I am going to interrupt my series on Christian business lessons from Joshua to celebrate! Exactly one year ago, I started this blog with no clue what would come of it! I knew I had a lot of pent-up thoughts and ideas from my experience trying to run our business as a platform for Christian ministry. I knew I wanted to try to get that message out to other Christian business owners and leaders. I did NOT know if it would work or not!
Well, as we all know (and often forget!), if we will surrender to God and just follow His lead, then we will usually find that He will surprise us! I can tell you from the past 12 months of doing this blog – this is still true! God is amazing and is able to show off!
Here is my original purpose in writing this blog:
I have started a new blog called Christian Faith At Work. I am writing it to business owners and leaders who are trying to figure out how to integrate their Christian faith into their businesses.
By including the resources I have accumulated over the past eight years of learning to use my business as a vehicle for ministry, as well as real-life examples from my experiences, I will teach the readers how to run their business from an eternal perspective.
They will not only learn from the resources I have gathered, but they can also interact with someone who is actually doing it, learning from my mistakes and victories.
Some Interesting Statistics
Here are some stats from the first 12 months:
Just for kicks, here are the same stats from 6 months ago!
I love looking at the growth over time, especially when I see results that cannot be quantified with statistics. One of my favorites is the opportunity God has brought in the form of a new friend in Chandigarh, India.
My friend Rajeev is a pastor and evangelist in Northern India. God has put us together for a specific purpose. I go into a little more detail here, but the bottom line is that I have been given the opportunity to teach believers in India (via Skype) on two separate occasions about taking their faith into the workplace!
Right now, we are planning a third session where the audience is made up of pastors! This way, we can multiply the teaching! If you had told me six months ago that this was going to happen, I would have laughed at you! I cannot wait to see where God takes it from here.
Here are the top ten posts after one year:
If you are new to this blog, I encourage you to stick around for a while and see if there is anything you can take from it to apply in your workplace. If you have been here awhile, I thank you for your support! I pray you have learned something during your time here.
Give me your thoughts about the material you have enjoyed the most to this point.
Also tell me what you would like to see more of in the coming months!
