Helping Your People Engage Their Work, Calling & Culture
Have you ever wondered what congregants’ lives look like when they aren’t at church – how they resolve conflict, or relate with neighbors or make decisions? Have you ever considered what happens the 50 percent of waking hours that adults spend at work?
They may not have considered it either, at least in light of their faith. Many Christians experience an unintentional disconnect between their spiritual and professional lives. They don’t see how God values their daily work and empowers them within it. They often believe their work is less important than overtly religious activity. They might agree that you (the pastor) are “called,” but are they?
In a culture skeptical toward Christian public presence, our work becomes a platform on which to experience God, exemplify the gospel, and serve the needs of the world.

Our Church Partnership Network serves churches across Colorado’s Front Range, helping pastors and ministry leaders disciple their people in matters of work, calling, and culture. We dream of a day when Christians use their God-given gifts to influence classrooms, write public policy, and launch entrepreneurial ventures that bring life – and gospel-driven hope – to our cities.
