Activities of the NFWA

While the primary objective of this network is seeing the sum of organizations and their members in the workplace/marketplace grow in number and influence as winsome followers of Jesus, there are specific projects/collaborations that may be worthy activities toward this end, including to:

  • Develop an association website with items such as a directory of members, calendar, resources, etc
  • Help cultivate collaboration among leaders in the Faith & Work field, including an annual gathering of leaders
  • Support and promote a Faith and Work Summit intended for both the national leaders and other interested parties as a larger event that meets less often than the annual gathering of leaders
  • Develop, discover, and support city networks and other local/regional Faith & Work networks
  • Encourage increased collaborative prayer among Faith & Work leaders
  • Stimulate, steward, and create awareness of active and potential initiatives/collaborations (such as research/shared learning about the culture and context in which we are ministering)
  • Relate to groups/networks outside the immediate Faith & Work space
  • Relate to global Faith & Work networks (serving as a US representative network where appropriate)

  • Marketplace/workplace ministry organizations, centers, programs, and publications
