PATHFINDERS is the business and workplace ministry of C3 Church. It is not an event but a connection or network of people in C3 Church who are in the workplace. In Pathfinders we see our roles in the workplace as part of our calling and we seek to encourage each other to be all we are meant to be at work as well as in the rest of life.
One way we encourage each other is to meet together to share experiences and learn from each other. There are a number of monthly meetings at different times of day and at different locations across the city, typically in cafes or restaurants. Breakfast groups have proved very successful but we also now have a lunch group and from time to time we will be holding after work social events to help people get to know each other better.
Every now and then we hold a seminar, maybe on a Saturday morning, with a guest speaker who has achieved amazing things for God through work. These events are not to be missed as they provide a great opportunity to learn from those who have amazing things to share with us.
Through all that we do in Pathfinders we want to encourage each other to be successful and to use that success to please our God. If you want to be a part of this please or to find out more about what we do please contact one of the Pathfinders team or the church office.
