And that number is shrinking!
Institutional, denominational church - a building, a professional staff (including clergy), a set of programs, all supported by a membership community - has been declining for decades.
The Good News?
Creative, Sustainable, Digital Ministry is helping us reimagine what thriving church looks like.
I’m Cathie Caimano, 'Father Cathie'*,
and I am your Free Range Priest.
'Like the chicken?' people always ask me - and I say, 'yes!'
Because it's still 'chicken' - still ministry - bearing the sacraments, Scripture, and traditions of the Christian faith - it's just healthier and more sustainable (and it tastes better!)
For over 5 years, I have dedicated my ministry to helping others serve their ministry in new ways, both within and beyond the congregation.
I love God, love the church, and find joy in connecting more people with their faith, and encouraging others in their calling.

Whether you're ready to start your own Creative Ministry, wondering how to make congregational ministry more sustainable, or need help with your digital ministry skills,
Free Range Priest can help you discern your next steps, and where God is calling you.
After working with Cathie, I have a stronger sense of my ministry, both within the congregation and in an online format.
Most valuable was her ability to brainstorm and to listen deeply
