Using Your Christian Influence from School to the Marketplace with John Decker #138• 17 min
Today on the Follower of One podcast, Mike Henry sits with John Decker. John Decker was one of the founding directors of Every Student Sent and lives in Syracuse NY with his wonderful wife Dorothy and has 3 children and 8 grandchildren who love Jesus. His passion has been to influence secular college campuses and the workplace by preventing the 70% college faith drop off and catalyzing awakenings in academic departments, then the marketplace. This has become a national movement and coalition to prepare and connect every college-bound student to ministries and churches many months before college, and prepare them to engage the secular culture and multiply disciples. In this episode, Mike and John talk about integrating your faith at work, the creation and impact of Every Student Sent, transitioning college students to the workplace, using your Christian influence to impact where you work, and the importance of Christian communities. Outline of the Episode 01:10 - How John got started integrating his Faith at Work 04:16 - How Every Student Sent Got Started 06:44 - The impact of Every Student Sent 09:18 - Transitioning college students to the Workplace 10:40 - Using your Christian influence to impact where you work 12:22 - Getting opportunities to talk about Christ to people 14:12 - The importance of Christian communities Transitioning from school to the Workplace Transitioning from school to work is a hard thing to do. But, if we place our trust in the Lord and have Him walk alongside us throughout that transition, it won’t be as difficult. When we put the Lord first, people will see that through how we act. Using your Christian influence to impact where you work As Christians, we are called to look completely different from the world. This also includes where we work. We want to look so different that the people around us ask questions. The door to talk about our faith is opened when our coworkers ask us why we act differently.
