Professional Excellence and Academic Performance seminars

God wants His people to abound or excel in both what they are (inward character) and in what they do (behavior or good deeds). It would seem obvious that there is simply no way one can love God with all his heart (Matt. 23:37) without seeking to do his or her best to the glory of God (1 Cor. 10:31). Since that is so, the pursuit of excellence is both a goal and a mark of spiritual maturity. However, for this to be true, the pursuit of excellence must be motivated by the right values, priorities, and motives.

While Competition or being better than others is a prominent part of excellence from the viewpoint of the world and this is usually done for one's own glory, significance or applause of men; biblically speaking, the pursuit of excellence refers to pursuing and doing the best we can with the gifts and abilities God gives, giving our best to the glory of God. But ideally, it is done without the spirit of competition or seeking to excel simply to be better than others.

In GBUR, Professional Excellence and Academic Performance seminars are designed to equip members with biblical principles and skills to pursue excellence whether in professional environment especially for graduates or in academic environment for students. These last should study not to win a test but rather to know and not for themselves but for God's glory.
