FW1 Theology of Work Gerry Breshears 4.5 What is God calling you to do? Is his calling only for pastors and “professional ministers” or is it something that applies to all of his people? Dr. Gerry Breshears, professor of systematic theology at Western Seminary, explores key questions such as who God is, what he has created people to be, how being the image of God affects the way we approach work, and what is the role of spiritual gifts in our job. This course will expand your vision of what work is all about, as you come to see yourself as God’s co-worker and representative. 
FW2 Work Matters Tom Nelson 1

If you find yourself anywhere on the spectrum from workaholic to weekend warrior, it’s time to bridge the gap between Sunday worship and Monday work. This course will help you do that. Striking a balance between theological depth and practical counsel, Tom Nelson outlines God’s purposes for work in a way that helps us to make the most of our vocation and to join God in his work in the world. Discover a new perspective on work that will transform your workday and make the majority of your waking hours matter, not only now, but for eternity.

FW3 Implementing a Theology of Work Kent Humphreys 5 Using the mental picture of a shepherd caring for his sheep, Kent Humphreys likens the shepherd to a pastor and the congregation to sheep, into which a few horses (strong business leaders) have been let loose. How is a pastor to understand and equip these potentially powerful creatures to be part of the “flock” and then to go out into their workplace to minister and influence it for God? Taking the example of how Jesus handled His “horses”, a simple plan is offered that can build bridges between pastors and workplace leaders, impacting both the church and the community. 
FW4 Calling and Complexity Kate Harris 1

There is a new reality for women in the 21st century—it's a different world with different goals than it was even a generation ago. What once was "You can have it all" has now become "You need to have it all." You need to have the perfect job, the perfect husband, the perfect house, the perfect kids, the perfect play dates and craft nights and date nights and DIY Pinterest projects and Instagrams.

What does it mean to be a woman in a world like that? Where does vocation fit into all this? Many women struggle with the decision to work inside the home or outside the home. The reality is we can't really have it all—sometimes we have to make choices. This course explores the value and beauty in those constraints.

FW5 She's There, Look Closer Panel 1.5 The demographics on women have changed radically in the past 20 years.  More than half are now in the work force and many are the main financial support of the household.  These changes are impacting the church in a significant way, church leaders needs to take note. This course will help you do that.

FW6 Theology and Economics Greg Forster 3.5 Christians are called to live out God’s creation purposes and be signposts of the glorious future to come. That includes activities like religious works, charity, and volunteering, but these take up only a small fraction of our lives; discipleship must be a whole-life endeavor. If we want to follow God’s call and live into our true identity as his stewards, we have to integrate our faith with the spheres of life in which we invest most of our time: work and the economy
FW7 Navigating the Marketplace with Grace and Accountability McNicol / Lynch 1.5 Grace is a much misunderstood and therefore abused word today, and perhaps as much is the word accountability. How do you rightly understand these words and bring them together in the marketplace. Bruce McNicol and John Lynch have been working on these issues for many years through an organization know known as TrueFaced. Together with Bill Thrall they have authored Ascent of a Leader, Bo's Cafe, Behind the Mask, The High Trust Culture and John has just release On My Worst Day. This course will help you sort through the thorny issues as Dr. Gerry Breshears contributes to the discussion from his extensive background in theology and pastoral care.
