Faith@Work is a ministry of the First Baptist Church of Augusta, GA. It is a monthly luncheon where professional leaders and citizens of the Augusta community can gather for a time of networking, fellowship and Christian guidance inspiration.


Faith@Work began in August of 2011 as a ministry to and for the working professionals of the CSRA. The luncheons are held on the fourth Tuesday of every month, with the exception of June-August. Serving begins at 11:45, and the the program begins just after noon. The program generally includes a time of welcome and introduction of first time guests and the business or company they represent, followed by a “moment of news reporting” by one of the local media personalities. Dr. Gary Redding provides a thoughtful presentation of biblically based insights relevant to the business community. Whether one is an administrative assistant, bank president, of self-employed, all are welcome to participate.
