We make being Christian powerfully simple.
I'm Linda Furtado, founder and director of Cross Vocational. I believe that everyone is called to be a servant leader that is informed and empowered to serve. However, sometimes the church makes things complicated or dumbs down faith in practice to a point that it loses its value, its flavor and impact.
We are "the salt of the earth," but that doesn't mean being Christian is a given, and easy way of living. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to take some of the hard parts of Christian living and make them accessible in simple ways.
Cross Vocational is committed to creating experiences that make learning, worship, and spiritual formation powerfully simple and letting you know about what others are doing in across the breadth of Christian ministry the world (Rather than reinventing the wheel.)
With your support, we can help ensure that every business, club, church, and organization recruits and develops faithful leaders who live out their baptismal covenant. Together we can transform the world and make a life that is cross vocational, faith-filled and vocationally purposeful.
Connect with our educational resources and experiences designed to facilitate our mission where you are.
We provide resources that allow individuals to journey with others while being personally challenged for growth and transformation.

What others say about Cross Vocational
We may be new to the name, but have been about this work for several years now and are excited to bring our past work under this new non-profit ministry umbrella.
I was inspired to create and give myself another 31 day challenge. I don't know that I would have completed it if I hadn't done the 31 Day Prayer Challenge first.

Everything is online and membership is via enrollment in the online school. You can join as an individual or opt in with a 1-year user license based on the size of your group, church, or organization.
This very low cost membership is our way of saying a big thank you to all of the early adopters. With your support we are able to fund getting more content off of the ground sooner and making much desired upgrades to existing content. This is a limited time opportunity.

When you purchase a license the purchaser will receive a code to distribute to your group. This code will be limited to only allow the number of enrollments covered by the license you choose. Each individual's year of membership starts on the day that they sign up with the code.

These events are free to you and made available as funding and time between self-care, family, church, and work allow. More to come as we grow capacity among our leaders and volunteer base.
