Business by The Book is a monthly event where business leaders come to share their wisdom and their faith, empowering you to learn and grow.


The first Wednesday of every month is Business By The Book, where people from the business community come to be inspired and empowered by amazing leaders who fearlessly share their triumphs and tribulations and how their faith in God has positively impacted their personal and business lives. It’s a great place to connect with others over a quick lunch while getting equipped by some of the best leaders in the marketplace. Everyone is welcome.

Business by the Book is held at the the Law Courts Inn Restaurant (800 Smithe Street, 4th Floor) in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Upon arrival you will be welcomed by one of our friendly Business by the Book greeters who will direct you to where you want to go. Tickets are available upon arrival for $25 each, and must be purchased before the event.
