Opus: The Art of Work is an institute at Wheaton College dedicated to understanding God’s call for our work in the world.
Opus exists to help Wheaton College prepare its students for life-long work that honors God and fosters human flourishing. Through curricular enhancements, staff and faculty development, direct-to-student programming, and speakers, Opus provides resources on vocational discernment, institutional & civic responsibility, and redemptive imagination for the workplace and the world.
Opus pursues this mission by primarily working with faculty, staff, curricula and co-curricular programs to infuse a deep understanding of and attention to issues of faith and vocation into the structures of the college and the graduate school. Opus has selected these “behind the scenes” strategies in order to most effectively integrate these themes into the DNA of the Wheaton community.
“Through your enthusiasm for the integration of faith and work, you showed me what an opportunity it was for a Christian to be in any work place. My calling to follow Christ may lead me to the wilderness or to streams of fresh water, Africa or to the Middle East. Wherever it will be, I pray I will recognize the opportunities to serve and draw people to Christ's Kingdom.”
Opus regularly engages in a variety of projects designed to move the Opus mission forward.
Opus invites faculty and students into intensive fellowships every year.
