Shaking Hands

2024 Symposium

The Gateway Faith + Work Symposium provides marketplace Christians with professional development, spiritual edification, and fellowship. The goal? To equip God's people to show up well in all areas of life - even the most secular of workplaces.

Professional Development

Equipped for workplace excellence.

"Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ."  

Colossians 3:23-24, ESV

Spiritual Edification

Equipped to faithfully walk the Christian life daily.

"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night." 

Psalm 1:1-2, ESV


Equipped for (and through) community with other Christ-followers.

"Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near."

Hebrews 10:25, ESV
