Part I: Theological Summary of the New Evangelization

A brief summary is given of the theology of the New Evangelization, the goal of

which is ultimately to lead people to become missionary disciples, so that they will

draw others to Christ and his Church.

Part II: Developing A Pastoral Plan for

Missionary Discipleship

Here are described the elements of a good pastoral plan, organized to support the

four elements of the New Evangelization: “encounter,” “accompany,” “com-

munity,” and “send.” Using these principles will aid in the development of a

pastoral plan focused on forming missionary disciples.

A framework is presented for assessing current pastoral practices in light of the

New Evangelization. Each assessment item concludes with reflection questions

to guide a review of the current parish situation.
