HISTORY

Called To Work began as an annual workplace Christianity and Professional Development conference founded by Elaine Kung, AT&T Director, and hosted by Rutgers Community Christian Church in Somerset, NJ.  The Conference was founded by Elaine Kung, a long-time manager at AT&T and Jason Browning, a long-time manager at Lucent Technologies. Both were active in their respective corporation’s Christian cultural diversity groups, and they shared a desire to host a Christian-oriented professional development conference for their coworkers and the general public.  The inspiration for the name, “Called To Work,” came from Karen Johnson Moy, a management consultant and former White House staff member who delivered the themed keynote address by the same title, “Called To Work” at the ministry kickoff conference in 1996.  Moy had observed that many Christians in the workplace felt inferior because they were not in so-called “full-time Christian ministry” like pastors, teachers, and missionaries.  Moy was persuaded that, in reality, all Christians have a divine calling and that many are “called to work” in business, non-profits, institutions, and government.  In the fall of 2001, after 9/11, Northeast Christians At Work became active in Called To Work.
