Center for Integrity in Business

  • Business

    Business: Through innovative tools, training, and networks, we're building a community where businesspeople and organizations can come for the resources they need to pursue faithful service in the marketplace.

The Center for Integrity in Business at Seattle Pacific University tackles head-on the real-life challenges faced by business leaders. We bring a distinct Christian perspective to our work, believing that biblical insight and theological understanding are essential for effective business leadership in the world today. When faith and business come together, a new value proposition results.

Business You Can Believe In

At the Center, we’re guided by a commitment to empirical research, yet we’re action oriented. Drawing on theological and management scholarship, we seek transformation by creating tools, resources, and learning communities that enable businesspeople to lead with greater integrity for shaping a more just and flourishing world.

Just Business Roundtable

Icicle Ridge Winery (near Leavenworth, WA) is the beautiful location of the next Just Business Roundtable the weekend of August 1-3. A deep dive with Icicle Ridge Winery leadership will be held on Saturday, August 2.

Faith@Work Summit

October 24-25 in Boston - A renewed commitment to integrating faith at work continues to grow in the workplace and the church. Literature on faith at work abounds. Initiatives keep springing up at seminaries, business schools, and workplace ministries. It all appears to be led by God's spirit and not the effort of a single person or organization.

Find much more information on the conference website.
