On January 27, 2016, Nashville Institute for Faith & Work will host the Faith & Work Summit at City Winery, featuring special guests Katherine Alsdorf (former Silicon Valley CEO and Founder of the Center for Faith & Work in New York), Bill Lee (CEO, Lee Company), Troy Tomlinson (President/CEO, Sony/ATV Music Publishing), and Tom Douglas (hit songwriter for Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, and others).

Can faith really impact a career? Does non-charitable or “corporate” work have a meaningful place in the life of a person of faith? A special guest panel will discuss these questions and many more on January 27 at the Nashville Institute for Faith & Work’s Faith & Work Summit. From 6:30-9:30 p.m. on the evening of the 27th, several hundred Nashville professionals, leaders, artists, and organizers will gather at City Winery to network and learn from some of the most dynamic local and national leaders currently considering these ideas.

The Faith & Work Summit’s panel includes Katherine Alsdorf, a former Silicon Valley CEO and the Founder of the Center for Faith & Work in New York City. Alsdorf is the co-author with Tim Keller of Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God’s Work, a foundational book in the faith/work movement.

The evening will also feature Troy Tomlinson, President and CEO of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Tomlinson has guided the songwriting careers of dozens of artists, including Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Blake Shelton, Gary Levox (Rascal Flatts), Brett Eldredge, The Band Perry, Johnnyswim, Cole Swindell, Chase Rice, Chris Young, Thomas Rhett and Kenny Chesney, with whom he is credited with discovering.

Also on the Faith & Work Summit panel is Bill Lee, CEO of Lee Company, a 72-year-old Nashville business that has been repeatedly honored as one of Tennessee’s Top 5 “Best Companies to Work For.”

The Faith & Work Summit’s entertainment will be an intimate songwriter’s round with Tom Douglas, a CMA award-winning and Academy Award-nominated songwriter (Miranda Lambert’s “The House That Built Me,” two number one singles with Tim McGraw, and hits with Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride and others).

“This will be a very informative event for people from all backgrounds in all stages of their careers,” says Missy Wallace, Executive Director of Nashville Institute for Faith & Work. “I expect attendees to get tremendous value out of the Faith & Work Summit. Katherine Alsdorf founded the Center for Faith & Work in New York City fourteen years ago, becoming one of the first people to seriously consider and nurture the relationship between people’s faith and their professional work. We are honored to have her and all of our guests join us for this evening.”

Tickets for the Faith & Work Summit are available online through Eventbrite at A limited number of Special Access Tickets, which include a meet-and-greet with the speakers before the event, are also available through Eventbrite.
