Revive Parishes

Revive Parishes

Revive Parishes was founded with a singular goal: to transform parish leaders so that they can revive their parishes. This may sound simple, but it is certainly not easy — and this is where the Holy Spirit comes in. With God’s help, your hard work and perseverance, and a little help and coaching from those who have gone before you… anything is possible. Welcome to Revive Parishes!

Founded by Dan Rogers, Edmundo Reyes, Tim Glemkoswki, and John Martin, Revive Parishes is now a proud offering of the Augustine Institute and is presented 100% free of charge for the benefit of the Church. In the coming years, this resource will continue to grow under this stewardship, and parishes around the world will continue to benefit from this incredible resource.

Each course on Revive was created with you in mind: to give you practical tips, suggestions, inspiration, and coaching on the most important issues facing Catholic parishes today. FORMED is proud to host a few of the lessons and courses on this platform for your viewing. To find all 18+ courses and lessons, go to
