Building on his experience as founder of JustFaith, Jezreel presents the case for how to renew parish life by promoting lay ministry, an outward mission-driven identity that connects evangelization, faith-formation, service, and social justice.
Based on talks and presentations honed over many years, Jezreel begins by arguing that a true “Vatican II” parish reflects understanding that ministry is done by everyone, everywhere—not just by clergy and not just within the parish. He ties this to Pope Francis’s vision of a community of missionary disciples. Ministry within the parish must be balanced by outward ministry in the world. Faith formation must be connected to social consciousness. He brings in the example and experience of JustFaith as a force for parish renewal, and ends with a guidebook for how to develop a mission-driven parish. Throughout the book is leavened by reflections on scripture and his own personal experience.

What is the future of the American Church? Building on the legacy of the Catholic Church’s robust historical witness, the inspiration of Pope Fran­cis, and his own experiences as parish minister, Catholic Worker member, and founder of Just­Faith Ministries, Jack Jezreel presents a unique vision for renewing parish life.

Promoting an outward, mission-oriented iden­tity that connects evangelization, faith-forma­tion, service, spirituality, and social justice, he argues that a true “Vatican II” parish knows that ministry is done by everyone, everywhere – not exclusively by clergy and not primarily on parish property. He ties this to Pope Francis’s vision of a community of missionary disciples and the call of “encounter.”

The book is leavened by Jezreel’s reflections on scripture and his own personal experience of family, parish ministry, service, and work for social justice. He ends the book with a practi­cal guide for implementing these principles in your own parish.
