Discipleship & Leadership Development Mission Team

The Discipleship & Leadership Development Mission Team seeks to form disciples and missionary leaders across the diocese with an infectious, missionary zeal that will win souls for Jesus Christ. At the heart of our call to become disciples is to:

  • Grow in relationship with Jesus - Discover Jesus
  • Learn from Him - Follow Jesus
  • Deepen our love for his body, the Catholic Church - Worship Jesus
  • Take that love out into the world to share it with others - Share Jesus

This team will provide for the growth of all leaders in spiritual maturity through an introduction to the great spiritual treasury of the Church. It will identify, train and inspire missionary leaders who form disciples and missionary leaders of others.

As part of the Discipleship and Leadership Formation Mission Team, the Office of Clergy and Pastoral Leaders helps form leaders of parishes to love Jesus and share Him with others. We provide experiences to teach leadership and encounter God. In this way, leaders of parishes grow closer to Jesus and the people of God. And through communication like this website, priests, deacons and pastoral leaders become more accountable to Him and their people. 

The Office of Vocations is responsible for the promotion of discovering God's particular call for disciples in the Diocese of Green Bay. Of the four particular vocations, the emphasis for this Office is on priestly vocations and providing pastors for our parishes. The Vocation Director and his team helps bring awareness to the call to the priesthood within the Diocese as well as working the seminarians in formation to become priests.
