Background:
Since 2003, Stephen D. Christensen, Founder and President, Faith and Work Life, has established a platform for business leaders from all levels to gain practical insight in bridging a pastor’s message on Sunday morning with the business decision-making Monday through Friday. Faith and Work Life is a Newport Beach based non-profit ministry dedicated to help people understand work from God’s perspective and then how to apply Biblical principles to work issues. This mission is accomplished by offering events, monthly luncheons, speakers for church groups, this annual conference and other programs for Christians in the workplace, workplace ministries, and churches. Over 6,000 business people have participated in these activities in Orange County. This conference is a key fund raising activity that supports the ministry.
