Program Overview

Lifework  is a eight-month program that brings together individuals in search of a way to connect God’s work with their own career journeys. Our community of leaders crosses vocational, denominational, racial, and cultural lines, with a common goal of bringing renewed purpose to our careers and a deeper relationship with our faith.

Each course is Biblically-based and centered on a core value, combining scriptural teachings, case studies, and practical tools that can be readily applied to your professional role. 

Tuition: $3,600
