Our Story

After years of pastoring, Tom Nelson realized he committed what he calls “pastoral malpractice,” neglecting to disciple his congregants in the whole of their lives. Inspired by the critical gains of the faith and work movement, he aimed to help pastors around the country avoid the same mistake.

In 2015, Nelson and a team of church, business, and private sector partners launched Made to Flourish in order to “empower a growing network of pastors” to better engage, equip, and encourage each other as they integrate a more robust theology of faith, work, and economics into their churches.

Why It Matters

You don't have to be an architect

to build a better city.

Where You Need To Be
Sho Baraka

Made to Flourish exists to bring a new story of work to pastors, churches, and communities across the country. Through this new narrative, pastors become better shepherds to people in the workplace, and Sunday worshipers look outside their church walls for ministry and discipleship opportunities in their Monday-to-Friday work.
