September 25–27 marks the beginning of a series of events you will not want to miss. Tom Nelson, pastor of Christ Community Church, will speak in Trinity College and Divinity School chapels on Wednesday and Thursday. He will also join Steve Garber as they jointly dialogue with various student, faculty, and staff groups.
Tom Nelson is the author of Work Matters: Connecting Sunday Worship to Monday Work. Steve Garber is, among other things, the founder and principal of the Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation, and Culture.
Both Tom and Steve have dedicated significant portions of their ministries to articulating a theology of vocation, a biblical vision for stewardship of one’s work that overcomes the oft-assumed divide between “secular” and “sacred” spheres. They are committed to developing church leaders who teach a consistent vision of work as ministry, especially with regard to lines of work that are not often considered “ministry.”
As mentioned above,their presence on campus is the first in a series of events resulting from a grant from the Kern Foundation that has made possible a year-long partnership with the Oikonomia Network, a network of pastors, university leaders, and educators dedicated to teaching a biblical vision of holistic vocation and stewardship. For more information on the Oikonomia Network and other upcoming events resulting from this partnership, please visit www.tiu.edu/stewardship.
