Your Clear Next Step Christian Business Conference

In our commitment to step up in faith, and in celebration of the God who serves as our Rock, our Fortress, and our Foundation, Your Clear Next Step is thrilled to host our first-ever conference for Christ-followers at work. This is a non-denominational, ecumenical, Bible-based session intended to encourage people of faith in the workplace.

About the Conference

With positive and encouraging messages of faith at work, a session targeted specifically for people-leaders and a concurrent session targeted specifically for individual contributors, and an ending keynote that inspires a call to action, Your Clear Next Step seeks to bring Christ-followers in the area an opportunity to gather together in fellowship, celebrate God’s goodness, and seek ways to serve Him more intentionally, and to share His abundant love with others more purposefully at work, with the hope of giving Him all the glory and drawing others to His saving grace.

The conference runs from 10-2 on the second Friday in June, and includes lunch, learning, application, and opportunities for fellowship.  We are fully anticipating this inaugural event to turn into an annual conference to help continue to strengthen and encourage fellow believers at work and to continue to shine God’s light in our day-to-day workplaces.

  • Where: Trinity United Presbyterian Church, 200 S Howard Indianola, IA, 50125

We’re inviting each leader to bring at least one individual contributor with them so that you can take back the words and messages you hear together during the large-group sessions and separately during the breakout sessions and encourage each other to live them out day to day at work.

We’re collecting a free-will offering during the event, with proceeds going to Meals From the Heartland and Heal House of Iowa.

You’re welcome to support the event by registering to attend or making a donation. If you’re interested in learning about other ways to get involved, we invite you to connect with us here.

About this year's theme

The 2019 theme for the conference is “Feed My Sheep”. The large-group sessions, small-group sessions, and application workshops will all center around that theme.  Enjoy fellowship, food, and focused sessions designed to help you live out the call that Jesus asked Peter to do.  “Do you Love me?” Christ asked Peter.  “Lord, you know I do,” Peter replied.  “Feed my Sheep” Christ said, three times.  (John 21:15-18)

Learn more about how to do just that, and how to take active, purposeful steps each day to feed and care for others, by caring for their physical and emotional needs and by pointing them to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

Psalm 133:1 “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!”

Why are you doing this?

Colossians 3:12-17  “12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.  15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Matthew 5:16, “Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Can I come alone?

Of course, all are welcome!  We’d love to have you come, whether on your own, or with others from your workplace.  If you’re a leader of people, we invite you to bring at least one of your team members – maybe your whole team if you can, as a chance to grow and learn and share this time together.

Is it really free?

The first 100 registrations are free of charge.  Registrations after that will include an administrative cost of $10.  Parking is free.  An optional, free-will offering will be collected during the event, with proceeds supporting Meals From the Heartland and Heal House, in support of this year’s theme “Feed My Sheep”.
