Two years ago, we assembled a unique community of scholars and practitioners from nine vocational sectors—Arts, Business, Clergy, Education, Governance, Law, Medicine, Philanthropy, and Technology—to consider how the cultural conditions of late modernity have shaped their vocations, and what challenges and opportunities for faithful presence exist in each.
This fall, this community will gather again in Brooklyn to articulate, synthesize, and extend their findings, building on the important work that has already been done on the nature and meaning of Christian vocation.
The Christian church in America is struggling to understand what it means to live faithfully in a rapidly changing culture. Our mission is to help churches, ministries, and Christian leaders understand contemporary culture and pursue faithful presence within it.
We combine scholarly knowledge, theological orthodoxy, and institutional experience to create innovative models and materials for leaders seeking to serve the common good in a variety of institutional settings.
Learn. We offer a host of educational resources—including short weekly briefings, substantive articles, educational curricula, and book-length projects—all designed to strengthen institutional leaders to seek the common good in our time. Read along with us.
Invite. We happily send our team members to serve institutional leaders, organizational boards, and larger network gatherings through public presentations or private strategic support. We’d love to visit you.
Partner. We are eager to build collaborative friendships of mutual support with both individuals and institutions seeking to serve the common good. Partner with us.
