Family is something that seems to have lost its central place within our society. As a millennial, Gavin shares some of the experiences of family faves within his generation.

We have all experienced that 'Monday morning' feeling, the dread of getting up and starting a new week in our 9-5. Something is ingrained in us that makes us feel negative towards work, it stops us from having fun and spending our time doing the things that we would actually like to be doing. What if, though, that wasn't God's original intention for work? What if work is actually a positive thing, given to us in order to allow us to bring about good things? In this talk, Gavin unpacks a Biblical vision for work and how this plays out in our lives. What would it look like to be people of impact in our 9-5s?

We all have a frontline, we all have our day to day.....are you effective in yours?
