There are opportunities to invest in companies that encourage faith conversations. They might employ corporate chaplains furthering prayer coverage, care for their team, customers, partners, vendors, and employees.
PUBLIC COMPANIES THAT CARE FOR THEIR TEAM WITH CHAPLAINCY and ENCOURAGING FAITH GROUPS
Chaplaincy has long been a reliable marker that leadership of a company is serious about ministering to the spiritual needs of its employees. Corporate Chaplains of America (CCA) and Marketplace Chaplains have been leaders in this field and there is new energy from others to build on this for the millennial generation in Silicon Valley and elsewhere. Of recent note, David Miller, Director of the Faith and Work Initiative at Princeton has released a very compelling research paper on the case for Chaplaincy. Another new trend that is promising is an emergence of faith friendly initiatives at larger companies like Salesforce, Apple, Google, Uber, Ford and other companies. This is a trend to watch. Many of these initiatives support Christ followers meeting publicly within the company as a group for Bible Study and prayer. The large companies that support these groups, of course encourage them from other faith traditions as well.
In the months ahead there might be a chance to highlight these public companies that have taken a stance and are supportive of these ways to care for their team.
