CIY'S DOING WHAT?

Kingdom Work isn’t just for students. Ministry isn’t just for pastors. All believers are called to use their abilities for the Gospel’s sake. Good news, everything you have overflows with potential – your day job included. Join the team at CIY for a one-day conference for church leaders and business leaders. CIY wants to give you a chance to discuss what’s possible through your church when business and church leaders work together. Intentional conversations over coffee or tacos, inspirational speakers who live out their ideas, and next steps that make sense – that’s just the start of the WRKR Gathering. All of these things, all of us, coming together to help you do Kingdom Work at work.

WHERE'S BENTONVILLE, AR?

In the early ’60s, a man named Sam Walton opened up a five-and-dime store in Bentonville, AR. Northwest Arkansas, and the way the world shops, would never be the same. Sixty years later, Northwest Arkansas is a business and tech hub, combining small-town charm with global commerce. The Record, the WRKR Gathering venue, sits around the corner from Sam Walton’s first store and is surrounded by coffee shops, Instagram-worthy dining, and inspiring spaces to connect.
