People are always asking me what’s the difference between the work I do in the corporate world and the work we are doing at Dynamic Catholic. Others ask me what the biggest difference is between between the for profit and non-profit world.
Great work is being done in both these spheres, but here’s the difference: non-profits take on the biggest problems in the world.
At Dynamic Catholic when we sat down to set our strategy and put together a ten year plan we asked ourselves lots of questions: Where can we have the most impact? Who needs to discover the genius of Catholicism? How can we best partner with and serve the Church? What is God calling us to do?
We decided to focus on the Catholic Moments because we believe that each moment represents an opportunity to win people for Jesus and his Church forever. Unfortunately, we have been losing people through these key moments because we have been failing to demonstrate the genius of Catholicism in ways that are inspiring, engaging, and practical. We wanted to change that.
It’s a huge problem. It’s is one of the biggest problems in the Church today.
When we first published the ten year plan, some people told me we would never be able to accomplish it. But we didn’t set the plan because it was easy. We chose it because it was needed.
Nobody has said to me, “Oh, we don’t need these programs. We already have great programs.” Nobody. Not a single person. It is clear to even the most casual observer that world class Catholic programs are desperately needed for each of the Catholic Moments.
We have started. DECISION POINT – the Dynamic Catholic Confirmation program – was released about 50 days ago and the response has been absolutely incredible.
What I want to say is this: Thank you. Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for your financial support. Thanks for spreading the word about what we are doing at Dynamic Catholic. Thanks for being part of the team.
We are doing something together. It is important, difficult, and needed. We would not be able to do it without you. So, thank you.
