We created the Advancing Our Church podcast in April 2017 because of the growing need to share best practices in Stewardship and Advancement with Catholic organizations. The podcast experienced success, and the show interviewed officials from the USCCB, the Leadership Roundtable, and Bishops. The podcast was even honored to be invited as part of the Media to cover the 2017 Convocation of Leaders in Orlando, Florida. While the show was on hiatus in 2018, the website and the podcast remained online. To Jim’s surprise, over 16,000 individuals subscribed to the site throughout 2018. In January 2019, the name and the podcast were incorporated into a private LLC, registered in the state of Pennsylvania.
Our Mission and Our Focus
Our mission is to produce a podcast that promotes the Catholic spirit and ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We promote Catholic Stewardship and Servant Leadership in our podcast to encourage others to do the same.
We are a regional podcast with an eye on national stories that are impacting the people of our Church. Our region is Eastern Pennsylvania, and we cover stories in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and the Diocese of Allentown. We will also continue to cover stories about people that are making an impact on our Church around the country.
