WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Learn how leaders in the marketplace glorify God through their work. Above all, Work Redefined lays the foundation for God’s design for work. You and your group will learn from five influential marketplace leaders and gain a clear understanding of WHY you work, HOW to live your faith at work, and WHO you can influence at work.

Each of the five modules are made up of a 10-minute video followed by a summary, reflection, discussion questions and next steps. This is a great small group resource at work for people at the start of their faith-and-work journey!

 

What People are Saying:

“Work was designed by God as good and existed prior to the fall. The questions encouraged really good discussion by the group.”

“The stories and scriptures encourage me in my work.”

“Faith goes beyond the workplace. And also the speaker's enthusiasm was contagious!”

“This (work as mission) is such a vitally important part of Kingdom work because we encounter a very diverse, complex, and sometimes dark mission field each and every day. There were some great reminders about influencing others for Christ and making disciples. Nicely done.”

LEAD A SMALL GROUP


Start a Small Group at Work Want to start a small group but not sure you’re ready? It's okay, because with Workmatters small group resources for work you don’t need to be a teacher or experienced small group leader. All resources are designed to be peer-facilitated so everyone can learn from each other.

1. Choose a Resource
Think about what you want to learn, where you want to grow as a leader, and also how long you’ll have to meet and how many times. Once you've identified that, choose the resource that best fits your needs.

2. Start any time.
Invite a few people to join your small group at work and then choose a day and time that works for everyone. Additionally, don't forget to take into consideration any work events or holidays coming up.

Schedule it around the workday. Find 30 to 60 minutes either before work or during your lunch break. Further, if you're looking to widen your network, you can even organize a group with marketplace professionals in your church or from other companies.

3. Find a meeting place.
Book a conference room at your office or meet at a coffee shop, a restaurant, or your local library.

4. Get support.
We recommend that you have a co-facilitator so you can share the work and have someone help you lead the group if you are out. You can invite someone up front or ask a group member after your small group at work gets started. Even more, this is a great leadership development opportunity for someone who may not have experience facilitating a small group at work.
