God's Kingdom is not just inside a building.

God is God and His Kingdom is all across the earth. His Kingdom is being established within our neighborhoods, our schools, our cities, and our government. And what He's doing right now is waking up His body because He wants to move in our midst in new ways! That means your work as a student, homemaker, banker, plumber, teacher, bus driver, HR worker, dentist, lawyer, administrative assistant, CEO, athlete, politician, janitor, daycare worker... is holy. That's right, when done unto the Lord and operating in your unique gifts and abilities: Your Work is Holy.
