  • The most frequent question I hear Christian business leaders ask is, how do I

    integrate our Christian faith into the workplace? Lifework Leadership addresses

    this need by investing in the renewal and transformation of leaders, and

    empowers them to lead their businesses, their families and their communities

    by Godly principles.

    We envision business leaders throughout Jacksonville,

    who cross vocational, denominational, and racial lines

    to transform the minds and hearts of their companies,

    churches and communities.

    This is the vision that inspires and motivates those

    who have experienced the Lifework Leadership

    training program.

    We are committed to equipping leaders because

    we believe that the quality of leadership in an

    organization makes the difference between success

    and failure. Our principles are based on a Christian

    worldview and are readily transferable for todays

    marketplace. They are principles that are good for

    business as well as personal development.

    We invite you to complete the attached application

    for the Lifework Leadership Class or encourage an

    associate, parishioner, or friend to apply.

    We invite you to experience our program so that

    together we can make a transforming impact

    throughout Jacksonville.


    A clear perspective and purpose of who they really are and how they fit into their world.

    A desire to positively shape their corporate culture and meaningfully serve non-profit organizations.

    An exposure to the needs of the broader community.

    Significant and strategic relationships that will enrich their personal and professional lives.


    Leaders who participate in significant ways.

    Leaders who use their influence to make a lasting difference in their community.


    Employees who have stronger ethics and values.

    Employees who have a new network of relationships.

    Employees who represent them with greater community presence and influence.

    A deeper bench and pipeline for leaders.


  • Among the most noble of efforts: an older generation pouring itself into a

    younger with the intention of encouraging emerging community leadership that

    possesses moral, spiritual, and intellectual strength. This is Lifework Leaderships

    business, and I am proud to be associated with it.

  • We envision a generation of business leaders, throughout Jacksonville,

    who cross vocational, denominational, and racial lines to

    transform the minds and hearts of their companies,

    churches, and ultimately their city.

    Steven French

    President Lifework Leadership

  • T R A N S F O R M I N G L E A D E R S

    Lifework Leadership was established in 1992 to bring vitality to cities by transforming and mobilizing Christian business leaders. It is based in Orlando, Florida.

    Lifework was birthed through the vision of former U.S. Senator William Armstrong (CO) who envisioned a nation that could be transformed through leaders who had a clear calling and Christian worldview. Armstrong challenged Ralph D. Veerman, of Veerman & Associates, and Larry Kreider, President of The Gathering USA, Inc., to be founding partners in 1992. The model was then refined with the appointment of Steven French as President in 2000. French brought Lifeworks staff, program, and curriculum to a position that allows its model of leadership transformation to be transferable to other cities. The vision remains clear transformed leaders, transform cities.

    The Chairman of Lifework Leadership/Jacksonvilles Board of Advisors, is Randy Drew, CEO of PARC Management.
