Our Vision

Church & Marketplace is inspired by a vision of millions of marketplace workers encouraged and equipped by their churches to integrate their faith with their daily work as a crucial element of whole-life discipleship. These churches understand that their ministry happens not just when the church is gathered for worship and mission, but also when it is scattered in the world, including the workplace. Faith/work integration is an essential element of the DNA of these churches, touching every part of church life. This is the result of collaboration among pastors, staff, and members, who dream, plan, and take action together.
