March 27th At Hope West Creek




Every man wants to do good and meaningful work. But there is often a disparity between our desires and our actual experiences. Our work can be both a source of great satisfaction and a source of significant frustration. And at some point in our lives, most of us will wrestle with big questions about our work. How can I make a significant impact? Am I doing the right type of work? Am I following a call or am I just doing a job? How can I honor God at work? How can I serve others in my job?
WORK & FAITH is a one-night event designed to help men answer these and other questions. The goal is to help men begin or continue the journey of integrating work and faith. You’ll hear from main session speakers who are passionate about these topics, and you’ll learn from breakout speakers who have faced many of the same challenges that you face in your line of work. We encourage you to bring a friend and join us for this important event.
