Faith in the Marketplace is designed to help those of us in leadership integrate our faith into the marketplace and see that our vocation is far more than a profession - it's a calling of God. Faith in the Marketplace meets four times a year and features a guest speaker at each session. We begin at 7:00 a.m. with breakfast and adjourn promptly at 8:30 a.m.
CEUs are not available for these events.
