At NEAC we think that the Lordship of Christ should impact the whole of life. The workplaces of Sydney are where believers spent most of their lives. How is it that the vision of the Christian life shapes the work we do? The Gotham Fellowship is a year long course that seeks to explore how the Lordship of Christ in the scriptures remakes us so that we can serve him in his world.
There are a number of core components of Gotham:
- Spiritual Formation. Gotham takes you on a spiritual journey that grows loving dependence upon the person of Christ. A gospel-shaped work life begins with a gospel soaked heart. How personal transformation through Christ’s death and the Spirit’s power is explored in devotional and classic christian writings.
- Integrated Theological Vision. Gotham plumbs the depths of the Christian tradition looking to classic and modern theological works that develop an understanding of God’s purposes in scripture and awe at Christ’s Lordship in all things.
- Community. Gotham seeks transformation through relationships in community rather than in isolation. Through a group of interdependent and prayerful companions Gotham provides personal insights into how God is working throughout the world.
- Connecting Faith with Work. Gotham allows space for a deeper understanding of how sin has effected particular workplaces and how fellows can impact their vocation for the sake of the kingdom.
