People At Work: Preparing To Be The Whole Church

The Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization is a global gathering of leaders from around the world. A few weeks ago, the third congress was held in Cape Town. 
Many who attended mentioned there wasn't anything new presented in the area of Work as Worship but I thought I'd share a few links to some videos and papers from the congress. 

Willy Kotiuga presented the paper, People At Work: Preparing To Be The Whole Church. 

Editor’s Note: This Cape Town 2010 Advance Paper has been written by Willy Kotiuga as an overview of the topic to be discussed at the Multiplex session on “Preparing Your Marketplace for a Faith Journey.” Responses to this paper through the Lausanne Global Conversation will be fed back to the author and others to help shape their final presentations at the Congress.

About the Paper:
One of the largest ‘unactivated’ peoples’ groups that spans across all nations and continents is the workplace where most of the world’s populations is actively engaged in earning income to support their families. Within all segments of the workplace are believers who have a personal relationship with God. Some are extremely effective in using their workplace to invite others to join them on their journey while for others work is a place where faith shapes their behavior but not much more. The fields are ripe unto harvest and in the workplace there are many harvesters but only a small percentage are fully engaged in proclaiming hope to a world looking for hope.
While there is little disagreement on the theology of being salt and light where we are planted, the reality of our current situation is that we have fallen short in our passion to live out our responsibility to declare Jesus Christ as Savior. In this paper we explore where we are today, highlight the many positive developments in workplace ministry and look at the barriers to getting where God would like us to be so that there is sustainable development in properly equipping the believers in the workplace to do what God has called them to do.
