About Denver Institute for Faith & Work

Denver Institute for Faith & Work was founded in 2012 to bridge the gap...

The gap between faith and work, public and private, church and city.

A network of churches and professionals came together to dream of what a broader vision of the gospel might look like for our own lives – and for our city.

Meet Our Team

We are learners, teachers, and conveners dedicated to our work, our city, and a broader vision of the gospel.

We are DIFW

Why Denver?

We live, work (and hike) in the Mile High City.

Founded in the 1850s and 60s by miners, ranchers, and cowboys, today Denver is America’s #1 place to live (US News & World Report, 2016).  With a thriving start-up community, growing economy, and picturesque views, over 100,000 people move to Colorado each year.

At Denver Institute, we are wholly committed to serving the city of Denver. We celebrate what is good, lament what is broken, and partner with businesses, churches, and organizations to seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which we’ve been called.
