Os Hillman • Money Management
Have you ever felt guilty making money? As a man or woman who operates daily in an environment that often appears to be after one thing-the bottom line profit-it would be easy to reduce our whole purpose for living to gaining a profit in our enterprises. There is much justification for criticism of the money focus in our society, because the ruling stronghold in the workplace is mammon that leads to greed and pride.
Os Hillman • Discover Your Purpose
For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Ephesians 2:10

If you are going to discover how God wants to use your life and work, you must know why you were created. If you start trying to determine your purpose in life before understanding why you were created, you will inevitably get hung up on the things you do as the basis for fulfillment in your life, which will only lead to frustration and disappointment.
Os Hillman • Discover Your Purpose
I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name. -- Isaiah 45:3

Many times, the way God calls us into His purpose for our work life is through a hardship of some kind. In other words, He "breaks" our staff, or our vocation. The purpose of the breaking is not to destroy us, but to bring us to a place of willingness to lay down our vocations so that God can use them. The breaking prepares our heart for the new calling.
Os Hillman • Workplace, City & Nation Transformation
I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. (John 17:22-23).

We have heard a lot about the 10/40 window of unreached people groups over the last ten years. These people represent those who have never heard the gospel. However, the "9 to 5 window", where the majority of people spend the majority of their time, also has a large number of unreached people who have the power to impact the entire world for Jesus Christ once they make a commitment to Him and begin to walk in their destiny. Today, we are seeing a move of God among men and women in the 9 to 5 Window, the place where real societal change can take place because of the strategic position many of these believers hold in society. I believe equipping and commissioning this group is key to city and nation transformation.



Os Hillman • Hearing God
He who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love him and show Myself to him. - John 14:21b

Many Christians wonder why they cannot hear or sense God's presence in their life. It is because they do not seek Him with a whole heart, and they are not obedient to the things He has asked.
Os Hillman • Adversity
This is chapter one of the book, The Upside of Adversity. It is a book that describes the journey of Os Hillman and others who have experienced major adversities in their lives and how God has turned their adversities in new callings in life. A special focus on the "Joseph Calling" is addressed throughout the book, which Hillman feels is a calling to men and women in the marketplace.
Os Hillman • The Faith at Work Movement
Steve Hyland has worked for Coca-Cola for over 22 years. He accepted Jesus Christ as His Savior in college. Steve received a job offer to work at Coca-Cola in 1982, just two years after graduating from college while working for Procter & Gamble in sales. Looking back on the circumstances he can see the sovereign hand of God involved in all the details.

Os Hillman • Work As Ministry
If you are going to discover how God wants to use your life and work, you must know why you were created. If you start trying to determine your purpose in life before understanding why you were created, you will inevitably get hung up on the things you do as the basis for fulfillment in your life, which will only lead to frustration and disappointment.

Os Hillman • Adversity
After a decade in the advertising business, in 1984 I founded my own company. The prosperity of the next 10 years lifted me to near financial independence.

Os Hillman • Prayer
Because we've been entrenched in the "secular versus sacred" model for so long, it can be difficult for us to view our work as a ministry and workplace believers as missionaries in the 9 to 5 Window. However, God tells us clearly that we are to glorify God in all that we do (see Col. 3:17,24). One way we can do this is through intercessory prayer, which can be characterized as an intense type of prayer for others (see Eph. 6:18; Col. 4:12), the priestly calling of all believers (see 1 Pet. 2:5; Exod. 19:6) and the Holy Spirit praying in us (see Rom. 8:26-27). Having people pray for us to fulfill our purpose and calling in our workplaces is consistent with the will of God for every individual.
