Welcome to the Ministry Leadership Center

The Ministry Leadership Center (MLC) has designed and implemented a wide variety of experience-based formation programs for more than 1000 executive leaders and teams. In addition to the professional resident staff, the Center draws upon experts from across the U.S. and Europe.  We work with diverse partners including Catholic, faith-based, and values-based organizations. Our fundamental approach to formation and adult pedagogy is described in our book Tradition on the Move.
