Faith & Work Seminar

FaithWork_800How do I live for Jesus at work? Does my faith have anything to do with Monday through Saturday, and not just Sunday? What if I struggle to share my faith with co-workers? Does God care about my struggles on the job, or just my “spiritual” trials?

On November 15th, you are cordially invited to an exciting seminar to help us understand how our Christian faith in the Gospel of Jesus applies to our jobs, duties, bosses and employees. Hosted at Zion Evangelical & Reformed Church, our Diakonos Lectures are designed to encourage Christians toward deeper faith in serving others in their lives, and we need biblical truth in the way we work! If Jesus delivered the Gospel – the Good News – to help us glorify God in every aspect of life, then that surely touches our jobs and vocations as well. We will have the chance to hear from several people – representing all sorts of different jobs, and other churches – all sharing how Jesus impacts them through their jobs. And what is more, we will work together to connect the Gospel with what we do in our jobs!

When: Nov 15th, at 4:00 p.m.
What: Great teaching, fellowship, and free meal!
RSVP: Register (free!) here

Some of the vocations the Lord cares strongly about which we will be considering are:

  • agriculture
  • homemaking
  • finance
  • medical/health/science
  • pre-work & retirement years
  • education
  • civic/political
  • caring for the elderly and young

If these or other aspects of your faith and work are interesting to you, than this seminar is for you! Join us!

BartCareyOur keynote speaker is Bart Carey. He is an elder at Hope Community Church, husband, and father of two boys. He loves woodworking, house projects, puzzles, cooking and spending time with family and friends. He has worked for over 20 years in the medical device industry and currently works at CVRx, a medical device start-up in Brooklyn Park. He has wrestled with how to connect the Gospel to his work in as many ways as possible, and he looks forward to discussing that at this conference.

The seminar will begin at 4p.m. and is free to attend, though we ask that you RSVP to help plan for food and resources. You can RSVP here! Please invite people from other churches or communities to join us for this great time of fellowship!
