Episode #71–“The Perfection of Imperfection”–1 on 1 Conversation with Doug Tooke, OSV Innovation Talk Speaker

This Say Yes to Holiness podcast episode finds Christina spending time in conversation with Doug Tooke of ODB Films. Doug also is a recent OSV Innovation Talk speaker.

His talk is entitled, The Perfection of Imperfection, and in a very emotional and entertaining way, Doug discusses the pitfalls of perfectionism and how we can learn to be “a candid polaroid in a photoshop world.”

Doug Tooke, OSV Innovation Talk Speaker

Doug is also the Vice President of Mission for both ODB Films and the Renovo Media Group. With Bachelor of Arts degrees in both Philosophy and Theology and a Masters in Pastoral Ministry he has over twenty-five years of professional ministry experience. He has traveled to over 100 Diocese in the past 25 years teaching, keynoting conventions, and training ministers, and is a recipient of the National Catholic Youth Ministry Award from the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry. Doug currently lives in Helena, Montana with his wife Becky and their five daughters.

Our conversation was far-ranging as we not only delved deeper into Doug’s OSV talk, but also spoke of his key role in bringing the OSV Innovation Talks initiative to life; the state of engagement and participation within the life of the Church, especially by youth and young adults; the potential partnership that can happen between media and ministry; and the extremely hopeful future for the Church emerging within lay apostolates that are “moving with Christ.”
