About

WHAT IS SALI?

The St. Andrew’s Leadership Institute is a 9-month living and learning community based in Newport Beach, CA, designed to broaden your understanding of and deepen your connection to God’s redemptive work.  The SALI program applies theological education, leadership development, and spiritual formation to the context of work and relationships. As a member of the SALI class, you will join up to eight post-grads from diverse backgrounds who will live alongside and learn from an intergenerational church community. 

The SALI Leadership Team and Advisory Board is full of qualified individuals devoted to helping you work, live, and grow in the glory of God. Led by Executive Director Dana Leota, the team has carefully crafted the program we now know as SALI. Learn more about our team by clicking below:

For those who feel God is calling them to work in ministry, we provide the opportunity to work on campus here at St. Andrew's. For those looking to begin a professions career, we offer the opportunity to work in local offices while simultaneously attending the leadership program. Learn more about each below!
