Recently, Catholic Leadership Institute CEO, Dan Cellucci, was featured on the “Advancing Our Church" podcast. In this conversation, Dan shares insights on bringing people back to the Church, how Disciple Maker Index survey results have changed before/during/after the pandemic (spoiler alert: they haven’t), why offertories are rising in some parishes, surfing the wave of change in our Church, and much more.

But here is one unique thing you will find in this podcast that maybe you haven’t heard before:

The story of how our Founder, Tim Flanagan, heard the call to establish Catholic Leadership Institute.

Early into this podcast, Dan sheds a little light upon Tim’s journey. Hint: it involves a St. Paul-like fall from a horse!

Watch below to listen to Dan and learn how that fall evolved into 30 years of service to the Church thanks to one man’s vision, thousands of dedicated Church leaders, and the philanthropic support of so many.
