We believe that work and vocation should be deeply rooted in how we are gifted and who we are as followers of Jesus. All followers of Jesus serve his Kingdom, whether that happens through architecture, retail, serving coffee, or working with a church. Every day we benefit from innumerable contributions from both staff members and servants across a wide spectrum of fields. In all that we do, we strive for excellence, as though we are working for Jesus himself.
