Curious about how faith could shape your work?
We believe that vocation is where our greatest passion meets the world’s greatest need. Thus, our cubicles, studios and homes are nothing short of sacred.
The Finance and Faith Forum is a community of finance professionals who gather together to explore the integration of faith, work and economics. During this time, we encourage each other in friendship and share about the real situations many of us are facing in the marketplace. Our vision is to see Christians in financial services excel in their vocation and find ways to bless others through their work. Our goal is to foster meaningful professional and personal relationships among members, strengthen ties between Gordon College and the financial services community, and assist alums and students in their professional pursuits.
We encourage transparency and vulnerability, demonstrating to each other that we are not alone in living a life that is not perfect. There are many people who look happy, successful and fulfilled, while in reality, things are not always as they appear. We strive to create an atmosphere where we can make friends, discuss challenges, and encourage each other.
If this sounds like something you’d like to be a part of—this exploring of work, calling and culture—we hope you’ll join us.
Come hear our speakers share their faith journey and the teachable events in their lives.
