Ambition: Living With Drive & Devotion


"Ambitions for God, however, if they are to be worthy, can never be modest. There is something inherently inappropriate about cherishing small ambitions for God... Once we are clear that God is King, then we long to see him crowned with glory and honor, and accorded his true place, which is the supreme place. We become ambitious for the spread of his kingdom and righteousness everywhere."

- John Stott

Christian women have a complicated relationship with ambition. It's not something we talk about often, or when we do, it's framed as an undesirable attribute.

But what if God intends us to be holy and ambitious? What if our drive plays a vital role in God's renewing work in the world?

Rather than diminishing our desires it's time to recover ambition for God's glory and for others' good. Join Denver Institute for Faith & Work for "Ambition: Living with Drive & Devotion," a gathering of Colorado women passionate about stepping forward, taking risks, and expanding God's kingdom.

Whether you work in the marketplace, home, or community, this event will help clarify your calling and steward the resources God has entrusted to you. Learn to express your ambition with confidence while navigating the challenges you face as a woman of influence.

Dinner included in ticket price. Childcare for children up to age 5 provided.
