About Patheos Faith and Work Channel

The Patheos Faith and Work Channel is a place where conversation happens about work and faith. We talk about all sorts of things: daily life in the workplace, what the Bible says about work and vocation, economic systems and their relationship to Christian beliefs, how to know if God is calling you to a specific job, and how the local church can better equip workers. We draw on content from many other websites pondering these issues to find stories, testimonies, tips, biblical wisdom, and challenges for individuals, businesses, pastors, and civic leaders as we work to create a society where God's economy brings human flourishing for all.
You can listen to the vision as expressed by our leadership and content partners here, and we also invite you to check out some of the great blogs on issues of faithfulness in daily life hosted by our friends at the Patheos Evangelical Channel.
