Reorienting your everyday work experience

Nate Belkstrom has been pastor of “Living Word Church” in Redwood Falls, MN for more than 25 years. Before that, he spent several years in the business world. He and his wife, Chris, spend several months each year in the former communist countries of Eastern Europe and also traveling throughout the United States. Chris is a licensed practical nurse and uses her medical training both in America and overseas. They have two children, Amy and Corey. Amy is married and works for the public school system. Corey is also married and is a financial analyst for IBM.

“Victory in the Workplace” ministries began in 1993.

The purpose of “Victory in the Workplace” is to help change people’s lives by changing their workplace experience.

Through conferences, books and special meetings, many people begin to see their job in a whole new light. Settings that work well are businesses (yes, even businesses where the majority of people are not practicing Christians), university classrooms, Bible Schools or churches. The teachings are well-received, sometimes life changing.

In 1993, we started “Victory in the Workplace” in America. Since 1995, we have expanded to these former communist countries in Eastern Europe: Romania, Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, Lithuania, Poland, and the Czech Republic.


“Very few teaching ministries have the impact that Nate’ s Victory in the Workplace has. His teaching is simple but profound, pragmatic, but theological, serious, but fun! It contains the wisdom and inspiration that converts us from a Sunday Christian to a full time fruitful and joyful one!”

“CRU Ministry in Romania has been partners with Victory in the Workplace for more than 7 years. We have organized many conferences in churches and in secular places, having Nate Belkstrom as speaker. We see great results in peoples lives who attended. Nate is a very dynamic, funny, and in the same time very solid Biblical speaker. His teaching is much needed for Christians and for nonbelievers. The fact that his books are translated in Romanian is a big gift for our nation. I see a big transformation of our society if christians will have a good atitude and a good testimony at their work. I really enjoy Nate's talks and his friendship.”

The typical person will spend about 80,000 hours of their life working, far more hours than you will spend doing anything else. It’s time to begin to understand why.
