  • Chapter 2: Culture Change

    Why do we need to talk about parish renewal right now? And what is the goal of parish renewal in the first place? Tim notes that it all starts with your parish culture and breaks down the reasons it is absolutely necessary to put our focus on our parish culture to succeed in renewal.

  • Chapter 3: Why the Parish?

    Is the parish worth saving? In this chapter, Tim shows us why the parish is vital and provides a few frameworks to view it with a more hopeful lens.

  • Chapter 4: The Four Types of Parishes

    This chapter is a self-diagnosis for parishes. Tim provides a framework of the four types of parishes. The diagnosis will serve as the starting point on your parish’s journey of renewal.

  • Chapter 5: Introduction

    This chapter introduces the section “What is the real issue?”. In the next few chapters, Tim will look at the cultural roots of inertia in our parishes and give us a run-down on the basic requirements that will make it possible for renewal to take place.

  • Chapter 6: The Real Crisis

    Tim notes that the real crisis lies in nothing more than a lack of discipleship. Everything flows from that point. However, fixing that issue is easier said than done because the roots run deep. Cultural Catholicism is dying, and that poses challenges.

  • Chapter 7: What is a Disciple?

    Tim makes a stark point: If we are going to talk about discipleship in our parishes and with our parishioners, the language must be crystal clear. This chapter discusses how you and your parish can better understand and communicate what discipleship truly is.

    What is evangelization? It is the core identity of the Church! Tim gives us the process of evangelization and touches on the “New Evangelization” and why it is vital for parish renewal.

  • Chapter 9: A Snapshot of a Parish Today

    A parish leader must understand their mission field. Tim gives us a data snapshot of those people who are in your parish today. This is key to being able to move forward with effective measures.

  • Chapter 10: Introduction to the Four Keys
