A Christian Approach to Getting Stuff Done

Welcome to Redeeming Productivity

Our aim is simple: Helping Christians to get more done and get it done like Christians.

Through weekly articles and podcast episodes, we examine the subject of productivity from a Christian worldview—looking to the Scriptures to establish a distinctly Christian theology for work, family, efficiency, technology, and goal-setting. Because as believers stewarding the many responsibilities of our lives, we must ensure that we are intentionally doing all things for the glory of God.
