Deepen the connection between the unabridged gospel and your work with other Christians in your vocational field

What does it look like practically for the unabridged gospel to shape your specific work?

You're not a pastor, "full-time missionary," or religious professional. You're a mere Christian who works as an entrepreneur, writer, photographer, landscaper, or coach. 

You love the work God has called you to do and you want to do it with excellence and in a distinctly Christ-like way. But it's hard to know what that looks like practically for your specific vocation.

  • If you work for yourself, you want to know how to manage the tension between trusting God and hustling to produce results in your business.
  • If you work from home, you want to know how your job matters for eternity when your opportunities to share the gospel are few and far between.
  • If you work as a manager, you want to know how you can extend mercy to your team without neglecting the call for excellence from your heavenly and earthly bosses.

These types of questions are where the rubber meets the proverbial road. But in my experience, it’s almost impossible to answer them without being connected to other Christ-followers who do similar work.

That’s why I created the Mere Christians Community: to help you deepen the connection between the gospel and your specific work alongside other Christians in your vocational field.

What You Get

I give members of the Mere Christians Community everything I think you need to apply the gospel to your work! Specifically...

Vocational Small Groups

A small group of people who share your vocation and commitment to Jesus. Your group will meet virtually twice a month to workshop workplace challenges, pray for each other, and discuss questions like "What is the work beneath your work? And how can the gospel free you from it?" and "What’s the most significant way that your work has changed as a result of following Jesus?"

#3: Office Hours with yours truly

I love showing-up for these monthly Zooms where you get the chance to ask me absolutely anything that's on your heart! Over the past 3 months, I’ve weighed in on questions ranging from how to love a coworker who refuses to talk to you, to how to know if your identity is in your work rather than Christ. Here's a clip of one of my favorite questions from Linda, a CEO of a large non-profit, who asked me how I cultivate candor and other things I want to see in an organization’s culture.

Got something that you'd like to ask me on our next Office Hours call? Join the Mere Christians Community today!


Free Bonus: The Mere Christians Mixtape!

I've dug up 50+ of the best gems from the Mere Christians podcast that you'll want to listen to again and again.

One of the things I hate about podcasts is that I can’t easily “highlight” or clip the best content like I can in a book.

There are a lot of these gold nuggets buried in the Mere Christians podcast that I would love to listen to again. I’m willing to bet you feel the same way.

That’s why my team and I did the hard work of digging up these gems of content for you and releasing them in a new podcast we’re calling the Mere Christians Mixtape!

The Mere Christians Mixtape includes more than 50 of the best 2-5 minute clips of the Mere Christians podcast so that you can quickly and easily renew your mind with what God’s Word says about your work including:

  • Tim Keller (Fmr. Pastor) on why you are better positioned to make disciples than the missionary on your refrigerator
  • Tony Dungy (NFL Hall of Famer) on the freeing difference between impact and influence
  • Ruth Chou Simons (Artist) on rest as the silver bullet to effectiveness
  • Dr. Francis Collins (Fmr. Director of NIH) on loving your enemies at work
  • Aarti Sequeira (Food Network Host) on how even cooking can be worship

You can not find the Mere Christians Mixtape by searching for it. The only way to access the private podcast is by joining the Mere Christians Community before 11:59 p.m. EST on Friday!
