Business Empowerment Circle 2018



Do you know what it means to live each day with purpose?

God calls us to the work we are doing. He’s interested not only in what we do but how we do it. Yet, finding purpose at work is one of the greatest challenges in our world today, and many of us struggle to live out our faith from Monday to Friday.

Wherever you are at, our passion is to encourage you to integrate your faith and work and propel you to be an agent of the kingdom of God in your workplace. Our practical and authentic resources are intended to equip you for your unique challenges and opportunities.

These resources have the potential to transform your life at work.

God at Work Conversations

We are inviting you to eavesdrop on conversations between Ken Costa, a retired investment banker (not connected with Costa Coffee), and Pete Hughes, Pastor of Kings Cross Church, covering 12 essential topics to inspire the way you work, and then to have your own discussions within the BEC group.


1.  God’s purpose for work

What does it mean to have purpose in our work? Whether or not we enjoy it, everything we do is important to God. No matter what your vocation, God knows how tough working life can be.

2.  Called to work

The nature of our workplace is changing dramatically. Our working lives are longer and with the advent of the digital age, there are increasing opportunities available to us.

3.  Authentically you

God’s wisdom is invaluable, especially when working with others, facing temptation or difficult decisions.

4.  Transforming work culture

Our Christian faith is not always easy to live out in our workplace. How do we make steps to entrust more of our work to God?

5.  Money matters

It is not how much money we have, it is our attitude towards money that counts. Our credit card, iTunes account, bank account all tell the story of what we value and where our priorities lie.

6.  Enjoy giving

Society tells us to hold onto our money, whereas God’s attitude is to loosen our grip. Do our actions reflect a godly attitude towards giving?

7.  Good ambition

Is ambition, as once described by Johnny Depp, a ‘dirty word?’ The Bible suggests ambition can be a godly characteristic. How can God use our ambition as an influence for good in the world?

8.  Failing well

We inevitably experience failure at work. Maybe we didn’t get the job we hoped for, perhaps our plans were unsuccessful or we’ve made a mistake.

9.  Right decisions

We make decisions at work everyday, but whether a decision is right or wrong isn’t always clear. How strong are our foundations when we are faced with temptation and compromise?

10. Smart decisions

The working life is not always smooth, to face the ups and downs we need to be smart, skilful and wise decision-makers. What steps can we take to make strong decisions?4

11. Living well

We often talk about finding a work/life balance. Is it possible to live well and be content regardless of our circumstances?

12. Tackling stress

Stress is a major issue of our time. It affects our emotions, our health and our ability to thrive in our work. How do we avoid burn-out? How well are we equipped to fight our fears and stay healthy?

About The Business Empowerment Circle (BEC)

The BEC platform involves professionals and business people in the marketplace. We face the same issues at work and the same struggles to be Kingdom minded in business. We meet in small groups at the designated locations on a monthly basis to discuss each of the above topics.

The small group discussion is not a teaching session, but is designed to promote peer to peer learning with a facilitator to keep the discussion relevant and impactful. Each session is expected to last 1.5 – 2 hours.
