The Center for Faith and Enterprise was launched in 2009 by Rob Tribken (information on left panel) and a group of like minded California entrepreneurs who wanted to find better ways to help people in business and related fields connect their faith and their work. In today’s economic and social environment, we believe it is especially important to affirm the importance of work and enterprise from a religious or spiritual perspective and to recognize the ways that faith and spirituality can support and inform everyday work.
As our work has progressed, we have come to believe that many people have a deep, intuitive faith or spirituality that, while sometimes unconscious or latent, can be quite powerful and life giving. Our mission is to find ways to tap into this deep resource and allow it to inform and support our daiy work.
In support of this the Center intends to:
- Help people in business and other professions see their work as an important calling that can promote human well being, with all this means for the sense of purpose, effectiveness, and fulfillment with which they work.
- Help people find ways for their faith and spirituality to support and inform their work, through such as Spiritual Practices for the Active Work Life Retreats in order to help them work with a greater sense of purpose, fulfillment, and effectiveness.
- Provide ways for people to deal with stress and other apsects of the dark side of work.
- Provide programs and material that churches and other religious organizations can use to minister to the vocational aspects of people's lives.
