VP of Development



Why I Love This Opportunity

The VP of Development has an amazing opportunity to contribute to the overall growth and reputation of Workmatters at the intersection of faith and work from a marketplace perspective. Workmatters is uniquely positioned as one of the few faith and work organizations across the US offering practical and actionable resources for Executive leaders and their teams. The primary focus of this Development opportunity is championing the belief that God has uniquely created each person to make an impact in their work.

About This Organization

For almost 20 years, Workmatters has been walking with Christians in every corner of the marketplace as they close the gap between their faith and work.

The Workmatters team is a group of professionals and practitioners. They come from various backgrounds in business, retail, design, marketing, entertainment, government, education, and nonprofits. And what they all have in common is experience integrating their faith and work—a deep desire to uncover deep meaning and recapture God’s intended purpose for work not just for themselves, but for others.

Today, Workmatters is passionate about encouraging and resourcing people at the intersection of work and faith through the Workmatters Institute, the annual Workmatters conference, one-on-one relationships, and on-demand resources. They have equipped over 1 million Christian leaders who want to integrate their faith and work across northwest Arkansas, the US, and the world. And they are working hard towards their vision to transform the workplace by equipping Christian leaders to integrate their faith and work.
