About the Course

Christians talk about “the Gospel” all the time, but what is the Gospel, anyway? Our answer has dramatic implications for the way we think about our work. If our understanding of salvation means that we’re simply waiting to go be with God in heaven, then the Gospel doesn’t have much to say about our regular workdays in the meantime. If, on the other hand, we come to a broader understanding of the Gospel, we can open up new ways to engage our work redemptively. 

Join Ryan Tafilowski, associate pastor of Foothills Fellowship church and adjunct professor of theology at Denver Seminary, as we explore the grand narrative of creation, fall, redemption, and consummation as it unfolds across the pages of scripture. Within this four-part drama, we’ll find where our work fits in God’s mission to make all things new. 

If you’re interested in integrating your faith and your daily work, this course is a good place to start.
