Where it all started...

The origins of the Saint John Institute date back to 2003 when Eagle Eye Ministries held its first retreat. Today, SJI is a thriving leadership institute, consisting of three different ministriesThrough Eagle Eye Ministries, we Inspire young adults. Through the Saint John Leadership Institute, we Equip leaders in Colorado with our programs, and through the Saint John Leadership Network, we Engage Others throughout the US with events and programs for families and professional leaders to impact the culture.

When we founded the SJLN in 2018, it was with the intention of giving business professionals and owners the very best support, teaching and encouragement that the Catholic faith could offer. 

Today we have grown to be a network of Catholics from both the professional world and families as we provide retreats and instruction for the family and the workplace. Our network consists of adults of all ages and all stages in life, including professionals, parents, and grandparents. With SJI’s recently renovated campus in Englewood, our classroom is ready to host more local programming.  Will you dare to join us?

Why the flame?

The secret to leadership is fire. Just as fire ignites and transforms everything it touches, a leader can spark change in their environment. When a leader steps into their role first ignited by God, they set in motion a series of events that can alter the course of an organization, a community, or even an entire society. Leadership comes from God. The passion of a leader comes from within as God breathes life into their leadership journey, fueling their burning desire to make a difference. The Saint John Insitute’s logo shows a big flame and within it a smaller flame, this is because our ministry exists to give birth to fire. By nurturing and multiplying these smaller flames, our ministry aims to start thousands more, spreading the fire of saintly leadership.
