About the Center for Faith & Work
We help Christians close the gap between
Sunday worship and Monday work.
Many Christians believe God is only interested in things like prayer, worship and Bible study. They don’t see work as a gift of God, central to His plans and critical for human flourishing.
Separating faith from work produces a less trusting, less productive and less meaningful workplace often dominated by greed, selfishness and destructive values.
In January 2011, LeTourneau University created the Center for Faith and Work to equip, connect and mobilize Christians to live out their faith in the workplace.
Equip: We offer to individuals, churches, students, faculty and the global Christian community opportunities for life-long learning and supportive resources for spiritual formation and gospel impact in the workplace. Venues and initiatives include university classes, public workshops, group studies, online resources, consulting, research and polling, plus workplace devotionals, books and curriculum.
Connect: We orchestrate linking opportunities for Christians in the workplace to find encouragement, prayer and fellowship with other believers. Initiatives include internships, mentoring, online communities, affinity groups, city-wide events and job-search networks.
Mobilize: We provide support, inspiration and resources for gospel-inspired ideas and projects that spread God’s Kingdom influence in every workplace and every nation. Initiatives include international summits, workplace-ministry tools for churches, and entrepreneurship opportunities.

ABOUT LETOURNEAU UNIVERSITY
It all began with one man's commitment to serve Christ in his workplace.
LeTourneau University was founded in 1946, by R.G. LeTourneau, one of the world's great inventors and industrialists of the twentieth century. A devout Christian, he refused to separate his faith from his work, seeing the creation of earthmoving equipment, as well as educating young men and women, as an extension of his faith.
Under the leadership of President Dale Lunsford, LeTourneau University has gained recognition as one of the Top Colleges in America and carries on the university's legacy of preparing graduates to integrate faith and work and take Christ into every workplace, every nation. This commitment prompted President Lunsford and university leaders to establish the Center for Faith and Work as a strategic priority. Learn more about LETU.
Today, LeTourneau University serves more than 20,000 LETU alumni and more than 3,000 students from all 50 states and 20 countries. From its beautiful main campus in Longview, Texas, its online learning center, and five regional education centers, LeTourneau offers degree programs in Engineering, Technology, Liberal Arts, Business, Aeronautical Science, Education and the sciences, plus master's degree programs in Aeronautical Science, Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, Engineering & Engineering Technology.
In 2010, Dr. Lunsford named, William Peel as the Center’s founding Executive Director. Bill is joined in this endeavor by Dr. Tim Watson, who leads church initiatives for the Center.
