream. Create. Find more JOY.
- An online space for creativity, innovation, rest, and prayer.
- A supportive community of ministers serving God and our neighbors in new ways.
- Practical re-imagination of serving with congregations, in creative/entrepreneurial ministry, or a little bit of both.
- Real talk about getting paid for your ministry - and real opportunities for collaboration and promotion.
What if there was a place to find Creative Ministers? If you needed a church website specialist or a digital silent retreat leader or you wanted training, coaching, consulting, or spiritual direction? Wouldn't it be great to connect directly with those offering new ways of connecting us to God's love?
And if you are a Creative Minister, wouldn't it be great to have others share your ministry with the people who need it?
One of the benefits of Bring Church to People is inclusion in the Directory! It's public and shareable (your individual page and the whole group).

Hi! I’m Cathie Caimano, ‘Fr. Cathie’,
and I started my own Creative Ministry - Free Range Priest - in 2016.
One thing I’ve learned over the years - we’re building the plane and flying at the same time.
We’re trying to change how we ‘do’ church - how we learn to ‘be’ church - in new ways, and we’re often doing it alone, without a guide.
And ... we’re worried about whether we can pay our bills - or continue to pay them - if we leap into something new. We’ve definitely never done it this way before!
I started the Bring Church to People Community to bring Creative Ministers together for encouragement and support, collaboration and promotion, prayer and rest, wisdom and growth.
Come join this band of spiritual adventurers and learn what we know - and help us learn from you!
There’s still no guidebook, but you’ll be on the adventure with others who hear the call to share Good News in new ways.
Start Bringing Church to People
Be part of a unique and important community designed for people like you - Creative Ministers engaging others with the love of God in new ways.
Whether you’re part-time in a small congregation (or more than one!), full-time with a side-gig, entrepreneurial, or just trying to figure out where and how the church is growing online, join us for more inspiration, more Jesus, more JOY, and more rest.
You’ll find new purpose for your ministry and new colleagues for the road ahead.
You'll join an online combination of workshop, lab, and sacred space and a group of ministers with the wild, adventurous goal of changing the church - and bring church to people!
BC2P is for you if ...
You’re thinking about new ways of serving your ministry, but don’t know where to start.
You’re looking for help developing and promoting your ideas for ministry - within and beyond the congregation.
You’d love to meet others who are also sharing Good News in new ways - to learn from them and share ideas.
It’s not for you if…
You don’t believe the institutional church is in steep decline and undergoing massive change.
You believe in doing the same things over and over and expecting different results.
You’re not ready for doing and being church in new ways.
