Event Description

Work is so many things. It can be a source of either deep fulfillment or bitter frustration. We spend the vast majority of our lives at work, but do we really understand its purpose? Perhaps we should consider what work was meant to do for God’s people.

Join fellow Bethel Seminary students, community members, and pastors for dinner and a revealing look at work from biblical and theological perspectives. Four professors from San Diego and St. Paul will give short, engaging presentations on this crucial topic. Let this fast-paced evening challenge your understanding of the value of work!
