Called To Work

Gold
HISTORY
Called To Work began as an annual workplace Christianity and Professional Development conference founded by Elaine Kung, AT&T Director, and hosted by Rutgers Community Christian Church in Somerset, NJ. The Conference was founded by Elaine Kung, a long-time manager at AT&T and Jason Browning, a long-time manager at Lucent Technologies. Both were active in their respective corporation’s Christian cultural diversity groups, and they shared a desire to host a Christian-oriented professional development conference for their coworkers and the general public. The inspiration for the name, “Called To Work,” came from Karen Johnson Moy, a management consultant and former White House staff member who delivered the themed keynote address by the same title, “Called To Work” at the ministry kickoff conference in 1996. Moy had observed that many Christians in the workplace felt inferior because they were not in so-called “full-time Christian ministry” like pastors, teachers, and missionaries. Moy was persuaded that, in reality, all Christians have a divine calling and that many are “called to work” in business, non-profits, institutions, and government. In the fall of 2001, after 9/11, Northeast Christians At Work became active in Called To Work.

Grace Publishing House

「天恩」的文字事奉,跟隨上帝走過三個階段:1983年 天路美工設計社肇基;1985年 天恩出版社誕生;2003年 天路企劃公司成型。30年來,一步一腳印,用「閱讀」搭起讀者與上帝的天梯。

Grace Publishing House was founded since 1983 by late president Ezra Ting, with the vision of 

Reading: Building the heavenly ladder that connects you with God!
This vision is inspired from Ezra’s daily devotion of Psalm 121:1-2 (MSG)“I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains?
No, my strength comes from GOD, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.” 


Our mission is to publish biblical and prophetic words, through building the long-term partnership with churches and ministry organizations across the globe. We are called to strengthen the body of Christ, and to share the Gospel News in Chinese-speaking nations for God’s kingdom.
