Church Work vs Secular Work: Is One More Important?

If all of us choose to say, “The best place for me is to be in the church environment”, what about the world out there that needs to hear the gospel?

So often the question comes as to whether is it better to work in a Christian environment like a church or ministry, than to work in a secular environment. I think we need to demystify this whole thing about the secular and the spiritual. I want to believe strongly that that divide is not helpful at all.
