Our Christian faith calls us to work for the Lord, to do everything for his glory. But what does this look like on the ground, in our day-to-day working lives? What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus Christ in law, business, the arts, social justice, international development, and entertainment? And, is our work actually meaningful in the Kingdom of God?
We warmly invite you to the first series of Till and Sow, a collaborative initiative between Laidlaw College, Venn Foundation, and the Auckland Church Leaders Association. Over three evenings, you’ll be able to hear from business leaders, social justice advocates, and international development experts as they share the challenges and opportunities they’ve faced as disciples of Jesus Christ in their work.
Over drinks and nibbles, you’ll gather with a community of like-minded young professionals and hear from men and women of faith sharing their key learnings, and their journeys toward deeper understanding of God, the world, the church, and their work. Together, we’ll imagine what it might look like to work purposefully for the good of our city.
