NGU to Host Work as Worship Retreat Livestream
Tigerville, SC (January 31, 2019) On February 22, 2019, hundreds of local and international churches will host the second annual Work as Worship Retreat livestream event. The Retreat will bring together thousands of Christian business professionals from around the world to hear speakers like Jon Acuff (New York Times Bestselling Author), Steve Green (President of Hobby Lobby), and Megan Alexander (Correspondent at Inside Edition) explore the sacred connection between faith and work.
For Christians who also happen to be business professionals, faith and work don’t often intersect. The connection between faith and work is not always obvious, but it is a God-given calling to make them connect. What if all Christians saw work as something holy? And what if work was actually an opportunity to worship God?
The Bible is full of examples of people living their daily lives on an eternal mission, weaving together their faith and work in their everyday lives. Like the men and women of the Bible, God designed Christians to worship AND work together. RightNow Media is passionate about seeing the two brought back together, which is why the Work as Worship Retreat was organized.
“We all spend the majority of our waking hours doing some kind of work—in the office, on the job site, or around the house—but we are often tempted to compartmentalize our faith and our work,” says RightNow Media President Brian Mosley. “However, God has called us to live out our faith every day of the week, not just on Sundays.”
RightNow Media’s beliefs about faith and work boil down to the following eight tenants: Work is good; sin corrupted work; Jesus makes it possible for work to be redeemed; God gave us a mission; we carry Christ into our work; God grows us through our work; God can do more with our work than we can imagine; work is worship.
God gives every person their talents and skills so that through them we might worship him. The Work as Worship Retreat is an opportunity to connect our talents and skills back to our daily worship through work.
North Greenville University will host a livestream of the event on February 22, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. on the Tim Brashier Campus located at 405 Lancaster Ave, Greer, SC.
