Event description

Description

This potluck picnic and networking event is a chance to meet others in your field of work who share your love for Jesus and your desire to live out your mission in the marketplace.

Come have a meal together, be introduced to the concept of “Jesus At Work”, then gather into groups by profession to meet and discuss questions such as, "How do we live out our call in our workplaces? What are the greatest obstacles to sharing our faith? What does it mean to live a seamless life, integrating faith and work?"

The target group for this event is young professionals working in various spheres. Each group will be facilitated by a leader working in that field.

These are the Special Guests who will be sharing:

Education - Paul Kane

Law/Government/Public Sector - Bob Kuhn, Attorney, Kuhn LLP, President Emeritus, TWU

Technology/IT/Engineering/Science - Enoch Weng, Financial Advisor, Freedom 55 Financial, Director of FaithTech Vancouver
