NEW HUMANITY - NEW WORKS - NEW NATIONS
All of our world's problems stem from our broken human nature, and its broken relationship with God, others and creation. We believe that when we live and work from the new humanity of Jesus Christ, we can create new societies and nations in microcosm. Which can be a light and a hope to wider society, having a transformative effect.
This is not wishful thinking but has been done before in history with the early church in Rome and St Patrick in Ireland. More recently we have historical accounts of observable national transformation through men like William Carey in India, Abraham Kupyer in the Netherlands, Nielsen Hague in Norway, and John Calvin's Geneva.
The Nova Project is a non profit organization in Geneva that creates space for learning and dialogue about how to live, think and work differently as a new humanity and how to drive innovative action “on the ground” to create real change in our world that's sustainable.
We seek to contribute a unique voice to the questions of how to “live and work wisely”, “how to reintegrate work and faith”, “how to live with mission and meaning on the job” and “how to develop innovative solutions that contribute to just and sustainable development of our societies”.
The Nova Project works to see people flourishing and societies developing through the reintegration of faith and biblical wisdom into every aspect of human life, vocation, culture and national development.
Working across three interrelated pillars we empower professionals and business leaders in the workplace; and the communities of faith they may attend to:
Reintegrate faith and spiritual wisdom into their working lives and vocations to enjoy a life of meaning and to be on mission on the job as they contribute to the development of their society through their work.
Open windows of imagination through which we can see a better world, and through merging design thinking, business modelling and theology, design and execute innovative projects that spark spiritual awakening, socio economic development, and cultural renewal in their workplace, cities and developing nations.
Create, support and multiply workplace communities that provide a place of meaningful friendships, spiritual support and missional opportunies. To have a community within the workpalce that envisions together new ways of adding value to the organization, its culture and stakeholders and the city at large through wisdom and faith.
