CTK student leadership is for anyone willing to commit to living as a missionary disciple of Jesus Christ.

Expectations and Commitments of Student Leaders:

  • Strive to live the habits of Acts 2:42 (teachings of the apostles, communal life, Sacraments, and prayer)
  • Strive to be on mission and invest deeply in a few (Matthew 28:18-20)
  • Participate in a campus minister led discipleship group (formerly formation group) or FOCUS discipleship group


  • Spend at least 20 minutes in silent mental prayer each day
  • Abstain from meat or partake in another sacrifice or penance every Friday (precept #4 of the Catholic Church – read more from the USCCB here)

Sacramental Life: 

  • Attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation
  • Receive Reconciliation (Confession) regularly
  • Attend Daily Mass when possible

Teachings of the Apostles:

  • Strive to grow in human, spiritual, intellectual, and apostolic formation

Communal Life:

  • Participation and attendance at CTK Leadership Workshop (August 17 – if you have a conflict, please email Jordan Lane at [email protected])
  • Participation and attendance at Community Nights (4x/semester)
  • Strive to live a life of virtue and moral authority


  • Commitment to your particular apostolate or leadership role
  • Do discipleship the way Jesus did it: invest deeply in a few people
    • Prayerfully consider which of your peers the Lord may be calling you to accompany in their journey of discipleship (often these will be members who you serve/lead in your apostolate)
    • Invite yourself into their lives and insert yourself into theirs through spending time with them

Discipleship Groups:

Going forward, we would like for every student leader to be in a discipleship group. This will either be a discipleship group (formerly formation group) with a campus minister or a FOCUS discipleship group. Campus minister-led discipleship groups are meant to provide a space for greater intentionality and accountability as we seek to accompany each other in our journey of discipleship with Jesus Christ.
