Over the last 18 years I have been a pioneer of sorts with the faith at work movement. During that time I have tried to connect and learn about as many of the related ministries as possible around the country. There have been some efforts many years ago to form coalitions of this group with modest degrees of success, but this most recent effort, which has been coordinated by Eric Welch and CRU (formerly Campus Crusade) is very encouraging.
Many people do not realize the role of a catalyst and connector that we play here at Integrity Resource Center (IRC). Recently, I was meeting with a friend of IRC when I began sharing about some of the work we have been doing in helping create an exciting new Adopt-a-School program that encourages churches and businesses to join together to adopt each school in the districts we serve.
My friend was shocked that we had been a part of something like that for well over a year, and he had never heard anything about it! He said to me, “Rick, you have to begin telling people about all these things IRC is doing.”
I thought that was probably pretty good advice. So in response, I’ve decided to give you a look at some bigger picture things I’ve been honored to be a part of through this series of posts...
