Lots of clergy burn out trying to do ‘everything.’

What if the future of church is about serving only as you are called?

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!).

Father Cathie

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?

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.

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!

The Sunday after Easter is when we always read the story of ‘doubting Thomas’. Thomas refuses to believe that the other disciples saw the risen Jesus until he can see Jesus himself, and touch his wounds. Jesus grants this request. We often frame this story as one that says it’s ok to doubt. But I…
