Purpose in the every day

As Americans, we spend more than one-third of our lives on the job. But as Christians, we believe work is not simply a place we show up to every day. Work is something we are called and created to do—in an office, at home, on a job site, as a volunteer, or sitting behind a laptop screen at a coffee shop.
With so many hours, days and years “on the job,” how does work fit into or relate to Christians’ lives? How can our faith be strengthened by and affirmed for our vocations? What challenges must be navigated to prevent workplace burnout, a crisis of faith, or both? And how can faith be integrated into all the “doing” that gets done in a given day?
At Northeast Indiana Center for Faith and Work, these questions drive our mission. We are here to help you find the purpose in the every day.

    The Unspoken Vocational Hierarchy

    For those of us who are followers of Christ, we know our purpose is to live holy and glorify God. And part of glorifying God is making known his kingdom and his ways.

    So how does our workplace fit into such a purpose? Should it be our primary mission field where we seek to carry out the Great Commission? Is it simply a means to provide for our families and earn enough money to support our church, missionaries, and parachurch organizations? Or is secular work—even for-profit business—the principle mission to which God calls many of us?
