This year's conference provided greater content and an engaging format of discussion and Q&A. Rankin Wilbourne led the day reminding us of the need to integrate our faith and work. Dr.s Art Lindsley and Paul Stevens both provided excellent plenary talks on the theology of work and God's use of our work to shape us. Henry Kaestner and Russell Bjorkman spoke to the impact of Christian led businesses in the tech industry and amazing opportunities God has opened up for influence and flourishing. Local business owners, entrepreneurs and journalists led a panel discussion on God's good work through their vocations. Dr. Francis Su wrapped up the day with a wonderful session about his journey and influence for the Lord through the field of academic mathematics.

Overview of 2017 CFWLA Conference

Here is a small sampling of the positive feedback we received on the event:

"Great hearing appreciation and confirmation of work's value..." "I loved the idea that we can see God's glory through our work..." "Good mix of speakers, interaction, and theology of Sabbath rest..."  "David Kim's teaching, openness, inclusiveness on all vocational areas was excellent..." "Q&A times with David Kim were the most helpful..." “Speakers were wonderful, engaging and easy to follow…” “Format was great – I liked the group breakout sessions & panel discussion…” “Beautiful venue!” 

The broad consensus was that the event was a big winner! Steve Lindsey related his personal story exploring the need to integrate his faith and work followed by an overview of the theology of work. David Kim provided two excellent sessions on the need to see the purpose of the church in a “scattered” vs “gathered” model and explained the “exilic” nature to the context of our lives with Christ. There were engaging panel interviews from our community and group discussion times. The Framework Fellows Program was introduced with a testimony from Gotham Fellows Program alum Angel Lee. Margaret Lindsey provided an overview of CFWLA and its upcoming offerings.
