The Center for Faith & Work (CFW) is forming three new vocation groups, and relaunching a fourth. New groups will begin meeting soon for those working in the Fashion Industry, in Arts Leadership, and in International Diplomacy. The Dance Industry vocation group will also resume gathering after a year’s hiatus.
Vocation groups are created and led by people working in a particular industry, and are served by the Center for Faith & Work. Groups meet regularly to build relationships with and to support others working in our industry, think biblically about issues specific to our industry, and create opportunities to serve others in our community, industry, and culture.
To receive email updates about any of these new groups, or other CFW Vocation Groups, please visit www.faithandwork.org and sign up!
The Fashion Industry Group is for designers, executives, managers, photographers, models, retailers, journalists, students, and anyone else actively working in the fashion industry. Email [email protected] for more information, and join the email list at www.faithandwork.org to receive more info about an upcoming social event this summer. We’re looking for volunteer leaders to help shape and serve this exciting new group!
Those who work for arts organizations or otherwise lead artists or arts ventures are welcome to join the Arts Leaders vocation group. They will meet monthly for fellowship, discussion, and prayer, and officially launch on Thursday, September 30, at the Redeemer offices.
