What does it mean to walk faithfully as a Christian in the place where most of us spend our days—the workplace? Christianity Today has just published an article where key leaders and speakers for the Global Workplace Forum answer the question, ‘Should evangelism be the highest priority of Christians at work?’
The article is a taste of the diverse viewpoints and deep engagement that will happen at the Global Workplace Forum (GWF), starting tonight in Manila, Philippines. As a major gathering of the Lausanne Movement, GWF will seek to energize the global workplace movement, equip participants with the right tools and resources, and engage the global church in workplace ministry.
One of the most singular aspects of GWF is its representation of women and men from every corner of the workplace—in fact, 65% of the total participants will be from the workplace, the most ever in Lausanne’s history of major gatherings.
Even though all key talks from GWF will be made freely available in the coming months, you can also follow along this week:
We believe that much is at stake during the next 5 days. As Michael Oh, Executive Director / CEO of the Movement, recently wrote, the Great Commission can never be completed by the 1% of Christians who are in professional ministry. The global church needs the 99% of Christians who have their occupation in the workplace to take up their unique mantles of ministry. Please pray with us that GWF will fuel a worldwide movement of workplace engagement and ministry.
