ERASING THE SACRED/SECULAR DIVIDE
SACRED vs. SECULAR
There is a common misconception in Christian circles that labels ministry work as sacred, and marketplace work as secular.
This is an instinct Christians have wrestled with since the early days of the Church. But this sacred versus secular thinking is just bad theology.
We need to break the cycle.
WE’RE HERE TO HELP.
THE STONE TABLE STORY
The Stone Table is a global missions organization rooted in the marketplace. We leverage the profits from our marketplace businesses to fund strategic global missions projects around the world. We also equip and encourage marketplace Christians to engage the Great Commission through books, seminars, online resources, and our business incubator program.
Funds created by our core businesses for investment in missions work all over the world.
Funds given by our church and business partners in collaborative missions investments.
Total missions dollars given through our core businesses and collaborative partnerships.
The Stone Table generously funds efforts in the most hostile, difficult, and unreached places on earth. We are thankful for their partnership in the gospel. Together, we are glorifying Jesus, among the people that have scarcely heard his name.
The Stone Table has given me the opportunity to invest in projects around the world that I believe are very meaningful to God’s heart. I wouldn’t have these opportunities without The Stone Table.

This week we discuss the misconception that people of faith are always bold and irrational risk-takers. Erik shares a personal story about a partially developed property in southern Indiana that was foreclosed on by a bank. The property was being developed by Christian builders who had a vision but lacked the funds to complete the project. He emphasizes that faith and risk are not synonymous, but faith always requires obedience. Erik highlights the importance of discerning what God is saying and being obedient to His guidance. He concludes by encouraging listeners to consider whether they are being obedient to God’s calling, whether it requires taking a bold step or exercising the discipline of waiting.
