Welcome to Three Minute Ministry Mentor. We are delighted that you are here!
Three Minute Ministry Mentor (3MMM) offers weekly resources for learning and deepening your practice of ministry. Our weekly episodes strive both to inform and inspire your learning for the sake of ministry. Each week we also invite you to take time to notice, appreciate, and wonder how you are growing and changing as a ministry leader.
We think ministry learning matters. And we believe learning is at the heart of how you respond to a broken and beautiful world with love and justice. Thus, we are inviting you to be on this journey of embodying pastoral imagination for your vocation in the world.
Every week, Season Four of 3MMM brings you a combination of videos, author interviews, featured ministers, questions for reflection, and lots more! Additionally we love giving away cool ministry stuff, so watch for it! If you sign up today, then you will receive a free download about grief. You will also get access to the State of Clergywomen Report, an ordination blessing, and more!
