Hi, I'm Andy Black
When I was 25 and without any hope in my job, God came and spoke to me re-directing my career path into something I loved to do. This was quickly followed by another encounter when both my wife and I were radically born again. Since then, the purposes of God always went hand in hand with the work I did.
The full story of this journey is described in my published book, ‘The Helper’, (Journey into purposeful work).
'Work with God' was founded in 2000 during a further spiritual encounter with God when He instructed me to,
“Take the message of Christ to the business and working community”.
Along with this came two well-defined characteristics of this ministry: His ‘presence’ would far outweigh any principles and the concept of ‘success’ was associated only with knowing Him.
My working life then started from scratch, as I was led into a world unknown to me. But it was fully known to God, so trusting Him became a vital necessity as I struggled to navigate the new terrain. The closer in relationship we became, the further I moved on, the work of the Spirit becoming everything as my own efforts continually floundered. Slowly but surely, however, my in-Christ identity was emerging.
The full story of this journey is described in my recently published book, ‘In Whose Image?’
