Our Full Vision
We love helping Christians find joy and purpose in their work as they participate in God’s redemptive mission. Whether you’re a business executive or a barista, a scholar or a student, a pastor or a layman, what you do matters to God. And how you do it can bring a spark of hope to a dark world.
You have a job to do.
Many Christians today desire a deeper, more integrated approach to serving God in their work. Their work is disconnected from their faith, and they are unfulfilled and frustrated with their jobs.
Most of all, many in the church fear their daily work doesn’t matter to God. They believe that in order for the work to matter, they’ll have to quit their “secular” job and go into “full-time ministry.”
Nothing could be further from the truth. God’s plan for our lives and his design for our work are so much bigger than that.
Our vision is a free society characterized by greater creativity and increased human flourishing.
Our work is just one way we carry out God’s command given in Genesis 1:28 to "be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it." The command is God’s call to whole-life stewardship. As we pour our time, talents, and energies into carrying out this biblical call, we bring about flourishing. We bring glimpses of hope to a dark world.
In addition, we benefit from the joy and delight it brings not just to us and our neighbors, but to the thousands of anonymous strangers we can serve by using our gifts and talents to the best of our abilities.
Ultimately, stewardship requires freedom, an understanding of economic principles, and an environment that promotes our God-given creativity and purpose.
Your journey starts here.
The Institute for Faith, Work & Economics was founded in 2011 to help Christians find fulfillment in their work and contribute to a free and flourishing society. We provide practical resources that offer biblical encouragement and guidance to your walk with God.
All of what we do starts with the belief that the Bible is the chief authority and guide for all our lives. As an educational group, we provide opportunities to learn and apply these biblical and economic principles in your everyday life.
Through our blogs, videos, campus programs, small group studies, social media, and online learning, we pray you understand the incredible meaning and impact of your work.
