Seeing work, vocation, and economics through eyes of faith.

The average person will invest 100,000 hours of their lives in their work. God cares about these hours because work is his idea. So how does "ordinary work" fit into his mission for the world?

The Work with Purpose Initiative at Bethel Seminary wants to help seminarians, churches, and workers explore fundamental questions about the role of work:

  • How does God provide for other people’s flourishing through even the most menial work that we do?
  • How can our workplaces be places of discipleship for us?
  • What do words like "vocation" and "calling" mean, and how can they help us find purpose in our lives?
  • How can we steward not just our finances but also our working lives in service of the gospel?

Learn more about what we do to wrestle with these issues and promote the reintegration of faith with work, vocation, and economics.
