On January 31, Covenant Life Church will be hosting the Gospel At Work conference, an event designed to help Christians live extraordinary, gospel-centered lives in their workplaces. If you wrestle with questions about your work, or if you want to learn to work with excellence and find the true meaning of success (Col. 3:23-24), then this conference is for you.
Pastor Corby Megorden is one of the prime movers at Covenant Life Church in bringing this conference to the DC area. Please join us this Tuesday, Dec. 16, to hear Corby give us a preview of the conference and join an interactive discussion of how the gospel gives meaning and purpose to our work and to those around us in our workplaces.
Why have a conference on work? Here are a couple of reasons:
- Most people spend at least 80,000 hours of their lives working. Wouldn’t you like to know how to worship God with that time? The Gospel at Work conference will help you think biblically about your work. Speakers will provide practical wisdom on how to approach the challenges you face in the workplace and offer insight into God’s concern for your work.
- You’ll also meet godly men and women from a variety of industries for a series of very practical discussions on topics like career planning as Christians, leading in the workplace and business as a mission field.
Please come and be encouraged to strive for excellence in your work! Registration is open.
WHEN: Tuesday, December 16, 2014, 6:45 – 8:00 AM at Seneca Creek Community Church, 13 Firstfield Road, Ste 100, Gaithersburg, MD 20878. Please note that the facility looks like an office building. See location & directions. The program will begin at 7:00 AM and end promptly at 8:00 AM.

He served seven years active duty and 15 years in the Naval Reserves, retiring with the rank of captain. While pursuing a successful career in the corporate world, Corby began serving in the biblical counseling ministry at Covenant Life Church as a volunteer. After the pastors asked him to consider pastoral ministry, Corby went through a two-year process of evaluation, prayer, and seeking counsel, entering the Pastors College in 2001 at age 43. Upon graduation in 2002, he joined the pastoral staff as an administrator. Corby says he loves “the opportunity to serve the pastoral team behind the scenes… [and] to release them to exercise their gifts in their ministry areas.” Corby and Vilma have two daughters and reside in the Gaithersburg area.
Colossians 3:23-24 Whatever you are doing, work at it with enthusiasm, as to the Lord and not for people, because you know that you will receive your inheritance from the Lord as the reward. Serve the Lord Christ.
