Join us as we host Brett Johnson, founder of The Institute for Innovation, will share with us a thought-provoking talk on God’s views on business from the Garden of Eden, the New Testament, the modern mission’s movement, and today. Seeing the interplay between business and God’s work on earth will help attendees realize the difference between having God in your business and having your business in God’s business. Brett will also share stories from the 350 companies and thousands of business leaders he has worked with in the US, Africa, India and Indonesia.
