United for the Common Good
Christian Employers Alliance unites Christian employers to help impact the flourishing of organizations and communities. We work collaboratively with many organizations to affirm and encourage the critical importance of exercising faith in the workplace and the continued freedom to do.
Christian employers exercising their faith in the workplace is an essential aspect of our economy, our democracy, and our daily Christian witness. The Christian Employers Alliance understands the needs and values of Christian employers and work tirelessly to raise awareness of the many faith-in-the-workplace related resources, as well as provide facilitation to help address opportunities and challenges of Christian employers.
“I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.“
1 Corinthians 1:10
Why Unite Now?
Christians must work together to collectively understand and address multiple opportunities and challenges that exist in our workplaces, in our communities, and in broader culture. The first initiative of Christian Employers Alliance was to address government healthcare mandates inconsistent with Christian values. (The federal government and at least 28 states have some form of the mandate to include coverage for abortion-inducing drugs or devices.) In 2016, CEA filed for an exemption from this federal abortifacient mandate and the subsequent accommodation, and as of May 15, 2019, this exemption was granted. This exemption applies to current and future CEA members.
Christian-owned companies and Christian non-profits can take this exemption from the federal abortifacient mandate by joining Christian Employers Alliance and requesting that your insurer remove abortion-causing drugs and devices from your plan.
While this initiative continues, other working groups are forming around other opportunities and challenges. Through CEA and multiple partners, Christian employers have an opportunity to unite for collective impact toward the well-being of our organizations, communities, nation and world for God's glory. This will take a combined effort of our collective living out the Great Commandment, Great Commission, and Cultural Mandate. This is happening more and more! Join us!
