Most Christians sense that their faith is supposed to impact their work, but it can be a challenge to figure out how. So, instead of integrating faith and work, we have a tendency to try to balance them, but this leads to what Barry Rowan, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Gogo, Inc., calls “the divided life.” How can we move toward a unified life, where our faith impacts every other dimension of our experience, including our work? Before we can get to the question of purpose in business, though, we need to find the fundamental meaning of our lives.
Join Barry, who has over thirty years of experiencing building and leading technology companies, including Vonage Corporation and Nextel Partners, on his quest for meaning. Along the way, we’ll learn how God uses suffering and failure to expose false idols of achievement, empty of us our selfish ambitions and vain conceits, and ultimately fill us with himself, giving us renewed purpose and hope to engage the marketplace redemptively.
