Why is this Retreat important?

The Work as Worship Retreat is designed with your church in mind. Your church is made up of men and women who spend the majority of their week in the workplace. As Christians, they face many challenges in today’s culture and they need your encouragement. They serve as an extension of your church as they work and lead in the community at-large. You have a unique opportunity to help them be the hands and feet of Jesus to those who might not otherwise set foot in a church. That’s why we decided to step in and provide a way for you to specifically minister to them. Many business leaders are unsure of how to connect their faith and work. They might have a sense of how their faith impacts their parenting and marriage and giving, but can lose sight of how their faith intersects with their role as a business leader. The Retreat seeks to teach the Work as Worship message while empowering the local church to serve its business leaders.

What is our role as a church?

While the Retreat is a national event, it’s also a local event. Since you provide a space to meet, we will equip you with the tools you need to maximize the Retreat in your context. Your role is to invite the business leaders of your church and create an atmosphere of encouragement and validation. During the event itself, the opening devotional and lunchtime are available for you to invite local leaders to speak—such as a local pastor or another leader in the community. We hope to create an opportunity for you to minister to the Christian leaders within your congregation.

Host sites in North and South America will access the content based on their respective time zones. The live Retreat will begin at 7:30AM CST.
