The God & Work initiative was launched at Crossroads International Church in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by a group of senior managers in 2014.
Mr. Heersink is a former public company executive, company founder and engineer (among other things).
Some years ago, Roland left full-time employment for the entrepreneurial life, with an ear to hear what God might have in store.
Mr. Heersink is in his early 60's, has been blessed with a marriage of 40+ years, has 4 children and 6 grandchildren together with his wife.
Roland's passion is to help fellow Christians see & understand what God's intentions might be for their life, especially in the workplace.
Roland and his wife are long-term members at Crossroads International church in Amsterdam and University Baptist Church in Houston, Texas - and yes, they split their time between The Netherlands and the USA / Caribbean when not traveling to host God & Work workshops.
The God & Work course is 100% Bible-based and intentionally non-denominational in appeal.
The workshops have been given in a range of church settings - from the traditional Baptist church in Houston Texas, evangelical churches in Europe and community church groups in Africa.
Since the material is so fundamentally Biblical and not based on any teaching of mankind (although Timothy Keller's book "Every Good Endeavour" is reference 2x in the one-day "everyone" session!
