There are two big reasons we started ACN:
Firstly, we spend so much time at work. If you work a 40 hour week, over a 40 year career, you will spend more than 75,000 hours of your life in your job. In that same time, if you go faithfully to church every Sunday and attend one mid-week event, like a Bible study or small group, you will spend only 8000 hours at church.
So does God care about the 75,000 hours? The Bible says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as if working for the Lord.”
The second reason is that in any given industry, often the best person to support someone through the ups and downs of day to day life is a colleague, because they already know the ins and outs of the job, the culture, the environment, the processes, the way things “just are”.
Because many people travel for their job in this industry, ACN uses a combination of online forums and face to face events,
Rather than adding one more thing to your schedule, see this as finding God in your schedule. You’re already at work, so let’s not neglect that time but rather think through together what it looks like to be a faithful disciple of Jesus in the airline workplace, and to approach my work the way God would have me do so.
