6 More Ideas for Your Church to Economically Empower Your Congregation and Community

Last week I wrote a post “7 Great Ideas for Your Church to Economically Empower Your Congregation and Community” The key thing to remember about all these ideas is that the pastor doesn’t have to do them all or lead every effort. It’s time to strategically engage the businesspeople and professionals in your church who would be more than happy to share their expertise with their fellow church members and the community.

Here are 6 more ideas…

  1. Conduct job search/career development workshops facilitated by HR experts from the church
  2. Connect with multiple churches to host a job fair
  3. Develop a listing of members with their trade/skill and publish a directory
  4. Generate revenue for a career services program by selling ads to the business owners (see #3)
  5. Faith-based business workshops
  6. Invite speakers from local jobs-related programs

What has your church done to help to economically empower your congregation and community?

Fulfill your purpose in 3D!

Are you aware that up to 97% of Christians surveyed disclose that they don’t hear sermons or messages that specifically connect their work life to their spiritual life? Are you one of them? If so, Dream B.I.G. in 3D will be the missing link for you to activate your gifts, find your niche, and fulfill God’s calling for you in the workplace.

Worship While You W.O.R.K.

Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 4:11

In the dictionary, worship means “to show reverence and adoration“. A true understanding of the worship of God is that it’s more than just showing reverence and adoration in a religious ceremony, but it’s a lifestyle of acknowledgement, adoration, and alignment with His plans and expectations. That lifestyle includes the work you do on a daily basis.

So as you go to work everyday as an employee or entrepreneur, the best way to view your work is that it should be… Worship Of the Real King!

Here’s some practical examples of what this looks like…

  • Work in spirit and truth – Work while continually acknowledging God for the strength, creativity, and ability He gives you to work (John 4:23)
  • Work in the beauty of holiness – It’s a beautifully holy act to work with excellence and dedicate your work to the Lord, not just as something to do to make a living or please someone else (Psalm 96:9)
  • Work in your lane – Stay true to His purpose and calling for your life (Proverbs 4:25)
  • Work with excellence Be the best. Set the standard of leadership (Daniel 5:14)
  • Work with diligence – Work hard and smart (Proverbs 10:5)
  • Work with creativity – Use the ideas, strategies, and concepts God provides through prayer and revelation (Proverbs 8:12)
  • Work with integrity – Let all your dealings be above reproach (Proverbs 11:1)
  • Work with passion – Let your zeal for God energize your work (Romans 12:11)
  • Work toward reconciliation – Take advantage of daily opportunities for life on life discipleship (2 Corinthians 5:19)

Today is a marvelous day for you to be transformed in the way you think about your work. Honor God in your work and you will experience Him in a whole new way!

Live Passionately!
