Better Workers, Better Leaders: The Church’s Role (Denver)

Presenters: Zachary Ritvalsky, Jason Janz
February 21 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm MST
CrossPurpose, 3705 Martin Luther King Blvd.
Denver, CO 80205 United States

The gospel of Jesus takes the disenfranchised, the frustrated, and the forgotten and makes them value creators for the benefit of others.
The church of Jesus - scattered and gathered - has the beautiful responsibility of facilitating this movement for everyday image-bearers of God.

Join us to unpack this vision and find tangible ways to engage it here in Denver.

Dayton Lunch and Learn (Cincinnati/Dayton)

Presenter: Kevin Schwieger
February 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST
Fairhaven Church, 637 East Whipp Road
Centerville, OH 45459 United States

Imagine outreach ministry that creates fresh avenues for evangelism and discipleship, reaches people that traditional outreach initiatives would miss, and brings new people to a congregation who would normally bypass local church altogether.
Our guest speaker, Pastor Kevin Schwieger, grew up as a missionary kid, born to third generation missionary parents in Kenya, Africa. He has been a missionary himself with Athletes in Action (Campus Crusade for Christ), as well as a church planter.

Kevin is now harnessing Greater Cincinnati’s marketplace as a mission field. An Associate Pastor creatively deployed in the private sector, Kevin is coming alongside Christian entrepreneurs to disciple them in their vocational work, and creatively evangelize customers and employees.

Kevin’s results have been dramatic and life-changing. Come hear some of his stories, and leave with a far deeper appreciation for the power of outreach ministry through the marketplace.

How can we bring our work to God as a sacrifice of praise in the sanctuary?
