Often what happens on a Sunday morning has little to no connection with the realities of the rest of our weeks and the work (paid or unpaid) that fills a majority of our time - at least if you're not in a paid pastoral position in a local congregation. What is at stake in this gap between Sunday morning worship and Monday morning work?
Join fellow pastors and ministry leaders, along with pastor and author Tom Nelson, to explore the perils of the lack of faith, work, and economic integration in the life and mission of the local church. Gain a more robust theology of vocation, including increased competency in the fundamentals of economic theory, principles, and practice. Consider how an individual's work fits into the interdependent and collaborative economic enterprise that furthers the common good and promotes human flourishing.
Registration includes a breakfast buffet and lunch in the Bethel University Dining Center immediately following the event at Noon.
The event program begins at 9:00 am but registration opens at 8:00 am - come early to network with fellow pastors and ministry leaders.
