Webinar Description

Whether or not our work is related to a title or paycheck, the work that we commit ourselves to takes time and energy. Additionally, this past year has caused many of us to revisit our sense of calling. For these reasons, we want to pause to reflect and gain a clear perspective on where God and meaning are in our work.

This event features Michaela O’Donnell, Executive Director of the Fuller DePree Center for Leadership and the author of her new book, Make Work Matter. During our time together, we will discuss how to:

  1. make sense of our work,
  2. find purpose in the seemingly ordinary, and
  3. pursue meaningful work in an ever-changing world
