Faith in Work: Lessons From a Faith-Based Vocational Fellowship

Matt Allen, DDS

The 5280 Fellowship is a multidisciplinary faith-based vocational fellowship run by the Denver Institute for Faith and Work aiming to help professionals apply the gospel in their work. The curriculum is a mix of theology, community, cultural analysis, leadership development, and Christian spiritual formation. Dr. Allen completed the fellowship in May 2018, and will help participants explore key learnings as they apply to our work as health care professionals and to the health care profession in general. Dr. Allen will also share how the fellowship helped him leave his role at dental director of a federally qualified health center and embark upon a year-long sabbatical.
