Challenges we address

The challenges that Call42 are attempting to address come from the top challenges identified in the Call42 survey.

Overall challenges:

• People still see Christianity and their workplace as two separate worlds
• Applying the theory behind a purposeful life at work seems to be a major issue
• Material, initiatives, and business groups exist but people do not know of these
• People still see Christianity and their workplace as two separate worlds
• In the context of work, people do not understand calling

Some well-defined needs:

• At work, there’s a need for Christian mentors and role models who lead a way
• Christians want to know how to live their calling at work practically
• People want to hear personal testimonies on this topic of God at work
• Books and teaching material on the topic are not readily available or always helpful
• Christians do not know how to deal with diverse cultures and viewpoints at work

What are current solutions?

• Stakeholders could collaborate and network with current workplace ministries
• Learn from examples of Kingdom-focused companies and leaders
• Business support groups can assist people to live and apply Christianity at work

Viewpoint of church leaders:

• Church leaders do not feel equipped to serve people at work
• Church leaders have limited exposure to the reality of work environments
• The role of the church is not well-defined in workplace ministry
• Church leaders do recognise a need to focus more on serving people at work
• Changing mindsets and creating awareness are priorities for workplace ministers
• Church leaders still see spreading the gospel the top priority for working people
