ABOUT VOCA

OUR HISTORY

Every day, 160 million people go to work in the United States and the majority of them claim the name "Christian,” yet only 28% of Christians report living their faith in the context of their work. With this separation of spirituality and work life, the majority of Christians report feelings of disillusionment and burnout and believe unhelpful career myths at rates similar to their non-Christian counterparts. In short, our work is not seen within the larger Biblical story.

This is why VOCA exists. 

VOCA is short for “Vocation.” After seeing the need for Christians to experience more at work, we knew that equipping them to meet and follow God in their work has outsized impact potential not just for individuals, but for their colleagues, workplaces, and culture. 

We are a donor-funded ministry that brings God's wisdom to people's work through teaching, coaching, and leadership development. Based in New York City, we serve thousands of Christians everywhere each year.
