    61: Svetlana Papazov - Church for Monday

    61: Svetlana Papazov - Church for Monday

    Welcome to Surge’s Faith, Work, and Rest podcast. Our goal is to help God’s people discern their vocations and re-imagine their occupations for the good of their neighbors and the glory of God.

    In this week's episode, we interview Dr. Svetlana Papazov about her book Church for Monday.

    Dr. Svetlana Papazov is a thought leader, professional speaker, and senior pastor who started and led five for profit businesses, two nonprofit organizations and has written for well-known magazines such as Enrichment Journal, Leading Hearts, Vital Words and more.

    Dr. Svetlana speaks to corporations and associations about leadership, team development, and employee retention. She trains business leaders and entrepreneurs to craft and deliver captivating messages. As a speaking coach and business consultant, she positions businesses for maximum profit.

    What excites Dr. Svetlana the most is unleashing human potential and having a front row seat in the development of influencers. That is why she has intentionally transitioned from a life of a business owner of multiple enterprises to a life of an equipper of leaders. In 2016, she founded Real Life Church and Real Life Center for Entrepreneurial and Leadership Excellence, a first of its kind model of church and business incubator that connects faith and entrepreneurship. Her joy is to work with committed individuals who are willing to co-create beautiful futures with God.



    Her new book Church for Monday (September 2019) talks about the Church that equips believers for work on Monday and fosters the creative streak placed in every one of us from God, practices corporate public faith by uniting worship on Sunday with the mission on Monday.

    58: Jim Mullins - Symphony of Mission (Part III, Creative Service)

    Welcome to Surge’s Faith, Work, and Rest podcast. Our goal is to help God’s people discern their vocations and reimagine their occupations for the good of their neighbors and the glory of God.

    In this episode, Teena Dare interviews Jim Mullins about the new book he co-authored with Michael Goheen called The Symphony of Mission. This is the third part in the series and focuses on the themes of Chapter 5 which talks about how we display the love of Christ by washing the feet of the world.

    Bio: Jim Mullins is the Pastor of Vocational Formation for Redemption Church (Tempe, AZ, helps lead the Surge Network, and is a co-founder of the Faith, Work, and Rest Initiative.. He has worked as a pastor, entrepreneur, nonprofit leader, and basketball scout in Turkey.

    About the book:

    This book is designed to help all people understand the broad scope of God's mission. Michael Goheen and Jim Mullins explain that everyone can live intentionally into God's mission by understanding its many facets and focusing on a particular calling. Just like different instruments of a symphony harmonize together, each aspect of human participation in mission--evangelism, justice initiatives, poverty alleviation, faithful work in the marketplace, art--can help people play their part in God's work in the world. Combining expertise from a mission scholar and a working pastor, the book includes practical examples and tools to help readers imagine their part in God's mission.
