A Strategic Partnership between The High Calling and Theology of Work
Starting January 1, The High Calling will become a joint publication of the Theology of Work Project and The H. E. Butt Family Foundation.
The High Calling has worked closely with the Theology of Work Project since 2007, supporting their work and partnering on initiatives like the Theology of Work Bible Commentary and the Patheos Faith and Work Channel. They continue to do an incredible job developing deep biblical resources and collaborative initiatives for professionals around the world.
Since our missions overlap so significantly, we have decided to combine our efforts by integrating The High Calling into the Theology of Work Project’s free, online, searchable website of faith-and-work materials. The TOW Project editorial staff will oversee the operations of The High Calling, including managing its archives and ongoing publication, email newsletters, and Facebook and Twitter platforms. HEBFF will support Theology of Work financially, and Marcus Goodyear will be an editorial advisor.
“This is an exceptionally exciting development for the Theology of Work Project,” said William Messenger, Executive Editor of the TOW Project. “The High Calling is recognized by many as the premier online collection of faith, work and economics materials. Its focus on practical applications, stories, cases and reflections is a natural fit with the TOW Project’s focus on biblical and theological sources. We look forward to linking and integrating the two collections into a comprehensive whole. And the partnership with HEBFF is incomparably valuable. HEBFF was one of the original partners who formed the TOW Project and has been represented on the TOW Steering Committee by David Williamson and Mark Roberts. Mark is also a contributor to the TOW Bible Commentary. Marcus Goodyear, as editorial advisor, will be a strong addition to TOW’s capability.”
During the next few months, The High Calling archives and articles and social media accounts will migrate to the Theology of Work Project. These changes will not affect Daily Reflections subscribers.
