Workmatters Forum
Courageous Leadership

A stylized lantern


Workmatters FORUM brings together a community of 1000+ career-minded Christians that you can connect with both professionally and spiritually! This event is designed to encourage, equip, and connect marketplace believers across all ages, industries, and management levels. Too many Christians feel alone, confused, and even discouraged in today’s workplace. Our desire is that you will realize you are not alone in the marketplace and that you discover the purpose God has for you right where you are at work. You were born for such a time as this to fulfill your God-given calling and walk in courageous leadership.

Workmatters FORUM goes beyond the typical conference where you sit and listen all day. 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 lasting relationships, learn new insights, and engage in discussions with other marketplace believers. This year, we are bringing you an incredible and diverse lineup of faith-driven speakers from across the world who have years of experience in the marketplace, and have dealt with challenges and tough issues much like the ones you encounter day in and day out. You will be equipped to know how to impact today’s workplace with your faith. God has called you to be a courageous leader in this time in history. Our desire is that you will be empowered to be a light in the darkness — to stand up, to step out, to rise up, to lead with courage.
