Audio / External content not produced by TOW Project

I met Will Messenger when I attended a Work with Purpose conference at Bethel Seminary. He spoke about faith and work in ways that resonated with me. Will has been called by God to be the Executive Editor of “The Theology of Work Project”. He works with a bunch of really great folks who have made it their business to give us, who want to understand our faith and work with one mindset, a better understanding of how that works.

William G. Messenger is the Executive Editor of the Theology of Work Project and a member of the Steering Committee. Previously, Will was the Director of the Mockler Center for Faith and Ethics in the Workplace at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary from 1999 to 2008, and an adjunct faculty member there. He created and led the seminary’s doctoral and master’s degree programs in workplace leadership and business ethics. He presently serves as an adjunct faculty member of Laidlaw-Carey Graduate School (Auckland, New Zealand) and a guest lecturer at Holy Cross College (Worcester, MA). He was previously an adjunct professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, NY).

Will is a member of the Board of Directors of ArQule, Inc., a biotechnology company near Boston, where he chairs the compensation, nominating and governance committee and is a member of the audit committee. He previously worked as a sales representative at IBM, corporate finance associate at Goldman Sachs, consultant at McKinsey & Co., and vice president of sales and marketing Advanced Metabolic Systems. Will is ordained in the Episcopal Church and formerly served as pastor of Charles River Church in Boston and assistant rector of All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Belmont, MA. He was awarded a B.S. in Physics from Case Western Reserve University, an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School, a Master of Divinity from Boston University School of Theology and a Doctor of Ministry from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He lives near Boston, MA, USA, with his wife and their two daughters.
