You've read the books, been to the conferences, and now you want to work toward PARISH TRANSFORMATION--but you're not sure where to begin.

Let Us Help!

Today, we have access to the highest number of incredibly fruitful programs and processes for proclamation of the Gospel and catechesis than we've ever had. However, individuals, leaders, and leadership teams often lack the practical experience and understanding of evangelization necessary to develop pastoral strategies that link these resources together and create a clear path toward renewal and a culture of missionary discipleship.

The M3 Missionary Leadership Academy provides concrete, in-depth formation, strategies, tips, and best practices that equip Catholics at all levels with the skills and knowledge they need to transform their parish or diocese into a community of missionary disciples--all in a convenient and flexible format.

Our virtual courses focus on practical application and utilize high-quality video instruction combined with workbooks, resource guides, project plans, checklists, personal reflection journals, and other downloadable content so that you can make a lasting impact whether you are volunteering in a ministry, on a parish council, driving transformation as a staff member, or leading the charge as a pastor.

This isn't theory but actual battle-tested material shared by experienced evangelizers and leaders who have impacted individuals and communities!


Looking for solid training that will equip you to make a real impact on the parish and the world?

We got you covered! Whether you are:

  • A ministry team member passionate about evangelization
  • A parish council member convinced of the need for change but unsure how to accomplish it
  • A Faith Formation Director looking to make disciples of the adults in the parish
  • A catechist who wants to see more children, young people, and families encounter Jesus
  • A pastor looking to build a leadership team and move the parish from maintenance to mission
  • A Director of Religious Education looking to engage parents of RE students in their Catholic Faith

or anyone in between, M3 Academy was designed specifically to provide formation and training in areas critically important for parish renewal and cultural change to individuals and leaders who have a passionate desire to see their communities become channels of God's healing, mercy, providence, and love.
