God & the Great Outdoors: How Faith Shapes Outdoor Retailing & Recreation
July 26 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Outdoor recreation generates $28 billion dollars in consumer spending annually and creates 229,000 jobs, making it a powerful driver of Colorado’s economy. But its influence doesn’t stop there–almost ¾ of Colorado’s residents participate in outdoor recreation every year, crowding the aisles at REI and trails to the top of their favorite peaks.
Outdoor recreation is close to the hearts of many Coloradoans, but how does it shape our souls? How do Christians in outdoor retailing integrate their faith and work in a pluralistic industry?
Join Denver Institute for Faith & Work and a panel of leading outdoor athletes, guides, and business owners, for an evening exploring the social, economic, and spiritual impact of outdoor retailing and recreation. Discover the importance of play, learn how outdoor adventure shapes our souls, and hear how successful entrepreneurs bring faith to their work.
