Hi, I'm Cathie Caimano*
('
Fr. Cathie')

Every day I help clergy and congregations reimagine ministry by teaching them how to...

  • Start their own Creative Ministry as authors, retreat leaders, spiritual gifts developers, consultants, life event officiants, faith practice gurus and more!
  • Learn to serve truly part-time in a way that is Sustainable Ministry for clergy and congregations alike!
  • Develop their Digital Ministry skills and online presence that helps them bring more Good News to more people!
Reimagine 

What if you could serve the way you're called?

So much of our time, energy, and resources are spent trying to maintain an institutional church that is in steep decline.

The way we 'do' church - a building, a clergy person, a set of programs, and a defined group of people who support and are supported by it - is no longer the only vision of how we share the Gospel in the world. It can't be - it's too exhausting to maintain for many !

Reimagining ministry means listening anew to the voice of God calling us into peace, forgiveness, reconciliation, love, hope, and joy, and letting this guide our vision for serving others as the church.

It's practical ways to let go of 'the way we've always done it' and reach for 'you give them something to eat'.

If you are called to the Future of Church, I can help you make a map to get there.

* Who am I? 

I am an Episcopal priest, ordained for over 20 years. I've served congregations in New York City; Durham, North Carolina; and Wichita, Kansas, and on the staff of the Bishop of North Carolina (you might have heard of him).

In 2016 I stepped out in faith and launched Free Range Priest, dedicated to helping clergy and congregations navigate the 21st century church - and world - through Creative, Sustainable, and Digital Ministry.

Since then I have worked with hundreds of ministers - clergy and lay, those in congregations and not, from many denominations and none - all with the same question: how do I share the love of God more fully in the world?

When I'm not reimagining ministry, I can be found at home near Charlotte, NC with my husband and adorable Great Dane, or running an ultramarathon.
