Minstering To Your Coworkers

Mar 15, 2008
Every day, we are given the opportunity to share our faith with the people in our lives. We spend a good amount of our time at work and we are likely to spend more time with our coworkers than many of our family and friends.

When you make the decision to evangelize at work, it is critical that you remember to be respectful to both your coworker, and to your employers. When you hear others around you whining and complaining about their job or their personal life, don't join in the negativity. Remain positive and uplifting. If you can behave more Christ like, and less like a disgruntled employee, others will see that you are different and they will be attracted to what you have.

Remember to always be friendly, kind, polite, and to show a genuine interest in the lives of your coworkers. When possible, invite them out for lunch or a cup of coffee to get to know them better. Congratulate them and tell them they did a good job when things are going well, and be a good listener and be supportive when things are not going well. Make sure you remember what is going on in the lives of your coworker and add them to your prayers. Then, don't forget to follow up by asking if things are improving and remind them that you care.

When your coworkers are talking about what they did the previous weekend, or what they are looking forward to, you can use this as an opportunity to share what you did over the weekend, or to share how excited you are about an upcoming church event or holiday service. If a religious holiday is coming it is OK to ask them if they have any plans to celebrate. Do not be judgmental if they do not celebrate, but make sure that you are ready to explain what the holiday means to you.

Bring a small gift, or a homemade cookie for a coworker. This can be more touching than anything else, it shows you really care and thought about them. Remember that it is our actions that show who we are.

It is also a good idea to bring your Bible with you to work. You can read it at lunch time or on a break. This can be a great conversation started. Wearing Christian jewelry or t-shirts is another great way to catch the eye of another without having to say a word.

Lastly, be sure to pray for you coworkers and for opportunities to share your faith and the love Jesus has for each and every one of them.
