Your Work: More than a Paycheck
Humanity, being in the image of God, is meant to be creative and manage our world. Yet it often seems that our daily responsibilities either become a god themselves or just serve as a distraction from serving the Lord. Work is not a product of the curse; rather it is a sacred call from God Himself!
Join us for a dynamic one-day conference, Your Work: More than a Paycheck, and learn how to be an agent of worship and ministry in your place of work.
