About this conference on faith and work:

How much better would your life would be if you could authentically live your Christian faith every day on the job — if how you thought, felt and acted on Sunday wasn’t that different from your Monday through Friday? Is that even possible? Could you show up energetically, Biblically and creatively every day at work? How could you could fuel and feed your work passion and people by seamlessly living out your faith and values at work?

Whether you are a nurse, a CEO, a small business owner, CPA, sales manager or food server. If you work for a living and are a firm follower of Christ, this non-sectarian event is for you.
