Missionary Planning and Leadership

Equipping Leaders and Parishes for Making Disciples

The Office for Missionary Planning and Leadership supports parish leadership in their singular mission of making disciples (Matthew 28:16-20).  We serve parishes in living out this mission through leadership training, transition and organizational health coaching, strategic missionary planning, data collection and analysis, the Building Committee proxy process, and norms and manuals for Pastoral Councils, Finance Councils, Trustees, and Parish Committees.

Equipping Leaders for Mission

In collaboration with the Office for Continuing Education of Clergy and other Archdiocesan Offices, ongoing formation opportunities and individual consultation are available to parish or cluster staffs.

Strategic Missionary Planning

MissionInsite Data

MissionInsite empowers Archdiocesan offices, deaneries, parishes and schools with demographic tools to bridge the gap from data to decision.  It takes data from various sources, including inside and outside the parish.

Transition & Organization Health Coaching

Future planning for free-standing and multi-parish communities in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is coordinated by the Office for Missionary Planning and Leadership. Many of the resources are easy to use and can be self-guided.
