Sign up for vocational discipleship group by Saturday

Monday, September 26th, 2022

Organizations and institutions can seem cold and inhuman, somehow disconnected from the lives we lead. But the reality, especially in modern society, is that most of us are organizational beings. We work in companies or other types of institutions. We are members of churches and other civic organizations.

Join us this semester to explore “God’s Purpose for your Organizational Life.” Over seven meetings, we will seek to uncover some surprising biblical truths about human institutions. In the process, we also discover that our lives can be more fully imbued with God’s purposes when we begin to appreciate that he is not just interested in our individual and family lives, but also our organizational lives.

This group is a great opportunity for students (graduate and undergraduate) who want to explore the integration of faith, work and vocation!

No outside preparation is needed. All meetings will include a free catered dinner. Email Travis Pickell at  tpickell@georgefox.edu by Saturday, Oct. 1, if you are interested. (Space is limited to 12 students, so do not delay!)

Meetings will be held on Oct. 11, Oct. 25, Nov. 1, Nov. 8, Nov. 22, Nov. 29 and Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. Location to be decided.
