As Christians we are directed to share our faith. As business leaders, we have a unique opportunity to integrate our faith into our vocational calling.
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together,...but encourage one another,... Hebrews 10:24-25
Faith at Work connects Christian businesses and nonprofits through prayer, sharing faith stories, and training events for workplace ministry. We partner with several organizations to bring educational opportunities, leadership training, and relationship building with other Christ-centered businesses and organizations. Our popular publication, Inspired Magazine, shares inspirational stories to encourage all of us to live out our faith in our daily lives, both at home and at work.
