Why Christians must see Office Space

I love The Church. Whether its in our neighborhoods, at the office or around the world the mission of The Church truly does matter. 

All of these "spaces" are invaluable places to trade in the pursuit of the American dream to use our passions and skills to reach a world that desperately needs Christ.

But the "Office Space" is particularly important because its the space where people spend most of their time and its the space where the professional church staff has the least direct contact.

Let's assume the average work week is 40 hours. Lets also say the average amount of time a person in the spends on church sponsored ministry activities is around 3 hours a week.That adds up to about 120 hours, compared to the 2,080 hours they'll spend in the "office space" over the next 12 months.

That's means that in one year we'll have almost 20 times as many opportunities for ministry in the office space.

So much untapped potential. We haven't even begun to to scratch the ceiling of how far the Christian movement can go if we start embracing work as an opportunity for worship.
