One of the things that many churches struggle with is releasing members to serve with the gifts that God has given them...
As a final year university student with graduation looming round the corner, I often wonder and worry about the type of work I will be doing, the kind of people I will meet, and how I will work as a Christian. With my marketing major, people sometimes comment, “You marketers just bring out the greedy side in people. You tell us what we want even if we don’t need it.” Indeed this is the case in our consumerist world, and I hope I will continue to let my faith shape the way I work, rather than having a gap between what I say and do on Sunday as opposed to the rest of the week.
This very interaction between faith and work will be discussed at ‘Transforming Work’ conference at Malyon College, Brisbane on Saturday June 20. By examining what God thinks of our work, and how church affects our work, the aim is to capture a vision for serving God in the workplace. This conference is suited for those in paid work, those about to enter the workforce, and for church leaders who desire to empower the Christian workers in their congregations.
The details of the conference are as follows:
