I searched Google for terms like “workplace ministry ideas” and “marketplace faith.” Many marketplace people and pastors work to take their faith into the marketplace. At Follower of One want to help.
However, our first step can’t be that we either 1) tell everyone we meet or that we try to 2) shut our faith off. No one wants to talk to someone who incessantly steers conversations. At the same time, we can’t shut our faith off, either. We can’t be something we’re not.

When we decide to follow Jesus, we receive the Holy Spirit and we begin the process of bending our entire life to Jesus.
