In October 2019, we opened a new media production studio at our National Center in Colorado. This fully functioning film studio has state of the art equipment and serves three ends. Firstly, our three ministries will record exclusive video content, marketing videos, and video messaging destined for social media to serve our mission of promoting authentic Catholic leadership. Secondly, our Saint John Leadership Institute (SJLI) students will be able to access the studio to develop and promote Catholic leadership messages and pursue their entrepreneurial endeavors. Thirdly, friends aligned in mission with SJI community may utilize the studio to create widespread Christian messages or advance their ministries. Thus, our SJI video production studio will enable evangelizers to disseminate Christian messaging, and formation in community leadership, spiritual leadership, and professional Christian leadership.
