What if the most exceptional emerging Christian leaders could be equipped with the best ideas of human civilization?

What if they could be given the courage and character to stand where so many other leaders fall? What if the books and music they wrote, the organizations they built, and the laws they passed were marked by a breathtaking imagination and yet a grounded prudence? What if they could be guided into career paths that unleashed every ounce of their potential?

And what if they all knew each other?

This is the reality the John Jay Institute exists to build: the future of American leadership. We are creating a network—600 strong and growing—of culture-shapers in every area of our society. Arts, literature, faith, politics, and more. Our alumni aren’t built for a moment’s fame on YouTube, or a small political victory that is quickly forgotten. They are built to be a powerful force for justice and prosperity for their generation and beyond.
