As Christian business people come together at Kiros — we not only represent men and women from diverse vocational backgrounds committed to expressing our faith through our work — we also reflect a collection of many local churches coming together; the church ‘united’; the church ‘at work’.
By connecting, encouraging and equipping — Kiros seeks to support the sacred mandate given to the corporate church to go and positivity impact the harvest field of the marketplace.
Our focus is to partner with churches by providing a better understanding around how Christian principles can be faithfully, effectively and practically applied in our places of work on a daily basis. This applies as much to the nature of ‘what’ we as Christians do for work as well as ‘how’ we go about it — our conduct, morals and ethics.
In short, as ‘one’ church, we have a great opportunity and responsibility to do Christ’s work in the marketplace. You can assist the work of Kiros in supporting your local church in the following ways:
A number of churches are already partnering with us in this way. This is what a few of them have to say.
“Christian business persons need support, connection and wisdom to effectively integrate their faith into their vocation. Kiros offers all this and more, helping Christian business persons appreciate their work as a place of ministry, and equipping them to authentically live their faith at their work. I am deeply grateful that the light of Christ is shining more brightly in the marketplace because of the ministry of Kiros.”
“We are to honor God in the work He has given us to do, in a way that pleases Him. Working with and reshaping what God has already created is an important task. It pleases Him. It matters to Him. I love how Kiros has supported the inherent value of work by creating a forum where business people can live out that value in community.”
“Equipping the Marketplace for Kingdom works of service is front and center in the purposes of God. Having attended Kiros on numerous occasions I do not know anyone who does a better job to train and connect Christian business people thereby validating their workplace calling.”
“A great place where work and faith meet”. I believe more than ever business people need support in the marketplace. Kiros meetings strengthen the calling all of us have in and through our work. I would highly recommend Kiros to anyone working in the marketplace because of the authentic and quality relationships that develop there. John and Cosette Pfaff are really great people you ought to come and meet them.
