Luke Bobo and Paige Wiley

Does God have one perfect job for me after college?

How do I realistically connect my faith and my work?

How should I make decisions about my future?

What if I don’t know what I want to do with my life?

 

If these questions resonate, you’re not alone. We’re bringing two thoughtful leaders to speak directly to the questions in college student’s minds—all the how do I know questions that have vital implications for how we live now and how we plan for our futures.

At this conference you will dive into a theological framework that integrates faith and work. You will debunk myths about work. You will develop a framework around calling. And you will participate in breakout sessions to consider practical, personal applications.

Conference Schedule

Session 1 – The Big Story

Our conference kicks off with a talk by Luke Bobo on a theology of work. Luke will discuss work through the lens of the biblical creation narrative, reflecting on our formation, fall, redemption, and consummation of the kingdom. Luke will help us to view ourselves as God’s image bearers. Together we will consider—God’s mandate for us to work (Genesis 1-2); the ways sin breaks human relationships and distorts our relationship with work; why we need redemption to bring work and calling into perspective; and how God makes all things new in a new heaven and earth.

Session 2 – The Ten Myths of Work

In this session, Paige Wiley will take us on a journey of the ten myths of work, such as—work is a necessary evil; my work defines my worth; there is only one “right” career path for me; and if I’m serious about my faith, I need to consider doing global missions or pastoral ministry.

Breakout Application Sessions

Having the right tools will help you to navigate your exit from college life and entry into the workforce. Viewable on-demand after the conference, these application sessions focus on interview skills; creating a resume that gets responses; networking and building a killer LinkedIn profile; how to navigate personal budgets, benefits, and investments; and finally 10 bible verses about work that every Christian should know.

Session 3 – Workshop: Finding Your Calling

In our final session of the day, Luke and Wiley will lead a workshop about the two callings in our lives, discerning vocation, and compiling a wandering map to put the pieces of our calling together with what happens after college.
