Most of our lives is spent at work. Yet sadly, we sometimes compartmentalize our faith to a few hours on a Sunday. But God calls us to integrate our faith and our work. And it is amazing how much more meaningful our lives become when we do that, not to mention the remarkable impact this has on our whole approach to work. God@work exists to help people integrate work and faith.
We're seeking to bring people from similar sectors together in an exciting collaboration of integrating faith and work. Here are the five questions we're challenging every person in every work arena to answer ...
How can we collaborate to:
1. Bring the message of Jesus to our peers?
2. Bring down the social giants in our City?
3. Change the culture of our industries for the common good?
4. Become more excellent at what we do, for God’s glory?
5. Strengthen the church in our City?
These questions encapsulate God's challenge to every one of us working ‘full-time’ for God in the marketplace. Wherever our main area of influence is, that is where we need to be most strategic about counting for God and working for the common good.
Our sector strategy
We’re convinced that the time is now to take courageous steps in increasing our overall City impact! We have organized ourselves into marketplace spheres, or sectors, so that we can begin to get our heads around the distinct Kingdom challenges and opportunities of our sectors, and then begin to actively collaborate with one another within our sectors.
