In the Institute, governance is comprised of the following
- A Director General and his Council for the entire Institute
- A District Director and his Council for each District
- A District Formation Director and formation team
- A Team Facilitator for each local Team
In the Institute, the function of authority is the same as in all forms of consecrated life where members are bound to their leaders by the vow of obedience. Those in positions of authority in the Institute are first servants of the Will of God - they are the Church's representatives among their brethren. Their authority is one of service and their purpose is to foster a climate of confidence and collaboration among everyone.
