Overview
Called to be Light in the Workplace – A Workbook is the revised and expanded version of the second book (2003) in this series. This workbook challenges its readers to be ‘light’ on their respective job(s) in each of the three phases of career progression: (1) Entry-level (trainee or intern), (2) journey-man level (middle manager), and (3) senior level (executive or mentor). God’s Word ministers about how to encourage others at work and influence positive change in the midst of dysfunctional places of employment. Through the lives of Jesus, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Evangelist Billy Graham, Dr. Ben Carson, and many other recognizable and unrecognizable names, excellence in their jobs has raised the level of productivity of others.
Description
Called to be Light in the Workplace – A Workbook is the revised and expanded version of the second book (2003) in this series. This workbook challenges its readers to be ‘light’ on their respective job(s) in each of the three phases of career progression: (1) Entry-level (trainee or intern), (2) journey-man level (middle manager), and (3) senior level (executive or mentor). God’s Word ministers about how to encourage others at work and influence positive change in the midst of dysfunctional places of employment. Through the lives of Jesus, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Evangelist Billy Graham, Dr. Ben Carson, and many other recognizable and unrecognizable names, excellence in their jobs has raised the level of productivity of others. It is systematically divided into three parts, with three chapters each. Supported by the Scriptures throughout, the central theme of each chapter focuses on specific ways to let our ‘light’ shine and to Give God the Glory! while at work each day. As with all books in the Give God the Glory! series, it concludes with a family prayer to reinforce the contents within the books’ nine chapters. Readers are encouraged to refer to the Give God the Glory! series as collections of prayers, daily prayer books, and prayer books. Prayer shall change our lives for the better as we learn how to apply God’s Word to our everyday lives. It can be used as a daily prayer book to learn why and how do I pray.
About the author
With the fundamental belief that God uses ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things, Pastor Kevin Wayne Johnson lives to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. His passion is reflected through his national best-selling book series (Give God the Glory!), that earned 19 literary awards from 2001 to present, all published through his Christian-based publishing company – Writing for the Lord Ministries, as a former radio and television host, and in several leadership positions within the local church, the Christian publishing industry, and the National Association of the Church of God (Anderson, Indiana). A native of Richmond, Virginia, Johnson was introduced to the Bible and the Christian doctrine as a child and active member of Ebenezer Baptist Church. At the age of eight, his maternal grandmother (Granny) prophesied that he would preach the gospel in due season. From these planted seeds, Johnson, alongside his wife, Gail, confessed Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior on May 2, 1993. This spiritual transformation occurred slightly less than two months after their marriage on March 6, 1993. Effective January 1, 2014, Pastor Johnson serves as Senior Pastor, Accokeek First Church of God, Accokeek, MD. Prior to this assignment, he served on the Purpose Management Team and as Pastor of Discipleship at Celebration Church, Columbia, Maryland (June 2010-December 2013), leading eight thriving ministries including WIN Institute (Bible College). Pastor Johnson also serves as Secretary, National Association of the Church of God Men’s Ministry (2009 to present). Johnson was initially ordained into the Christian ministry as a deacon while at Shiloh Pentecostal Church, Incorporated, Christian Love Center, Somerville, New Jersey, with his wife, in 2000. He is an Evangelical Training Association (ETA) certified instructor (2000 to present). In 2011, Pastor Johnson became an ordained Church of God minister. Johnson is a professional in government as well as private industry. For 30 years, he has performed successfully in numerous middle and senior-level positions in the areas of workforce development, training, organizational change, acquisition/procurement, customer service, client relationships, and program management, to include the Department of Defense, Department of the Treasury, the Government of the District of Columbia, Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, Department of the Army, Defense Logistics Agency, and in the private sector at Vivendi Universal and Reuters America. He has testified before the United States House of Representatives Committee on Small Business, and has prepared testimony that was presented before the District of Columbia Committee on Government Operations. Johnson is a graduate of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Graduate School’s Executive Potential Program (1996). During this program, he assisted the Office of Federal Procurement Policy with several procurement reform initiatives that were tied to the National Performance Review under the Clinton Administration. In 1999, he was awarded the distinction of “Fellow” by the National Contract Management Association Board of Directors. Johnson maintains an active involvement in community service and retains membership in several professional and civic organizations to include Virginia Commonwealth University Alumni Association and African-American Alumni Council, serving on the School of Business Board of Directors from 1994 to 1996, the African-American Federal Executives Association, the Christian Small Publishers Association, and the Autism Society of America, Howard County, Maryland Chapter. Pastor Johnson is the eldest son of Ernest and the late Adele Johnson. He attended and graduated from the Richmond Public School system and Virginia Commonwealth University earning a B.S. degree in Business Administration and Management/Economics/Finance. He also completed course work towards a MBA degree at Marymount University.
