A Vision for Workplace Ministry

Speaker: Mark Greene, ED of the Institute of Contemporary Christianity

DATE: 17 June 2009 (Wednesday)
TIME: 8-10pm
VENUE:
First Baptist Church
Lot 8, Jalan Pantai 9/7,
46000 Petaling Jaya.

Mark Greene used to work in advertising before his current position as Executive Director of the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity. As an international speaker his pet subjects include Biblical perspectives on contemporary culture, communication, and workplace ministry. He is the author of several highly-acclaimed
books, including Thank God It’s Monday (Scripture Union 2004) and is a regular culture columnist for the UK’s Christianity magazine.

Mark has a broader commitment to seeing God's people envisioned and supported for whatever context they find themselves in - culminating in whole-life discipleship to Christ - and the ongoing vision of LICC to make whole-life discipleship unavoidable and central for the Church.

Mark has degrees in Hebrew from Cambridge, Theology from LBC and Communications and Media from Edinburgh. He is married to Katriina and they have three children.

SESSION 1:
Biblical Foundations: Your Work in the Big Picture Why work matters to God and how daily work fits into God's purposes for time and eternity. It explores work in the
beginning, work through the lens of Jesus' work on the Cross and in the context of the consummation to come.

SESSION 2:
'Work = A place of Ministry & Mission' Ministry and evangelism in the workplace. In the West many Christians who know that their work is for God lose any intentional focus on evangelism . Also, how do we glorify God in the workplace.
