Event Description

Sharing from his own story, pastor and author Tom Nelson explores the perils of the lack of faith, work, and economic integration in the life and mission of the local church. Learn how his seminary education influenced the early days of his pastoral ministry and how he eventually minimized the Sunday-to-Monday gap in his congregation. Gain a more robust theology of vocation as you consider the importance of work for every member of God's family.
