Rethinking Work Panel

The Gospel Coalition Conference 2013


In this 47-minute discussion, Tim Keller, Tom Nelson, Dave Kiersznowski, and Katherine Leary Alsdorf dialogue about the value of working in a secular environment as a Christian. It’s all too easy to feel that working in the world, and not as a pastor or missionary, isn’t as valuable. This conversation seeks to reconcile our work and our faith.

As we go to our daily jobs—whether in the secular world or in a ministry—we must recognize that God has called us to faithfully represent Him in whatever we do. Our ministry is to live out the hope of the gospel, and to bear Christ’s image well. Today, remember that God has created you for a purpose where you can glorify Him.
