Discipleship with Monday in Mind at The Gospel Coalition

The gospel speaks into every nook and cranny of life, including the work we’re called by God to embrace for his glory and the furtherance of the common good. Tragically, many church leaders fail to adequately equip congregants for their vocational callings. What’s really at stake when our gospel-centered churches fail to connect Sunday worship with Monday work? What changes will lead to greater pastoral faithfulness and more flourishing congregations?

In this talk given at The Gospel Coalition’s (TGC) 2017 national conference by Tom Nelson, president of Made to Flourish, explored practical ways church leaders can more fully embrace whole-life congregational discipleship.
