Work as Worship Network
Many people spend a great deal of time at work and yet they don’t see how their work intersects with their faith. One of our passions at RightNow is helping people realize that there isn’t a divide between the sacred and secular parts of our lives and that working with our God-given skills can be an act of worship.
We might spend 2 hours of our week at the church building or in a small group. This kind of worship is biblical and a vital rhythm in the life of a Christian. But during the other 166 hours of our week, we have just as much potential to worship the God who created us. Our time at church and small group should launch us out into the world—which includes the marketplace—prepared to take the hope of Jesus with us.
Currently, there are pockets of churches and ministries promoting a part of the work as worship message. Some focus on how to give money as a business person, while others focus on how to do evangelism in the workplace. Some focus on business leaders, others on employees. The RightNow team is committed to creating content for business leaders and the Church that champions a holistic viewpoint of work and faith.
In order to communicate a complete and biblical picture of work and faith, we’ve defined 8 tenants of the Work as Worship message that inform all the content we create in this area, including our Work as Worship conference and video resources.
