Workplace Discipleship


Workplace Discipleship


How can I best serve God in church, family and work? How can I discover my unique mission in life? How can I manage wealth in a God-pleasing way? How can I be a good steward of my life?

Many of us often wonder how we can practice Authentic Discipleship and Intentional Disciplemaking at the workplace. Some question if this is even possible.

The good news is that we aren’t alone on this journey!

Join us at the IDMC Institute's Workplace Discpleship Seminars and learn what God has in store for us at the workplace! We’ll explore these questions about ministry, vocation, wealth investments, and much more. Gain biblical perspectives and discern competing non-biblical perspectives which can influence your emotions and actions.


Theology of Ministry - Serving Others in Christ's Name in Family, Marketplace, and Church

We follow a Jesus who said “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45). Secure in their heavenly Father's love, followers of Jesus must also be committed to a life of ministry.

This seminar will look at our call to be sons/ daughters of God who serve others in Jesus's Name. Since service cannot be abstract knowledge only, we will examine how we are to serve others in the three key areas of church, family and work. Our goal is to to face God one day and hear "well done good and faithful servant" (Matthew 25:23)

Vocation - Discovering God’s Calling for Your Life

Our first call is to follow Christ, to focus not on our calling but the Caller. Yet because God made all of us unique, each with our mix of strengths and burdens, we desire to discover our unique life mission.

This seminar will present the biblical teaching on calling and give practical guidelines as to how we can discover our calling. We want to know our calling because we want to be good stewards of our lives for His glory and to be a better blessing to others.

MoneyWise Christians - How to Let Purpose & Wisdom Drive Money Decisions

As a Christian, have you always wanted to manage wealth in a God-pleasing way? Have you looked to Scripture for guidance?

If you would like answers to these questions, we invite you to join us.

Life Stewardship - Living the Responsible Life

One of the realities of life in Singapore is that we are constantly busy and tired. We are constantly aware that we are behind in all the things we think we should do.

This seminar will provide a biblical and practical approach to manage our lives in such a way that we experience God's shalom in the midst of our busyness. The answer lies in returning to the Father for our deepest needs and for wisdom as to how we can be faithful stewards of the roles He has entrusted to us. We will also look at the need to live in a biblical rhythm of hard work and Sabbath.

Partnership - Boomers & Millennials Serving Together

We live in an interesting time in history where the two largest generations, Boomers (born 1944 - 1964) and Millennials (born 1980 - 1994) grew up with different key formative experiences. As a result the two generations often struggle to understand each other. Our vision for the church, indeed for life, is intergenerational. Each generation have different strengths to bring to the table. Yet for that to happen they need to understand each other.

This seminar will seek to help Boomers and Millennials and indeed other generations, understand each other so that they can serve each other and serve the Lord together.
