bring a sustainable, scalable charism discernment solution into your parish life

We are Many Parts Ministries and our mission is to make it a normal, expected part of Catholic adulthood to discern your charisms within the next 10-15 years.  A Church where everyone knows their charisms is a Church that will overtake the world in a single generation.

Together, we are forming that generation.

We want to empower your parish to cooperate with the work of the Holy Spirit in a whole new way that improves your parish engagement, equips lay leaders, and decreases burnout, all while unlocking the fruits of the Holy Spirit in the lives of your parishioners in ways they have never experienced before.

We don't rely on a single invitation to bring parishioners into charism discernment - we give you the tools to create a comprehensive experience that permeates every part of parish life.

New things take time to catch on, and if charism discernment is new to your parish we can't expect it to take off instantly in a sustainable way. We must play the long game - integrating charism discernment and commitment into parishioners' digital life, their families, their small groups, and their Sunday Mass community - in a way that invites them to discern well and commit faithfully to the use of their charisms for the long haul.

Thankfully, our resources give you a comprehensive guide to doing this without making more work for your already strapped staff and lay leaders.

We want to help change the culture of your parish into one where the workings of the Holy Spirit are named, valued, and expressed with boldness by giving you the tools to integrate charism discernment into every part of parish life - from stewardship renewal to weekly homilies - so that it becomes the norm in your community to call out God's gifts and to use them well. 

The backbone of our parish program is our online charism assessment.

This assessment allows all your parishioners to quickly and easily begin their charism discernment journey on their phone, tablet or computer and looks at two key factors: a person’s “identity quotient” - insight into how much their sense of safety and self flows from God - and their likelihood for each of the charisms.

At the end of the assessment they will receive a color “grade” for both the identity and individual charisms (green, orange, or red) which will then auto-populate their personal, fully customized PDF report with next steps tailored to their unique situation, pulling out their most likely charisms for further discernment.

After completing the assessment your parishioners will be invited, challenged, and encouraged in their individual charism discernment journey by our automated follow ups, and you will have comprehensive access to their assessment data - both identity & charisms.

Then we train you to deploy this data in a variety of ways to improve and streamline parish decision-making, event planning, volunteer outreach, and general parish communication. From specifically inviting people high for “Hospitality” to be greeters at mass to combing through the parish for a unique combination of gifts for a leadership position, this data empowers you to see where people are, engage them where they are most gifted, and track growth in individuals and the community over time through our recommended bi-annual followups.

The unique “identity” component of our assessment also gives you a bird’s eye view of where your parishioners are at in their personal spiritual lives. 


Those that need growth in this area so often do not even know what do to move forward, and may not even recognize that a deeper, more trusting relationship with God is even possible for them. 

People at the other end of the spectrum, with very high identity quotients, are intimate friends of God and can so often mentor or lead others into greater relationship with Him. 

Knowing who falls where empowers parishes to create programs, events, small groups, and mentorship programs aimed at helping everyone in the parish come to encounter Jesus more fruitfully in their everyday lives and use the power of personal invitation to reach out to the people that need guidance the most.

Every other resource in our parish program is about leveraging this discernment and commitment process to its fullest extent - supporting individuals in fruitful, personal discernment and crafting communication and strategy at the parish level that makes use of the assessment data and creates a unifying parish culture of charisms.
