Co-Labor Events

Making Connections

Christian discipleship and sound theology has become disconnected from the largest portion of our lives, our daily work. Co-Labor seeks to restore this vital connection and to support pastors, business leaders, educators and community leaders in their unique and crucial roles by forging mutually supportive partnerships between Kingdom leaders.

Co-Labor events are held twice annually at each of our three campuses. Each event features a speaker who is a marketplace or church leader. The intention of these events is to provide opportunities for business leaders and pastors to meet and dialog about the ways in which they can best support each other.
