Millions of Christians around the world look good on Sunday but switch off from God on Monday, says ‘Monday Morning Atheist’ co-author and Worklife founder and CEO Doug Spada, who will be speaking at a city breakfast at Harvest Christian Church, Port Elizabeth on Saturday, March 15.
Once you learn how to keep God switched on you can find your destiny in the workplace and experience joy in everything that God has for you at work, says the decorated United States military veteran and former businessman whose worldwide Worklife ministry grew out of a journey of personal discovery.
“The way I got interested in why Christians switch God off at work is because I saw it in my own life,” he says. Spada researched the issue for eight years and discovered that disconnection with God at work is an epidemic in the Body of Christ.
Over the past 10 years of helping people around the world to “switch God on at work”, Spada is convinced that for the majority of people the workplace provides the greatest opportunity to make a spiritual impact on people. Asked by Gateway News to name Worklife’s most satisfying achievement after a decade of ministy, he says: “Seeing how God has used us to create a language set to help people grasp this concept.” Asked about the most frustrating side of his ministry, he says:”The way people to do not really care about work. It takes a lot for someone to really wake up in this critical area of life.”
Spada says his breakfast talk in PE will also draw on a major study of the global workforce which produced some shocking results, especially for South Africa which has one of the highest percentages of actively disengaged, dissatisfied employees in the world. In a global economy in which positive employee engagement is considered to be a key success factor, South Africa’s disengagement problem needs urgent attention.
“This [problem] ties in directly to Monday Morning Atheism which believers struggle with,” he says.
