You spend half of your life at work. You want that time to matter. But the workplace is a tough place to live your faith. You may experience a conflict between your faith-me and your work-me, unsure where to find answers.

We understand—we’ve been there. And we've discovered that all of the answers we need can be found in the Bible.

That’s why we’ve designed Workmatters Studies to help you grow in your leadership at work based on biblical principles. Facilitating a study is easy and allows you to learn not only from leaders in the Bible, but from each other.

Thousands of people in companies both large and small across the U.S. have participated in Workmatters Studies and have discovered a renewed sense of passion for their work.

When you discover God’s purpose for your work, it fills your work with meaning. And when your work has meaning, it can transform your life.

Your work matters!

Who facilitates Workmatters Studies?

Ideally, each Workmatters Study has two facilitators – one experienced professional (35+) and one young professional (under 35). Although that is not a requirement. Anyone who feels called to facilitate can do so – you don’t have to have experience leading Bible studies. We provide resources and support to equip facilitators for success.

What do I need to do to be trained to facilitate a study?

We provide facilitator guides, tips and resource documents on our website that can be viewed online or downloaded and printed. If you need more, we are always happy to talk or meet (NWA) with you.

What curriculum is used?

Workmatters has a team of curriculum writers and designers who develop each study we produce. These writers also have many years of marketplace experience. They are also deeply knowledgeable and well-versed in Scripture and supplement their knowledge with research using Bible study tools and commentaries. This team brings their knowledge and experience together to produce studies that are highly relevant to today’s workplace environments. We’ve seen remarkable results from those who have gone through a study. This short video is just a sampling of what thousands of leaders have experienced. Imagine the impact these leaders will have in the marketplace!
