Pray with Michael Waddell

Hi everyone! My name is Michael Waddell, and I serve as Senior Associate for Vennture, CBM’s faith meets work department. I want to thank you for your ongoing prayer support for CBM and the work we are doing together as Canadian Baptists around the world.

Whether paid or unpaid, work is an integral part of what it means to live as God’s people in this world. Learning more about how our Christian faith shapes and informs the way we approach our work can make a huge impact for God’s Kingdom, which is why CBM, through Vennture, is supporting partners with formational theology of work training, business growth and development, and mobilizing people to participate in God’s mission in and through their daily work.

Please pray for CBM’s Africa team and partners as they continue to develop and implement ‘Integral Mission in the Workplace,’ a new faith meets work training curriculum designed for the African context. Please also pray for the various Vennture business initiatives that our partners are operating in India and the Philippines. And be praying for the small team attending a Work & Worship seminar this week (Aug 7-11) and who will be helping Vennture develop liturgical and worship resources for our church partners. Thanks again for your faithful prayers!
