Has your ministry become more stress than joy?
Hi! I'm Cathie Caimano (‘Fr. Cathie’).
Many clergy I serve with find they’re so busy with the ‘stuff’ of church (buildings/budgets/membership/technology) they hardly have time for their own prayer lives, much less devoting more energy into bringing others closer to God.
This causes alienation from their sense of call - their own unique gifts for bearing Good News - and if it goes on too long, they end up burned out. Also, stuck!
Lots of ministers can’t afford to leave behind the salary and benefits that support them, or can’t bear to set aside the ministry they love for other work (or both!).
Imagine being able to serve as you were called without the stress of the declining church system…
I help my clients reimagine ministry so they can focus on sharing God’s love within and beyond the congregation without the stress of institutional demands.
Ready to enjoy letting go of ‘have to’ and embracing ‘get to’ when it comes to your ministry?
Stop doing everything. Stop being ‘in charge.’ Find more peace in your own spiritual life as you reconnect with what’s most important.
Find your six-word mission for connecting others with the love of God. Clarifying your call will bring you closer to fulfilling it.
Reimagine getting paid for your ministry. Letting go of fear that money isn’t ‘spiritual’ will help you see new paths towards sustainability.

Some Of The Joy We’ve Helped Ministers Find
Fr. Cathie has been immensely helpful to me in sorting through the overwhelming possibilities of using technology for my coaching and consulting ministry.
The Rev. Becky Swanson
Not Fainthearted Coaching
Fr. Cathie understands I’m called to be a minister in an emerging context but not a marketing or small business expert. She meets me where I am with sustainable solutions.
The Rev. Sarah D. Hollar
Being, Becoming Beloved Ministries
Fr. Cathie provided our community an opportunity to discern how God is calling us away from what is no longer practical and into new life, proclaiming the Good News in vibrant new ways!

Not paying clergy for their ministry is hurting the church and those who serve it.
Stewardship. Outreach. Committee. Volunteer. Livestream. As the year draws to a close, I’m making resolutions for my ministry. One of them is to stop using words that lock me into a way of thinking that is no longer working as it once did. Letting go of these common words and thinking more about the future…
Church technology doesn’t have to be expensive, complicated, or overwhelming. Think of Digital Ministry as a ‘church improvement project.’
2 Minutes of Good News
In the Acts of the Apostles we read a story of Peter having a vision and when she sees all sorts of food and hears God’s voice saying, ‘Get up Peter kill and eat.’ As someone has been a vegetarian for about 40 years this is not seem like good news to me at first…
Miracles are definitely Good News! In the Acts of the Apostles, Tabitha (also known as Dorcas) has died an her friends are mourning. Peter goes up to where she has been laid, he prays, and she rises from the dead! It’s a very early church miracle. And it’s easy to believe that these things only…
We read the story of Paul (then called Saul) encountering Jesus and being struck blind, then completely amending his life. We don’t all have such dramatic conversion stories! Saul was also a major persecutor of the early Christians. In fact, he was on his way to round up more Christians when he had this life-changing…
