What’s the Faith and Work Collective?

The Faith and Work Collective is a blog community designed to provide resources that encourage leaders to mobilize congregations and communities in the integration of faith with work and economics that witnesses to God’s purposes in word and deed to every society.

Who’s it for?

In a lot of ways, the posts we share here are created to help church leaders to better engage their congregations. In a lot of other ways, the Faith and Work Collective is for any person looking for ways to integrate their Christian faith with the hours they spend each week in a secular work world.
