In the beginning… God worked. Work was done by a holy and perfect being. Do you think we’ll be lounging around on clouds in Heaven? No – we’ll work together with jobs and projects that fit us perfectly. Work was meant to be life-giving! Since sin entered the world, work has changed. At one point or another you’ve probably experienced the Sunday evening blues, you’ve questioned if there was any purpose to your job, and you’ve wondered how your faith has any place in corporate America. This conference will invigorate you to join God’s restorative plan and will equip Richmond’s churches to reclaim faith, hope, and love at work.
