Practical ways young believers can influence their sphere at the workplace for God’s Kingdom
Let me set the context to this post. First, I do not have a lot of experience in the workplace, 2 years and 4 months to be exact. So if you are looking for in-depth content this might not be the post you’re looking for. That being said, I do love the Workplace and what God’s Word says about it. I also know how challenging it can be entering the workplace as young people. In most cases, we start our careers unprepared. It is with this heart, I’m writing on this topic, from my experience and perspective.
Last year in 2018 our Church – All Peoples Church (APC) hosted its annual Christian Professionals Conference. As a part of the pre-event buzz, the team ran a white paper challenge. To write your thoughts on a topic from a list curated by the team. I really didn’t think much of it. After a reminder email was sent a day before the due date. I thought why not give it a shot. I didn’t put much effort into the piece in all honesty. Fast forward to October 6th, 2018, the day of the conference. It was time to announce the winners of the pre-event contest. And to my surprise, I won the white paper challenge! I really couldn’t believe it.
So here it is, my unedited white paper piece for you to read and gain insight. Enjoy!
Called & Commissioned
Mentor & Imitate
As I conclude this post… If you’re reading this and you are already in the workplace, I pray that God would take you to newer heights for His Glory. If you’re here and you are stepping into work soon, my prayer is that you would be the perfect representative of Jesus in the Workplace. Thank you for reading and pouring in the support. Feel free to share this with your friends and family and don’t forget to comment your thoughts as well.
