I have been astounded to see the importance of work in the Bible. God himself is a worker. God put Adam and Eve in the garden to tend it and to work it. Jesus says, “My Father is working until now, and I am working.” (John 5:17) So being excellent workers is fundamental to who God has made us to be, and to fulfilling our calling here on this earth.
Yet most Christians have not received adequate training for how to live out their life in the workplace. Here at Grace Chapel, we believe that the move of the Spirit is toward faith and work initiatives. We want to help our young adult leaders live out their life in the workplace every day. The Boston Fellows program will help our people bring the gospel into every aspect of their life. It’s what whole-life discipleship is all about.
