Transforming the Workplace into a Mission Field (Richmond)

Presenters: Jim Brangenberg, Martha Brangenberg
March 16 @ 8:58 pm EDT
Real Life Center for Entrepreneurial and Leadership Excellence, 14702 Village Square Place
Midlothian, VA 23112 United States

This month’s guest speakers to MTF Richmond are Jim and Martha Brangenberg with iWork4Him.com. Both committed their lives to full-time Christian ministry as teenagers.  After marrying they believed “full-time ministry meant being a pastor” and going to seminary, but God had a different plan.   As entrepreneurs and business owners they came to understand that their workplace was their mission field and that their work was just as significant as the calling of their pastor or missionary friends.  God answered the prayer of how to reach others with this same message, and on April 15, 2013 the very first iWork4Him Radio program was aired.  

Together, Jim and Martha host the iWork4Him show and thousands are being challenged every day around the world with the simple message of “Your workplace is your mission field no matter what you do. In that mission field, you may be the only Jesus your co-workers or employees may ever meet.”

Presenter: Dominique Gilliard

Firestone Learning Center, 470 Castle Blvd
Akron, OH 44313 United States

Since 1970, the prison population has grown by 700%, giving the US the largest prison population in the world. And while women are the fastest growing prison demographic, people of color have been up to 10 times more likely to be in jail or prison than their white counterparts for the last 40 years. What role has Christianity played in the evolution and expansion of this prison-industrial complex? How can we help bring healing and restoration? Join us as author Dominique Gilliard, along with individuals on both sides of the justice system, discuss creative solutions to mass incarceration that the church can participate in. Who cares? We do.

Relationship Building During Times of Crisis – The Scattered Church (Richmond and Hampton Roads)

Presenters: Pastor Natalie Chamberlain, Bishop Designate Gail Roberts-House, Pastor Justin House
April 3 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Join us, Hampton Roads and Richmond Made To Flourish City Networks, as we have a discussion with Pastor Justin House (Richmond,Va.), Bishop Designate Gail Roberts-House (Hampton, Va) and Pastor Natalie Chamberlain (Newport News, Va) as we talk about "Relationship Building During Times of Crisis". How do we "manage" the Scattered Church. What does community look like when we have turned the lights off, locked the doors and their is no more socialization within the context of the institutional Church.

Will "social distancing" erode the institutional gathered church and perpetuate a smaller relational scattered church since people are now communicating and caring for one another without direct pastoral oversight. Will these informal networks and groups become formalized based on needs and desires that were previously unknown?
