ABOUT DENVER INSTITUTE FOR FAITH & WORK
Denver Institute for Faith & Work is a Christian, educational nonprofit based in Denver, Colorado. It was launched in late 2012 for two main reasons. First, Christians spend the majority of their waking hours at work, yet many struggle to integrate the two worlds of faith and work. Though God calls most believers to secular work, many are mired in the sacred/secular divide or isolated from other believers in their field. Still others believe that faith is exclusively a private affair that has little to do with the worlds of technology, business, education – where we work. Yet we believe the gospel touches all areas of human life, and that God is reconciling all things to himself (Col. 1:15), including both our private world and our public life.
Second, we’re living in a cultural moment that desperately needs the gospel applied to areas of public life. Strategies to influence culture in the past 50 years have been too heavily focused on seeking political power. We believe a better strategy to influence public life is through work. Work is where we both “live in public” and where we do our “culture-making.”
