|A study of how theology of work would affect theology of preaching for the practice of business as a calling : A survey conducted among pastors of the global Evangelical Church||
To find how theology of work would affect preaching for the practice of business as a calling, in the Global Evangelical Church, (GEC) in Ghana Africa, a survey was conducted among pastors of the church. A qualitative inquiry was carried out on a stratified sample of 50 pastors drawn from 106 seminar attendants. Literature review focused on several scholarly sources on the subject among which one scholarly work was chosen for critical examination. The purpose was to build on the chosen scholar’s unfinished works. Literary review of the scholar revealed that there were tasks that the institutional church had to execute to enable understanding of theology of work leading to the practice of business as a calling. In order to find how true the findings were with the GEC, data was collected. Data demanding objective and subjective responses were collected following a seminar purposed to give basic information about theology of work. Analysis of data and results, were presented as percentages as well as in descriptive form. Analysis showed that in the face of preaching opportunities available to pastors of the GEC, they needed knowledge of theology of work coupled with stewardship structures and conceptual skills in order to affect congregants for the practice of business as a calling. Conclusions and recommendations drawn from the analysis appreciated the conceptual skills of pastors but encouraged the leadership of GEC to empower its pastors through the provision of study opportunities and organizational structures for GEC members to understand and do their work as calling from God.
