Event Description

How we see and experience the gospel changes everything, including our everyday work. Not only is work important to the life of Christians, but it is vital for the life of the church as we send our congregations out into every part of our local communities, workplaces, and cultures. Join our featured guest, Katherine Leary Aldorf, and fellow pastors and peers for this interactive and practical exploration of faith as integral to work and vocation.

The event features plenary and workshop sessions with Katherine Leary Alsdorf, founder and Director Emeritus of the Redeemer Presbyterian Church’s Center for Faith & Work in New York City. Katherine also assisted Tim Keller in the writing of Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God’s Work.

Other speakers include:

  • Nathan Miller, Twin Cities Regional Coordinator with the Made to Flourish Pastors' Network
  • Bryan Bademan, Executive Director of MacLaurinCSF
