THANK YOU TO AUSTIN CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP, GREAT HILLS BAPTIST CHURCH, HILL COUNTRY BIBLE CHURCH AUSTIN AND JOE BLAND CONSTRUCTION FOR FUNDING INTO OUR HOPES AND DREAMS OF DEVELOPING THIS PROGRAM!

Have you struggled with living out your faith at work?

Can you be “on mission for God” while working in the marketplace?

What if we viewed our work as worship? What kind of a life change would that produce in you? How would that impact the people around you at work and in your home?

The goal of E4 WORKLIFE: Work as Worship is for you to experience a paradigm shift in integrating your faith and work as you begin to view your work as worship. Let’s recapture and live out the concept of “Avodah,” a Hebrew word which translates to both work and worship.

Workers who view their work as worship are

  • Excellent
  • Ethical
  • Engaging
  • Evangelistic

Key Outcomes & Benefits of the E4 program:

  • Understand the biblical view of work
  • Develop a plan to incorporate the 4 E’s into your everyday work life
  • Accountability
  • How to be blessed in your work life
  • Live out your faith at work
  • Resources and tools to incorporate the 4E ‘s in your everyday work life

If you are a job seeker, your Work Life is your current job search and future employment opportunity. This “pause” in your employment could be the perfect time to change your perspective.

The brown bag series will meet for 3 lunches, once every two weeks. Each session consists of:

  • 2 – 40 minute podcasts by Hill Country Bible Church lead teaching pastor, Tim Hawks. You will listen to both podcasts before our lunch, using a listening guide we provide.
  • Discussion questions and accountability time with others on the same journey
  • Resources to help you apply what you are learning into your everyday work life through out the week

This program is free. Just sign up, listen to the podcasts, fill in the listening guides, get ready for some great discussion and bring your lunch each day.
