The Vision

The Leadership Institute exists, “to equip the saints for the work of ministry” (Ephesians 4:12). We see a Church with excellent opportunities and resources for intellectual and spiritual growth while at the same time an increasing hunger and need for renewed pastoral and leadership formation.


“The Leadership Institute is engaged in forming the next generation of authentic missionary disciples to bring Jesus Christ to northern Colorado. I hope many Catholics will take advantage of this effort to reinvigorate the Church and bring the Gospel into the world.”

Archbishop Samuel Aquila


The Leadership Institute provides leaders throughout the Archdiocese of Denver with cutting-edge pastoral leadership formation and practical mentoring to help equip and empower them to be “spiritual multipliers” in their sphere of influence within the Church. Through solid training, small group interaction, shared ministry experiences and intentional mentoring, the Leadership Institute enables leaders to go to the next level in their parishes, Catholic schools or apostolates, strengthening both their confidence and competence in ministry.
