Workmatters Conference goes beyond the typical conference where you sit and listen to speaker after speaker all day long with little chance to process what you hear or get to know other believers in the marketplace. We know that real transformation happens when you connect with others and apply it to your life. We’ve designed this event to help you develop a community of marketplace believers, learn new insights that will reframe how you view your work, and engage in thought-provoking discussions with other Christians in the workplace. This year, we are bringing you an incredible and diverse lineup of faith-driven speakers from across many different industries who have had years of experience in the marketplace and have dealt with challenges and tough issues much like the ones you encounter at work as a Christian in the marketplace. You will be equipped to know how to impact and redefine today’s workplace with your faith so you can walk in the calling God has created you for!

Our world is changing faster than ever before and it’s no surprise that our workplace culture is changing with it. Businesses are experiencing new challenges, technology is changing the game, new industries are emerging, and with that comes a lot of uncertainty. In the world’s most challenging hour, it’s time for career-minded Christians to stand up and lead the transformation in the marketplace. Never before have we had a more exciting time to lead the way and redefine the way we work.
