All of our events & partner events are open to anyone and provide a welcoming setting to join others in exploring faith and work connections.

Past Event: Making Your Mark Through Your Work

Wednesday, September 28

5:30 – 7:00pm

@ Sweetwater (Conference Hall 2)

Each of us desire to be seen and to have our daily work count for something significant. Yet, our actual experience is often something less than this.


Join us along with Jeff Ostermann, President of NEICFW, to learn how to find more purpose in your current work and to learn how your impact can be deeper than what you realize.



Past Event: Toward a Deeper Understanding of Vocation

Thursday, July 21

7:00 – 8:00am

@ Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 

917 West Jefferson Blvd

Discussions on vocation go back centuries and have been helpful to many in providing a framework for understanding how to prioritize and shape their approach to work and life.


Join us along with Rev. Thomas Eggold, Senior Pastor of Emmanuel Lutheran Church, to learn more about how a deeper understanding of vocation can reshape your approach to your day to day work.


Past Event: Global Lessons on the Social & Spiritual Impact of Work

Tuesday, May 24

5:30pm – 7:00pm 

@ Sweetwater (Conference Hall 1)

The importance of our daily work isn’t a subject of conversation that is unique to our region. Individuals around the world find themselves looking for purpose and meaning in their day-to-day just like those of us in Northeast Indiana.


Join us along with Matthew Rohrs, CEO of Sinapis, to gain a more global perspective on the importance of work and its social and spiritual impact.


Past Event: The Redemptive Potential of Everyday Work

Wednesday, March 23

5:30pm – 7:00pm 

@ Utopian Coffee + Kitchen (118 W Columbia St) 

God’s redemptive work is gloriously large. It includes the rescue of individuals but also extends out to the redemption of every aspect of his creation – including the environments and systems we find ourselves in each day. The work you’re doing right now already has redemptive opportunities baked into it but sometimes we need to shift our perspective to recognize them for what they are.


If you’re interested in discovering what this looks like for you, you’re not alone! Join us, with teaching by Pastor Wallace Butts from Love Church Ministries.


Past Event: Study Group - The Calling of Faith & Work

Tuesday, February 15 – Tuesday, March 22 (6 weekly sessions) 

6:30pm – 8:00pm 

@ Sweetwater (Crescendo Cafe)

Join NEI CFW Board Member Sally Stitzer for this 6-week small group study about The Calling of Faith and Work.


Hosted every Tuesday for 6 weeks, you’ll have the opportunity to dive deeper into God’s intentions for our work and callings. You’ll also be able to explore how a more holistic view of our callings can enable us to find more meaning and purpose in our daily work.


Past Event: New Year, Renewed Vision for Work

Tuesday, January 25

5:30pm – 7:00pm 

@ Sweetwater (Conference Hall 1)

A new year often brings about new beginnings – and for many of us that that includes reflections about work. Am I doing what I should? How can I do better? How do I stay more focused on God in the midst of my busy daily routine? Does God want me to make changes? How do I better understand what God is doing in and through my work? 


If you’re asking questions like these, you’re not alone! Join us, with teaching by Pastor Ron Williams from Pathway Community Church, to learn more about how you can approach 2022 with a refreshed perspective on your work.
