Mission & Vision
The Research Triangle of North Carolina is rapidly expanding. The area has seen immense growth in the fields of academia, research and development, technology, science, pharmaceuticals, and the like over the past several years. With such an extensive history of and capacity for growth, the Research Triangle is the ideal location for the Catholic community of the area to reinvigorate itself. There has never been a more crucial time to reset our minds and refocus on hearts on what truly matters in this world and how we can incorporate our faith beliefs into our everyday work spaces.
Our mission as the Triangle Professionals for Christ, or T-PFC, is to develop a network of Catholic/Christian professionals in the Triangle area that will inspire and support one another to be witnesses to Christ's Way in our vocations.
Our vision is to develop and expand a community of Catholic/Christian believers within and in the areas surrounding the Research Triangle that seeks to unashamedly and wholly live out its faith in the professional workplace. We aim to motivate and challenge our peers to witness to our beautiful faith in all aspects of our various lines of work, including those positions in which we find the mention of God to be scarce, unwelcome, or potentially even regarded with contempt. We are called as followers of Christ to witness to this very vocation and to be the shining examples of discipleship in all areas of life, including the workplace. We pray that God will mobilize this community to help us walk alongside one another as we faithfully leap into integrating, rather than separating, our faith beliefs amongst our professional work.
“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ” (Colossians 3:23-24).
