The first part of our 7-Part series is, "A Vision For Vocation". Many of us are looking for a job when God have given us a purpose beyond making money, pursuing comfort, and climbing higher on the social and economic ladders. He made us in His image to flourish, work, rule and create. But what does that look like practically? Let's talk Avodah! Join us for a time of worship and learning as we're led by NYCUP Director, Jonathan Walton.
We are privileged to have Diana Mao & Edwin Sorto join us on June 11! She is the Co-Founder and President of Nomi Network, an organization dedicated to ending sex-trafficking and slavery in India and Cambodia. A fervent follower of Jesus, we look forward to tracing her journey following Jesus. Edwin is an immigrant from El Salvador who works as a contractor in New York City. Sorto Solutions is dedicated to loving God and our neighbors through quality work in our most intimate spaces.

Background | What is Avodah?
Avodah comes from a Hebrew word whose root has three distinct yet intertwined meanings: work, worship, service. The root of this ancient word speaks life to the present day. If God can and should be the center of every sphere of our lives, how do we do that with our jobs? Especially in a culture oriented around greed, pursuit of wealth, and success at any cost? We aim to inform, inspire and equip the next generation of marketplace leaders with the tools necessary to reframe, integrate, and apply faith in Jesus especially into their everyday employment. With a generous grant from the Lilly Foundation our 7-Part lecture and discussion series invites all attendees to Avodah Our God at and through their vocation.
