In this conversation Jerry Bowyer argues that Christian business owners are not second-class citizens in God’s kingdom.
Can Christian business owners learn anything from the ancient collaboration of the people of Issachar and Zebulun? We talked with Jerry, one of our keynote speakers at the next Business On Purpose conference, about how doers (entrepreneurs) and thinkers/theologians can work together to accomplish good during times of crisis.
-Business owners are world changers.
-Balancing thinking vs. doing.
-Issachar and Zebulun, shared the same tent (or cubicle!).
-Zebulun could make things happen and make profits, but they needed Issachar to help them spot changes and opportunities.
-The blessing of the relationship between these two types of people (business owners and Christian scholars/thinkers/clergy) should not be severed in the modern Church.
-Don’t disdain those who are skilled and called to business or view them as simply people who can write checks to support the church.
