During a lifetime, the average adult spends almost 100,000 hours at work.
Work matters. Most of us spend more time working in a day than we do sleeping. Our jobs are a means to provide for ourselves and our families, and to create stability in our lives. Many of us have been told work is simply "the daily grind," and for some of us, that's true. We've begun to believe that work is, by nature, unsatisfying. Life-taking.
But who doesn't want it to be more than just hours spent?
Can our jobs can also be a place where we contribute to something greater than ourselves? Where we work for the common good, together? Where we create meaning and begin to see our work as something we were designed to do?
The Collaborative has been strategically developed to help people connect the dots between work and faith. We equip workers to think beyond the paycheck and find deeper meaning in the place they spend most of their waking hours and energy: their work.
