The Workmatters Institute is a faith and leadership development program for early-career professionals interested in integrating their faith and work. Regardless of industry or sphere, embracing the whole story of God is the key to conquering the practical challenges of growing a career and growing leaders who have eternal impact on the world.
Through three months of weekly classroom training and a year of mentoring provided by an executive leader, the Workmatters Institute provides a unique discipleship and career development experience based on biblical principles. At the intersection of theology, leadership and community, it is 100% spiritual formation and 100% professional development.
Past participants have gone on to create design concepts that empower those who lack privilege, drive initiatives that support the local community, and lead startups built on workplace authenticity.
The Workmatters Institute brings clarity to the purpose of work, and the personal and professional development is mind-boggling. You can never approach your work the same.
Calling Is Intentional
Uncertain about his calling and where God wanted him to be, Nic Taylor spent most of his time as a senior art director at Walmart speeding from one task to the next. Nic took what he learned at the Workmatters Institute and began having “lunch on purpose” with individual coworkers. His intentionality around work and with those he leads helped him realize that God was at work around him all along. This has created lasting impact on his team and how he leads.
Leaders and Mentors
Workmatters Institute draws from a large network of experienced, high-caliber leaders, like Elise Mitchell, Donnie Smith, Shelley Simpson, and Sean Womack, to offer insight through the coursework and teaching and one-to-one mentoring and discipleship.
