Faith and Work

Faith and Work

Equip leaders to help people understand the essential connection between their work and their faith.

Created in conjunction with Bethel Seminary's Work with Purpose initiative with funding from the Kern Family Foundation, this 31-page training resource makes the theological case for the importance of vocation while providing practical training for how church leaders can affirm others in their callings. "Faith and Work" is designed to move a group of leaders through an in-depth exploration of the topic. It includes case studies, Bible studies, historical articles, theological reflections, and practical tips. It's a great tool for leaders who are hungry for a deeper understanding of vocation and eager to help others serve God through their callings.
