The SENT Ventures team spent a year researching the lives of over 50 Church renewal leaders such as St. Benedict, St. Francis, St. Ignatius, St. John Bosco, Dorothy Day, Chiara Lubich, and others. Here, SENT identified common characteristics of these “Entrepreneurs of the Spirit”—leaders who developed innovative approaches to address the human and spiritual needs of their time and place. Through their radical adherence to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, they became entrepreneurs for Christ and His Church.
These innovative leaders are not just relics of the past but are also present in the world today. By supporting today’s Entrepreneurs of the Spirit, SENT provides the business insight, community support, peer-to-peer mentorship, and spiritual grounding for innovative ventures to succeed and revitalize the 21st century Church.
