The Maker versus the takers

Hunt Valley Church - The Point

What we think about business matters.  And what we think that God thinks about business matters even more.  What better place to look than God incarnate? What can Christian business owners learn from Jesus based on how he talked about business and how he interacted with people in business and with the power-brokers and “successful” people of his time?

Jerry Bowyer, the author of The Maker versus the Takers: What Jesus Really Said About Social Justice and Economics, will show us how God’s design for human productivity means that business owners hold a key place in expanding his Kingdom.  By looking at how Jesus–who grew up in a small business household himself–interacted with entrepreneurs and even drew heavily on businessmen for the twelve disciples, we can learn what role business owners can play today in bringing healing, grace and justice to the world of business.

Join us as we explore how you can build a business that reflects God’s purposes, while fostering a culture of grace AND profits.
