New Video Story of Chick-fil-A Owner Viewing Work as an Opportunity for Worship



Chick-fil-A
Click the link below to watch the 2 Minute Video Story
In the book Marketplace Christianity, the author Robert Fraser describes Marketplace Christians as a  "People without Heroes".

 Robert goes on to say that all of our modern Christian heroes are vocational ministers: Charles Wesley, Calvin, Finney, Jonathan Edwards, Mother Theresa or today it may be John Piper, Francis Chan or Max Lucado.

In contrast most Biblical heroes were not priests. Abraham was a rancher and a businessman. Joseph a skilled businessman and administrator. Joshua and Caleb were generals. David a shepherd, a general and a king. Daniel and Nehemiah were government administrators and Paul had many professions.

But these Biblical heroes have been interpreted through the eyes of modern day priests and they have been stripped of their marketplace identity.

Tragically without such heroes we have abdicated spiritual greatness to the priests. We must tell the story of modern day Abraham's, Nehemiah's and Josephs.

With that thought in mind, our RightNow team spent a day with Jeff, an operator of 3 Chick-fil-A stores who strives to view every interaction with a customer and every employee as an opportunity to use the time and talents he's been given as an opportunity to make a difference.

This 2 minute video was shown to 2,000 pastors at our RightNow Conference this fall and will be seen by over 20,000 church leaders in the coming year. Our hope is that stories like these would give people a model of what it looks like to view Work as an Opportunity for Worship.
