Possibility Productions, a 501(c)(3)
Public Charity, is a faith event evangelization apostolate in
service of the Body of Christ.
Beginning in 2000, as the volunteer
Steward of St. Patrick’s Faith Event Ministry, Brian produced,
promoted and executed exceptional faith-based conferences, concerts
and speaking events for his local parish and the greater Central
Patrick’s Event Ministry is actually the tiny seed from
which Possibility Productions has grown.
Our mission, in the spirit of the New Evangelization, is to produce
dynamic Christian events that awaken and unite the community,
nurture individual hearts, and spiritually strengthen the family
– the domestic church – so we may be vibrant witnesses
of the love of Christ and the richness of our Catholic Christian
faith in everyday life.
We Do It
as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts
form one body, so it is with Christ." - 1 Corinthians 12:12
it is with Possibility Productions as a faith event evangelization
apostolate in service to the Body of Christ. We are functionally
structured in reliance on the commitment of a strong volunteer
partnership with the members of the community or church that we
serve to successfully plan, market and run events of the highest
quality. Here at Possibility Productions, we partner with you
from conception to fruition. We succeed through reciprocity -
our natural willingness to exchange our gifts with each other
for the mutual benefit of both.
