Believers in Business 2017
Dates: Friday, April 7–Saturday, April 8
Join DCF for the largest annual Christian MBA conference where young professionals from across the country connect and explore the opportunities, challenges, and strategies for following Christ in the marketplace. This year's conference theme is "A Higher Calling: Becoming Kingdom-Minded Leaders." We delve into a theology of work and a deeper understanding of how our faith informs our careers. We will hear from Christian business leaders what it means to live out our faith in the workplace, meet with industry panelists, and fellowship and network with over 200 fellow business school students and like-minded leaders!
“Darden Christian Fellowship has been a tremendous blessing over the course of the last two years. As an incoming Darden student, I hoped to find Christian community at school, but wasn’t sure what it would look like or how God might use it. DCF, through its partnership with the Study Center, provided countless opportunities to grow in my faith. From hearing different speakers share about their faith in the workplace to participating in a service-learning trip to Nicaragua, I was constantly reminded of how God uses all things for His good.”
