The Table Conference: Los Angeles

Work is not a necessary evil. It is a holy pursuit. Join us for a dynamic two-day conference learning how to be an agent of worship and ministry in your place of work.

Your Work: More than a Paycheck

Humanity, being in the image of God, is meant to be creative and manage our world. Yet it often seems that our daily responsibilities either become a god themselves or just serve as a distraction from serving the Lord. Work is not a product of the curse; rather it is a sacred call from God Himself!
