Overview

Do you feel as though you have to choose between growing spiritually and growing professionally? Does it seem like the pursuit of profit conflicts with honoring God’s principles? Does your work environment undermine your faith and core values?

Join successful entrepreneur Chris Evans as he explores how to develop the fruit described in the Bible and uncovers a natural and sustainable way to grow and demonstrate your faith at work. Written in a clear, easy-to-read style, Fruit at Work gives the specific meaning of each word, provides biblical examples, and shares workplace stories where the fruit of the Spirit is having a dynamic impact.

Fruit at Work is for people at any level of employment who seek a spiritual life that resonates not only in their personal lives, but also in their work. Evans provides guidance for tough situations such as managerial decisions, the need for approval, patience with coworkers, job loss, distraction, team dynamics, and job satisfaction. Here is a new vision for work relationships—one based in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

When spiritual fruit is growing in you, your clients and coworkers will notice. As the Holy Spirit transforms you, you’ll discover a closer walk with God and a transformed workplace.
