What is Breaking In The Habit?

Moved by the great joy of the resurrection in our lives, we Christians have been given a mission to “make disciples of all nations,” sharing with our words and lives the great mystery that we know and receive. We live in an ever-growing secular culture in which many children are being raised without a knowledge of Jesus Christ and even more are leaving the Church by their teenage years. What has been passed down for two thousand years—a community of faith bound together by a common experience of the divine to pray, work, and live as a source of strength and a symbol of the heavenly kingdom yet to come—is fading away without serious consideration.

The internet is the new missionary frontier for evangelists. The mission of Breaking In The Habit is to evangelize and catechize in the Franciscan spirit in order to promote faith, energize communities, inspire active involvement, and encourage vocations to consecrated life.

What does this ministry need money for?
  • Updating equipment: Up until now, everything has been produced with entry-level consumer equipment. While this has satisfied the needs of the mission in the past, the rapidly changing landscape of technology will soon render past equipment obsolete. With aspirations of improved image quality and a look to the future, I need to invest in professional equipment, namely, a cinema camera.
  • Hiring staff: For two years, Breaking In The Habit has been entirely run by one person. Conception, writing, directing, performing, filming, editing, and promotion all fell on one person. For the mission to grow, professionals need to be brought in to improve both the quality and quantity of production. With someone to serve as video editor and social media consultant, I will have more time to spend working on developing content, and will be able to produce more than 50 videos in one year.
  • Advertising: Ultimately, the goal of Breaking In The Habit is to spread the Gospel, and so there needs to be a stronger effort to spread its works. For the first time, a significant budget will be allocated to pay for ad time on social media platforms like YouTube and Facebook, as well as Catholic news outlets.
