VOCA was founded in 2014 to equip thousands to find God's purpose and power in their daily work. Started as an initiative of the New York City Leadership Center, VOCA has operated as an independent sister organization since 2018. We serve individuals around the globe, including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Singapore, that are looking for more in their work.


 VOCA is driven by the knowledge that individuals can significantly improve the quality of their experience and productivity at work, making it a way to worship God. For Christians, this is more than a practical advantage–it is a biblical mandate. Our Christ-centered coaching, training, and framework deliver the clarity you need to navigate workplace dilemmas.
