We are delighted that you are here!
Three Minute Ministry Mentor (3MMM) offers you resources for learning and deepening your practice of ministry. Our weekly episodes will both inform and inspire your learning in practice. And we invite you to take time to notice, appreciate, and wonder how you are growing and changing in practice.
We think ministry learning matters because it shapes how you respond to a broken and beautiful world with love and justice. In other words, we invite you to be on this journey of embodying pastoral imagination in your ministry and work in the world.
Every week, Season Three of 3MMM brings you newly captioned videos, author interviews, featured ministers, and lots more! Additionally we love giving away cool ministry stuff, so watch for it!
