Granite City, IL

The Exodus Effective Leader Summit was created to serve Exodus men across the world, helping them to become more effective fraternity leaders. When men become better leaders, our communities change. This event will make you a better fraternity leader.

Who can come to the training? Any man, whether you’ve done Exodus 90 or not. If you are ready to impact the men of your community and are willing to put in the work to become an effective leader for your fraternity, you are exactly who should come!

The Four Main Things

Fix Yourself

The best way to get other men in your community to live differently is to first live differently yourself. In this session, Nathaniel Binversie will cover three aspects of the Christian life that you are very familiar with—prayer, asceticism, and fraternity—and why and how we should be living these out, not just for 90 days a year, but every day of our lives, for the rest of our lives. Don’t be too daunted; we’re not suggesting you do Exodus 90, 365.

Speaker: Nathaniel Binversie

Fishers of Men

“Every one to whom much is given, of him will much be required” (Luke 12:48). By virtue of our baptism, all of us have been given far more than we may even know. What are you doing to live out your baptismal priesthood? It’s time to use what we’ve been given in a way that actually meets or exceeds what is required of us.

Speaker: Mark Pica

Practicals of Fraternities

What does fraternity life look like? How can a leader have a more profound impact on the men in his fraternity? What do I need to know about leading a fraternity that I don’t know I don’t know? Nathaniel will answer these questions and more during this session on the practicals of leading a fraternity.

Speaker: Nathaniel Binversie

Exodus and the Parish

What kind of relationship should you have with the men you are leading? Can it be a distant relationship or does it need to be personal and invested? What about with your pastor—does he need to be involved, and if so, to what extent? In this talk, a pastor will share his insights into what it looks like to truly shepherd the men of your parish as they work to lead other men as well.

Speaker: Fr. Jonathan Meyer, Archdiocese of Indianapolis
