Why Join Us ?

Our world is starving for leaders.
Jesus Christ died to raise up saints for the Father.
What would happen if all saints dared to lead?
What would happen if you did?

DO YOU DARE?

Matthew 4:19 “And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him..”

GREAT DESIRES

require

SOLID FOUNDATIONS

We know you have desires, but desire is not enough. Leading as a Catholic in the first world requires vision, daring and grit—uncommon in even the secular world. All leaders need solid foundations—doorways into a career capable of sustaining their family for a lifetime. Briefly put, spiritual vessels need worldly sails to catch the wind.

Study for Your
Masters Degree

Enroll in the university of your choice and study for the masters degree in any subject you choose. SJLI will provide the leadership formation, community and spiritual support.

Launch Your
Venture

With a personal leadership advisor and group of subject experts to guide you, learn how to develop an actionable business plan, create a network of support, and be ready to launch your business or ministry upon graduation.

Or

But why me ?

do I really have what it takes to lead?

Exodus 4:10 “Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.”

Any leader who faces their fears

is sure to overcome them

No matter where we struggle, our biggest problem is not the threats we face from the world outside of us, but instead, they come from the world within us. Winning the inner battle is the key to overcoming all the obstacles. Name your inner battle and there you will find the path God has marked out for you.

Fatalism

It does not matter what I think. It does not matter how I feel. People are going to tell me what to do and how to live. I have no real say in it anyhow.

Fear & Fatigue

I am tired of trying and failing. No matter what I do, it does not make a difference. I am bound to fail.
Why even try?

FOG

There are so many paths I could take. How do I know which is the right one? I wish I knew what I was supposed to do! How am I supposed to make a decision, when I don’t know which way to go?

Forlorn

No one really cares what I do anyway. I try and try, but people will do what they want to do. I can think what I want, but it does not matter. No one else seems to mind. I may as well give up.

INNER BATTLES

There is Hope

Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

There is a way.

Our Method

Aspire · Understand · Drive · Engage Others

At SJLI, we believe that no one can teach us leadership better than God. Drawing from the Bible and the best of Catholic tradition, especially St. Thomas Aquinas, we give our Missionary Innovators a leadership formation that will equip them to lead their families, their workspace, and their culture with the courage and insight of the Gospel.

Time to Deepen
Your Faith

From a daily Holy Hour to seminars on the theology of the New Evangelization, every Missionary Innovator is equipped with over 150 hours of classes in Theology while living in a daily schedule of prayer.

Invest in
Your Future

Every Missionary Innovator takes four electives per semester, aimed at rounding out their master's degree studies or business plan with the professional skills needed to assume a position of leadership in our modern world.

Unique Cultural
Experience

From two retreats per year to the vibrant cultural opportunities afforded by our location in Denver, opportunities abound for our Missionary Innovators to grow in deep ways. Together with the other members of their community, they can hike the nearby mountains, join their peers in the city, and engage in all that our unique environment offers.

Authentic Catholic
Leadership

Our Missionary Innovators receive the deepest level of formation offered in Catholic leadership. Nearly every week, they receive specific, practical instruction in our method for bringing the Gospel’s power to bear in our world today. Coupled with real world experiences in leadership, AUDEO™ helps each Missionary Innovator to give their very best to the world.

More Than a
Mentor

Either by a person of their own choosing or a professional from SJLI’s extensive network, every Missionary Innovator is accompanied by a leadership advisor who serves as a sounding board and support through the trials and travails of choosing a career path or launching a new venture.

The Strength
Behind You

Drawing from the professional experience of over 1,800 members of the Saint John Leadership Network, each Missionary Innovator is given the opportunity to create their own small circle of subject matter experts, able to give advice or open doors and opportunities as they take their next steps.

Greatness Awaits

Follow the Call

We recognize that knowing your next steps is not easy. We are here to help you. But if you know God has made you to dare great things, why make Him wait? Sometimes, walking on water means you have to get out of the boat.

Take the next step.
