Faith at Work: Made to Flourish


Disciples of Jesus Christ have been and are being transformed as they live under the Lordship of Christ. These disciples proclaim the gospel with their lips and their lives.

This training track will focus on the implications of worship and life specifically at the intersection of faith and work as we connect Sunday with the rest of the week. This training will:

  • Raise awareness about human flourishing under the Lordship of Christ through the integration of faith and work
  • Develop a theology of work to provide contextualized resources for pastors, leaders and congregations
  • Illustrate this theology of work in action through testimonies
  • Cultivate rich and catalytic conversations to engage churches
  • Provide an opportunity for a grant to implement a strategic ministry plan integrating faith and work in the local church where you serve

This track is intended for pastors, leaders and all others who desire to live faithfully and fully where God has placed them vocationally. Although each individual session can be attended as a stand-alone session, the greatest benefit of learning and implementation keys will be gained by attending all sessions.


Session 1 – Wednesday, 10:30-Noon

Biblical/Theological (with a pastoral application focus) – Constantine Campbell, TEDS, Associate Professor of New Testament

Session 2 – Wednesday, 3:00-4:30

 Pastoral Practice (with a biblical/theological grounding) – Tom Nelson, Senior Pastor, Christ Community

Session 3 – Thursday, 10:30-Noon

Implementation: Testimonies and Kern Grants – Gary Hoag, Generosity Monk

Donald Guthrie, M/C Facilitator, TEDS, Director of the PhD (Educational Studies), Professor of Educational Ministries and The Jeanette L. Hsieh Chair of Educational Leadership

Please plan to join us for this wonderfully rich time of learning!


Greg Strand


Affectionately called “Walking Bible” by his youngest daughter, Greg Strand has a ministry history that goes back to 1982. Since that time, he has served in local church ministry in a variety of ministry capacities: youth pastor, associate pastor of adult ministries and senior pastor. He is currently the EFCA's Executive Director of Theology and Credentialing. Greg reads voraciously and never stops learning — a passion reflected in the overflowing bookshelves that spill from his library to multiple offices. And he could tell you about each of those books! His hunger for learning pales in contrast to his great love for God and for teaching the Word of God.
