Our Vision

Revolutionizing the way people think about work

Do you connect worship on Sunday with work on Monday? Many Christians don’t.

They don’t know their work is significant to God and that every workplace is a strategic place for serving Him. God values all kinds of work and those who do it.

LeTourneau University established the Center for Faith & Work to revolutionize the way Christians think about work and to help them experience Christ’s transforming presence and power in every workplace in every nation.
