Faith For Work

Biblical Business Training

More than 10 years ago, two people had an aspiration and felt called to start a Bible study at work. Today, it is a movement for serving Bible study leaders. Together we will explore stories of extraordinary people applying everyday faith while living and leading in today's workplace. You will hear about their challenges, victories, and their vision to leave a legacy that equips, empowers, and encourages others. Included in this podcast will be a wide range of devoted, Christian community advocates. Join us and be inspired by their Faith for Work journeys. This podcast is hosted by the ministry of Biblical Business Training (BBT). Learn more at B-B-T.org and join the BBT movement!

Kingdom Work: Activating Communities
By dreaming of the impossible-made-possible with an emphasis on mentorship, Anthony Meyer's innovative approach to leaving a legacy enhances his Kingdom Work. Anthony's unconventional path to ministry and peacemaking allows him to understand peoples' needs and struggles while he's pouring into them. He sees the future of the Church in corporate spaces, not necessarily in churches on the weekend, because people live most of their lives outside church walls. He challenges himself and others to activate our communities through listening, thinking, and asking differently while bringing Biblical principles into the workplace. We learn about honor, respect, and integrity on Sunday, but are we applying and bringing these principles to the workplace on Monday?
