Church in the 21st Century


Good News
for your full-time
ordained ministry
and evangelism:
Use your gifts and
technology to

* serving congregations
* becoming an
faith practitioner
* bringing God's
love to the world

Free Range Priest is Creative

  • Clergy jobs serving full-time in congregations is no longer the norm
  • Becoming a 'clergy consultant' or 'faith practitioner' reimagines serving with congregations - and beyond
  • 'Virtual pastors' and 'online priests' reach more people with Good News
  • Share your gifts for ministry with those who need them

Free Range Priest is Sustainable

  • Most congregations can no longer support full-time clergy salary and benefits
  • Ordained ministry paid hourly on contract is affordable for small churches
  • Thinking about the business of church is how we value and thrive in our job - sharing Good News
  • Say 'bye-bye' to 'bi-vocational' ministry, and get paid by multiple clergy jobs for one full-time vocation

Free Range Priest is Digital

  • Online ministry is here to stay!
  • Learn church technology for more effective ministry and further reach with Good News
  • Serve your ordained ministry online with congregations near and far - and re-think what congregational membership means
  • Translate liturgy, prayer, formation and fellowship from one platform (buildings) to another (website, social media, video)

Free Range Priest is Ministry

  • Bear the Scripture, sacraments, and tradition of the Christian faith into a world that needs them
  • Bring the Good News of God's love to more people
  • Discern your gifts for ministry and how to most effectively share them
  • Provide spiritual care, formation, encouragement and support to disciples and seekers in more places and ways

I'm Father Cathie Caimano*

And I am your Free Range Priest

I have been an Episcopal priest for 20 years, and I have seen the institutional church - which I love - struggle to adapt in the 21st century

After a decade serving in congregations, and 5 years serving on a denominational leadership level, I felt called to walk alongside clergy and congregations as we find new ways of serving the church in the digital world - a world where most people no longer belong to traditional Christian congregations. 

I am passionate about sharing the Good News of God's love for everyone, and I am tireless in encouraging my fellow ministers to take bold steps into the adventurous future.
