Peter Wagner, faith and work movement expert, shares the most significant paradigm shift since the Reformation: bridge-building between the Nuclear Church and the Extended Church. But theres a gap between the once-a-week Church and the Church in the workplace. Each has a unique culture and its own rule book. Creating harmony between these two powerful forces allows believers in both realms to fulfill their God-given mandates.
Gods people make up the Church every day, not just on Sunday. On the other six days, followers of Christ transform into the Extended Church. Wagners comprehensive volume shows Christians how to expand their vision and live out their faith both on the clock and in the pews.
Jesus ministered in the marketplace. So should we. But the culture wont be transformed unless it happens through us. The Church in the Workplace is a comprehensive guide to workplace transformation and will help you understand your call to service, to sense that God stands ready to anoint your work.
All Christians, no matter the task or employer, can grasp Gods authority and power when they see their job as a holy invitation to claim souls for the Kingdom and change the world.
