The Asbury Marketplace Summit is a conference open to the community that unites students, pastors, business and community leaders to discuss faith, work and economics in the marketplace and how social entrepreneurship carries out Kingdom-minded initiatives using the business approach.


Not just another conference, The Asbury Marketplace Summit is an experience designed to inspire you to make an impact in the world! Join us for two days of impactful dialogue and interaction with national speakers, local social entrepreneurs, community leaders, and pastors who will share innovative approaches in business as mission, community transformation, and how to transform your ordinary day’s work into an extraordinary calling.


Prepare to innovate by learning how to use your talents and skills in creative ways to positively impact your workplace, local church, business, and community. During The Asbury Project, you will hear how individuals moved from an “idea” to a business start-up, and are leading positive change in their communities.
