Work as Worship Retreat

Church of the Cross United Methodist

3121 Wilmington Pike, Kettering, Ohio 45429

February 23, 2018


God has a purpose for us on this earth. Our calling is to be in mission with God where God has placed us. Since many people spend the majority of their waking hours on the job, we need to stop compartmentalizing life into “spiritual activities” and “work activities.” How are we living examples of the gospel while we work?


You’re invited to the 2018 Work as Worship Retreat, where eleven influential business leaders and pastors will discuss what it looks like to connect faith and work. Taking place as a 1–Day Local Church Retreat on February 23, 2018, the live event in Dallas will be web-streamed to over 2,000 churches around the world. Church of the Cross UM at 3121 Wilmington Pike in Kettering will be one of the satellite locations. The day’s events will be held in the sanctuary beginning at 8:30am and will conclude at 3:30pm.


Join Patrick Lencioni (Author, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team), Joel Manby (CEO, SeaWorld), Phil Vischer (Creator, VeggieTales and Jellyfish Labs), Wendy Davidson (President, US Specialty Channels Kellogg Company), Anne Beiler, (Founder, Auntie Anne’s and author of Twist of Faith), Matt Chandler (Lead Pastor, The Village Church), and others in a day filled with real-life stories, biblical teaching, and practical wisdom that will equip Christians in the marketplace to see their work as an opportunity to care for their families, fulfill their calling, and bring glory to God.
