We believe each of us is created to both know Christ and to make him known. Many of us spend the majority of our waking hours at work, making it one the most natural mission fields in our life. In reality, for most of us it’s the most under-utilized communities in which we recognize our potential to make a daily difference and share the love of Jesus. None of us are alone in our daily challenges, and together, we can encourage one another to be intentional and fruitful in our workplace.

Connect

LifeWork is about exploring where your work life and your life's work intersect. We believe we can do by connecting with others from the workplace. Together we can talk through the challenges and victories you and others have in living out your faith at work. None of us are alone in lifework challenges and it’s important to discuss in community.

ABBA

At ABBA we help Christian business leaders find community as you journey to integrate an authentic faith into your work life. We know there is a tension between growing in your career and finding purpose in your work, and it can often seem like you are the only one in your organization who struggles with that tension.

We want to help you avoid a lifetime of work without meaning and faith in isolation. We will come alongside you and introduce you to a community that will connect you to a large and growing network of local, Christian business leaders who are on the same journey, provide regular opportunities for you to engage with these leaders as you learn and grow together, and guide you on a path to discover how you have been designed by God to have a unique impact in your job, your organization, and even in your city.

Fully Formed Followers

What is a Disciple?  A Fully Formed Follower of Christ

The apostle Paul put it this way: “My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you…” Galatians 4:19.  Paul “labored,” which is to say, “he worked hard” to see Jesus formed in others. That’s what it means to be a disciple – to have Jesus formed in our lives. 

Here’s a simple definition:

Fully Formed Followers of Jesus understand what Christ has done for them (Grace), who they are in Christ (Identity), and have set their hearts to pattern their lives after Christ’s until they look and live like Jesus (Life Patterns).

What characteristics are we working hard to form in others? There are many indicators, but after reflecting on the words of Scripture and their own lives, the pastors and elders at Hill Country Bible Church concluded there are four basic identities with corresponding life patterns that encompass the core characteristics of a follower of Jesus.

  • Worshiper: Disciples grow in their devotion to God and away from devotion to anything else.
  • Witness: Disciples faithfully share the good news of Jesus with others and see people come to faith in Christ.
  • Servant: Disciples know how God has gifted them and they use their gifts to serve
  • Disciple Maker: Disciples understand their primary ministry calling and disciple others to become fully formed followers of Jesus.

Philosophy of Ministry

Each of us, together...saturating greater Austin with the love of Jesus.

In conjunction with our purpose statement, the leadership also established this simple core philosophy of ministry:1. Who are you?2. Where are you spiritually?3. How can I help you take the next step?

This philosophy recognizes that each person, no matter where they are in their spiritual journey, has a next step to take and often needs help taking it. It continues to guide our approach to ministry so that we stay focused on people — not programs.

The Four E's

The goal of E4 WORKLIFE: Work as Worship is for you to experience a paradigm shift in integrating your faith and work as you begin to view your work as worship. Let’s recapture and live out the concept of “Avodah,” a Hebrew word which translates to both work and worship.

Workers who view their work as worship are:

  • Excellent
  • Ethical
  • Engaging
  • Evangelistic

Art of Neighboring

What if Jesus meant that we should love our actual neighbors?

A few years ago, twenty-one churches in Arvada, Colorado united to start a neighboring movement in our community. We kept things simple and challenged the people in our congregations to take the next small step with their literal neighbors. The movement has spread, and to date over 1,000 churches are using the Art of Neighboring resources.

If you are interested in starting a neighboring movement in your community, or if you would just like more information about what we’re doing, learn more here!
