Faith and Work

Your Work and the Kingdom – A new curriculum

The Presbyterian College is in the final stages of preparing a new curriculum to be used by congregational study groups or by individuals. We think this curriculum, including relevant videos and a study guide, will offer you an exciting and creative way to help you integrate faith and work—to explore your everyday work as participation in the mission of God. 

Here is a sneak peak, of Session 2 of the new curriculum. The study guide is here.

The relevant video is below.

Work and Worship – Resources for Pastors and Worship Leaders

Most members of congregations participate in the mission of God primarily through their everyday work. But there’s a challenge for all of us because we continue to live with these odd dualisms:

Science // Religion
Secular // Sacred
Facts // Values
Public // Private
Work // Worship

This means that work and worship are relegated to different parts of our lives—as if they don’t have much to do with each other. But we know that these dualisms don’

t work any more; as if they ever did. We have to find ways to bring everyday work into worship. Another way to put it: Workers should feel like they can bring their work to worship.

The College has prepared resources for the integration of work and worship: Prayers, Sermon Ideas, Creative Activities, Children’s Times, Litanies. There are enough resources here to lead four services on the theme of work. Or you can distribute these resources through many services. 

We hope you and those alongside whom you worship will be blessed by this resource.

Program Areas

The Leadership Centre of the college was established in 2015, in response to a need to support young and newly ordained pastoral leaders—the Mentoring Program was its beginning. Since that time we have worked to support the life and leadership of congregations and individuals through programs in the area of discernment, of faith and work, and of congregational vitality.

“This is our time on the history line of God. This is it. What will we do with the one deep exhale of God on this earth? For we are but a vapor and we have to make it count. We’re on. Direct us, Lord, and get us on our feet.” — Beth Moore
