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.

For the 2015-2016 school year, we have Co-Labor events planned for the following locations: Seattle, WA, Portland, OR,  Sacramento, CA,  San Jose, CA, San Diego, CA and Charlotte, NC. Additional details will be posted as the events approach.


Coming Spring 2016. Additional information will be available Fall 2015.
