The Marketplace Ministry exists to help Christian businesspeople in organizations of any size to thrive spiritually, personally and in their place of business. We want to equip and empower business professionals to use their God-given gifts and abilities to help build companies that are built on the foundation of God's Kingdom principles.
Marketplace Ministry Forums
Our Marketplace Ministry Forums feature a presentation by a notable business leader on what it means to thrive in the workplace as a follower of Christ. They are designed to connect business people within the church as well as to train and inspire participants to excel in the workplace. Following the presentation, there will be time for small group discussion and networking for attendees.
Next Forum: April 14th at 10:30am
