Does the place you work matter to God?
Is full-time ministry just for those who work for the church?
In her new book, Called to Influence, Karen Kircher argues that many of us are positioned in full-time ministry without realising it because that ministry occurs outside the church.
Karen says, ‘In any given situation every person has an opportunity, however small, to demonstrate leadership. Kingdom-style leaders transform culture, bringing alive the Lord’s Prayer: ‘Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven’.’
Karen has 30 years’ business experience working as a leadership and organisational development coach. She carries a passion to change the face of leadership to one that reflects Jesus’ leadership and the culture of God’s Kingdom.

‘Karen is a phenomenal woman who serves and leads in her family, church and business in an incredible way. Her passion for Jesus worked out so much in the marketplace is marvellous to watch. I’ve seen Karen develop first hand, growing in her spiritual and leadership gifts and putting them in to practice both in her church family but also, perhaps more excitingly to me, in the marketplace. I’ve loved hearing the stories, which she regularly brings back to encourage us all, of God at work in the workplace and how with courage and wisdom we can all change the world wherever we serve. These pages are rich with truth and encouragement and contain both foundational teaching on living our calling but also practical steps to help to activate and make it a reality. I hope you are as blessed and encouraged as I was to read these pages and hear from this remarkable woman.’
