Ministry at Work

Two Men Enjoying CoffeeMinistry at work shares resources drawn from CMN’s belief in the goodness of God in creation, and our agency’s testimony of being met by God’s grace in the world of work.  However, we also offer resources for agencies and congregations responding to the many people, communities and companies burdened by deeply rooted experiences of injustice and suffering at work, that cry out for healing, justice and reconciliation.

These resources demonstrate a conviction that Christ calls the church to God’s mission and ministry in the world to restore God’s image in human beings, and to embody Christ’s peaceable social order in every sphere of life.
