Why does work matter?
Encourage each other to live out your faith in the workplace with this powerful group series, including discussion videos, a participant app, and a leader’s guide.
Your work matters to God.
We don’t often discuss how we can glorify and serve God in our particular industry, role, or workplace. But the Bible is full of stories about people in the workplace: Joseph, Ruth, and Daniel, to name but a few. Entrepreneurs create jobs, writers communicate truth, architects, engineers, and builders provide safety and shelter. Beyond doing good work that benefits others, we can also change the culture and atmosphere of our workplace. We can bless our bosses and co-workers. Working Christians have so many opportunities to show and share God’s love and flourish in their faith.
Transforming Work allows you to gather with other working Christians to explore the biblical view of work and how to practically apply it in your own life. It provides exercises for examining your situation through different frameworks and to discuss with peers how you can make a difference at work. Between gatherings, the app gives ways to reflect, try things out, and pray, leaving time for seeds to grow, discoveries to be made, and for God to do what only he can do.
Transforming Work is like no other workplace programme in its depth, practicality, and application. Its eight extended sessions can be spread over eight weeks, eight months, or even a year – depending on the pace your group wants to take.
Each session includes:
– A ten-minute ‘table talk’ video on a key workplace topic (view the taster video below)
– Interviews and stories from working Christians
– A Bible passage and teaching on how to read it ‘through workers’ eyes’
– Discussion questions, assessments, and activities
– Suggestions for prayer and reflection exercises
Accompanying each session are materials on the app for going deeper and preparing for the next session.
The eight sessions cover:
Why does work matter?
How can I do good work?
How can I flourish at work?
How can I influence the culture of my workplace?
How can I improve relationships at work?
How can I share my faith at work?
How can I tackle workplace issues with biblical principles?
How can I remain fruitful over the long-term?
Starting a group couldn’t be easier! All you need is a leader’s pack, the app, and a group of people interested in discussing how God is with them in their workplace.
Transforming Work groups are a great way to be encouraged and equipped for workplace discipleship. Along with like-minded Christians, explore what it means to be fruitful for Christ in your job and be strengthened as you seek to make a difference for him there.
