NYC ministry leaders


9 months


Providing ongoing training & community among urban ministers

the training

The 2017-2018 City Lab series invites ministry leaders and pastors to explore the intersection of faith and work, particularly in leading their congregations. In partnership with the Center for Faith and Work, we aim to equip pastors and key leaders from their congregations with the framework and tools necessary to create a faith and work movement that weaves together robust theology and spiritual formation in community.


Five SEQUENTIAL sessions

The five sessions in the 2017-2018 City Lab series build upon each other to move participants from vision to implementation:



why faith & work?


understanding our redemptive historical context


towards a theology of faith & work


the critical importance of imagination


the need for spiritual discernment


the program

There are three essential components to the City Lab:

learning sessions

Dr. Tim Keller and David H. Kim (Executive Director, CFW), along with guest speakers and panelists, teach to expand a vision for faith and work over the course of five sessions.

practical resources

Participants are provided with practical guidelines, spiritual formation practices, and hands-on exercises to integrate new learnings into practice.

interactive discussion

Participants take part in discussions with peers from across the city.
