Many books stress the need to be “marketplace ministers.” An equal or greater number tell us why we should be in marketplace ministry. This book tells us how. About My Father’s Business offers proven methodology for becoming a spiritual leader at work, regardless of position or title. Regi Campbell has more than twenty years experience learning and implementing these strategies in companies small and large. With refreshing transparency, he shares his struggles to save his marriage, build his career, and pursue his mission to have influence for Jesus Christ with coworkers. The result is a practical guide for reconciling the quest for corporate accomplishment with the call to be a disciple of Christ 24/7.
What happens to your faith at work? Do you struggle to live for Jesus while earning a paycheck?
The truth is, when you go to work, you don’t have to check your faith at the door. Successful businessman Regi Campbell shows how your witness and your example can make a huge difference in your workplace and impact lives for eternity.
God is calling you to more than what’s in your job description. Your peers need it. Your Father requires it. It’s His business and only you can accomplish it.
