Faith & Work

Emerson was a pastor for 18 years before launching Love & Respect. Faith and relationship with God in all we do are extremely important to him. Additionally, Emerson has written and recorded on the topic of our role as workers, speaking to many organizations on this topic.


I came to Christ while attending military school at age 16. He changed my life. So much so that I went on to attend Wheaton College and later became a pastor for 18 years. Although I left the pastorate and started Love & Respect Ministries in 1999 to focus on marriages, I am still a pastor at heart. So when I had the opportunity to write the book Before You Hit Send: Preventing Headache and Heartache, shortly followed by The 4 Wills of God: The Way He Directs Our Steps and Frees Us To Direct Our Own, I was energized by the opportunity to return to scripture, looking at God’s word on communication in addition to his leading and the direction of our lives. Additionally, I was able to work on a project regarding relationships in the workplace and whether topics of faith, life, or work, I will continue to write and record on these topics and trust you will find the content meaningful.

But, I don’t know where you are in your life. You may identify as a Christ follower or you may not, you may be returning to the faith, you may want nothing to do with it. With that said, I encourage you to maybe start with a few episodes from our podcast, or read articles from our blog, whether on matters of faith or the options available on the topic of work.

With Love & Respect,
