Christian businessI am a strong believer in the great need for Christian business owners and leaders to begin integrating their Christian faith and their businesses. I do not think enough people are thinking this way, so I write this blog in an effort to get the message out.

As part of this effort, I often include practical ways to do ministry in the normal course of doing business. The following is a list of 7 easy ways to get started. Each item on this list is something we are already doing and is further described in separate post. The link to each post is included in each brief description. At the end of this list, I will tell you how to find another 101 ideas!

7 Easy Ways To Integrate Faith and Work

1. Christian mission statement

    This is so crucial that it really should be the first thing you do. A mission statement that acknowledges your business as a Christian business not only tells others what you are about, but also serves to keep you on track for years to come.

4. Employee Newsletter

    Communication is critical for any business. This is especially true for a Christian business. You can easily improve your company-wide communication through the use of a company newsletter. Using even the simplest of newsletters to convey a Biblical message or promote Christian values can bear fruit. Read more here – Advice from Coach Wooden.

5. Message at company gatherings

    Company gatherings, such as Christmas parties, can be an excellent opportunity for the Christian business owner or leader to reinforce the mission of the company. An easy way to do this is to carve out 10-15 minutes or so and tell a story or interesting illustration that conveys the Gospel message. While the first time may be uncomfortable, God will honor your efforts. Read more here – Christ and the Company Christmas Party.

6. Message to customers

    Different companies will have varying opportunities to share the Gospel with customers. For us, including a copy of the New Testament, with a cover that reads “Owner’s Manual For Life”, in the glove box of every car we sell seemed like an easy way to accomplish this.

7. Chaplain program

  1. Availability and visibility are keys from my perspective. To see praying and sharing opportunities inspire those witnessing the acts to ask questions. Everyday there are opportunities to respond. 1 Peter 3:15 (always prepared to give the reason for the hope we have…) The Bible in the car, the music in the showroom, the presence of the company chaplain, and the wrist band I wear all open up conversations that provide opportunities while business is conducted. The key I believe is beginning each day knowing “why” we do what we do is more important than the what and how and when. Thanks Chris for demonstrating the atmosphere that emphasizes the why priority each day.

  3. Great topic for your Blog and I commend you for your passion. I have long thought about this topic and landed on the idea that excellence is the key to both. Excellence in work and excellence in faith, together, comprise the solution to our fallen free market system. Doing great work, peak performance, combined with excellence in faith- The Golden Rule and the Second Great Commandment, to me will transform the marketplace as Christians in business, government and education bring both to bear.
