Save the Date! “Women, Work, & Calling” Returns October 13th

Joanna Meyer

Innovators, nurturers, risk-takers, leaders, and life-givers—all roles filled by women in Scripture. Each played a critical part in God’s story, a story that continues to flow through Colorado women today.

In this season of marches and #metoo, women demand the respect and recognition that is their due. Yet in our quest to be regarded as equals, have we lost our vision for what makes us unique?

Do Christian women have a distinct role to play in shaping and restoring our world?

Join Denver Institute for Faith & Work for “Women, Work & Calling” a half-day event exploring the feminine value we add to our workplaces, homes, and communities. Whether you spend your days in a boardroom, kitchen, or classroom, this gathering will inspire and equip you to exert godly influence in your corner of the world.
