In partnership with RightNow Media, RBC is hosting a simulcast of the Work as Worship retreat on May 14. Join thousands of Christian business professionals across the country for a one-day livestream event to hear from experts on connecting your faith and work.
The Retreat will bring together thousands of Christian business professionals from around the world to hear speakers like John Maxwell, Louie Giglio, Jon Acuff, Stephanie Chung, David Steward, and Henry Cloud 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.
This year’s event can be attended in person or it can be live-streamed from your location. If you join us at RBC, masks and social distancing will be optional. After you register and we come closer to the event, you will be sent the link if you choose to live stream.
Registration is $50.00 this year and includes lunch at RBC. However, the saints of RBC are going to subsidize half this cost so your actual cost will be $25.00. This will be done by reimbursing you.Register here
