“We are meant to live for a far greater purpose than to simply bring home a paycheck, close big deals, or complete important projects.”

I had big plans for my life. Boy were they grand! Oh don’t get me wrong...I told God about my plans of grandeur. I figured since they were good plans that He would go along with them. I mean, it wasn’t like I was pursuing riches or fame. I wanted to be in full time ministry. It’s what I had spent my time, energy, money, and schooling on. But the thing about my plans was...they were MY plans. Over the course of several years, through many letdowns, and after several frustrating conversations with God, I have learned that my calling, specific to my job, is much more purposeful than a title, salary, or skillset. 

The Lord has sovereignly called us to our places of employment as a means for us to bring glory to His name and to love people. We are meant to live for a far greater purpose than to simply bring home a paycheck, close big deals, or complete important projects. As believers we are called to live out the Gospel and it only makes sense that the place where we spend so much or our week should be one of the places of our greatest Gospel influence. But why does that seem so hard to do for so many of us? Or maybe a better question would be, why does that concept not even cross our minds while we are at work?

In the 9-5 Gospel seminar, we will tackle these questions through the lens of Scripture. We will see what God’s Word has to say about:

Why we work
How we should work
Where we should work
What role evangelism plays at work
Is there such thing as work/life balance and if so how do we find it?
How do we maintain biblical ethics and morals in an increasingly secular work environment?

These are some of the issues we will look at under a biblical microscope and see how these things intersect with the Gospel and our identity in Christ. Register for this FREE seminar below.
