Thanks for signing up!

We’re kicking the Business Leadership Series for 2016 up a notch.

The first 150 people who register for the quarterly luncheon series will go on a journey of discovery and examine how faith and work play out both individually and as a community. There will be ample opportunity to build community among like-minded businessmen and women while expanding your business network. Each luncheon will be facilitated by experienced executives who have already traveled down this road and together we will examine both the spiritual and practical aspects of work.

This will definitely be something you will not want to miss!

Here’s the details:

What it is: Quarterly facilitated luncheons with in-depth peer-to-peer learning and round table discussions that will explore what the Kingdom of God looks like in the marketplace.

Content: Topics will focus on aspects of discovering who God made you to be (strengths, motivations and spiritual gifts) and understanding how that impacts or shapes the role you play in your organization—and your company.

Tactics: Each topic will be introduced by a prominent marketplace leader. Round table discussions will be led by successful, spiritually mature marketplace leaders. Table conversation will be facilitated by 3 questions related to the topic of focus. Pre-work will be assigned (reading or taking assessments), so that table conversation can capitalize on the application of information, not the digestion of information.

Resources: In between lunches, we will provide monthly resources that support or inform the pre-work assignments. This can be done via short videos provided by table facilitators and our published resources from faith & work specialists like the Institute of Faith, Work & Economics, Seattle Pacific University, and/or the Center for Faith & Work.
