Centers, institutes, nonprofits, universities and research organizations committed to the conversation about work and faith are increasing rapidly. As the conversation grows, ACU’s Center for Vocational Formation is committed to partner and collaborate with organizations interested and invested in this work. Our work is better when learn with and from others pursuing God’s longing for the world to be a place where humans flourish.
THE BARNA GROUP
Christians at Work, based on a Barna Group study conducted in partnership with ACU, offers a broad and introspective assessment of a sense of vocation in the church, specifically through one’s employment. In addition to new findings about how Christians engage with their calling and career, this report includes full-color infographics, interviews with practitioners and leaders in a variety of industries, and an introduction to the various models of faith and work integration.
Christians at Work is a timely, thorough resource to equip church leaders for more effective vocational discipleship, and will in turn empower Christians to embrace their callings and make a difference through their professions.
