How to Glorify Christ in the Workplace

How to Glorify Christ in the Workplace

What are five ways to glorify Christ in the workplace? Do I have to be in management to serve Christ in my job? What does it mean to treat Christ as supreme at work?

As the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) for EnergyCAP, Inc., my main responsibility is to make sure that organizations needing energy management software find out about our product. I’m also our company chaplain; and so therefore I encourage our company to operate by the Christian business principles upon which we were founded.

For example, as a Christian-based business we:

  • offer an adoption and foster grant to employees
  • match employee giving to charitable causes
  • offer mental health counseling and marriage retreat scholarships
  • give paid time off to employees to serve others

But other companies do these kinds of things, and that doesn’t mean they operate on Christian business principles. Some may argue these programs are worthwhile because they’re good for employee productivity, without doing them for Christ. What then, differentiates us from others?

Our management team at EnergyCAP believes three statements:

First, God the Father caused our company to come into being. It wasn’t by the will of our Founder or CEO that we were created; it was by the sovereign will of God.

Second, God the Father has his own purposes for our company. Again, our CEO may have his own plans for the company, but God has his own reasons for sustaining it.

Third, the ultimate goal of our company is to bring glory and honor to Jesus Christ. Our particular context for pursuing this goal is by creating great energy management software and a great company. That’s our platform, our means. But ultimately and primarily, the goal of everything we do is to bring glory to Christ.

In a presentation in Dallas at the National Training Conference for Cenergistic, I spoke about how to glorify Christ in the workplace. We turned it into a Christ Cast and are providing it to you.

Christ Casts are online presentations that are recorded as videos for viewing on Christ Casts cover a variety of topics to expand one’s vision and experience of Christ. Always free to attend and easy to use—all you need is a computer and Internet connection, and speakers or telephone for sound—Christ Casts are a convenient way to be discipled into Christ wherever you are.

This Christ Cast answers:

  • What are five ways to glorify Christ in the workplace?
  • Do I have to be in management to serve Christ in my job?
  • What does it mean to treat Christ as supreme at work?
  • And more

Watch the Christ Cast now:

    Thank you Pastor Chris for your article. I am touched how your company is relying on God. You have mentioned 3 pointers how the company existed is because of God. I pray even the church can define that it is not owned by any pastor or leader, and it exist not because of them but of God.
    The Lord bless work in promoting Christ and His kingdom in your work place.

      Pastor Roy, as always you are an encouragement my brother. I know you preach Christ in the Philippines, surely to live is Christ; to die is gain.
