AP Team Application

General Description of Amazing Parish

The Amazing Parish (AP) movement exists to transform parishes from maintenance-mode to one of active participation in the full mission of the Catholic Church which seeks to be an evangelizing church; working to engage and equip the faithful to do Christ’s work.


The AP leadership team will consist of 2-3 lay people and 2-3 staff persons who work directly with the pastor and are collectively committed to helping the Pastor bring more people to Christ and his Church through a reliance on prayer, sacrament and a passion for evangelization.

This role will require several leadership skills including the ability to establish vulnerability-based trust, a willingness to engage in productive conflict and to commit to group decisions, a readiness to amicably hold one another accountable for results and behaviors, and the collective focus on the goals of the whole parish.
