Your network can be one of the most valuable assets in your business, but as a Christian in the workplace, do you consider what it would mean to serve your network while growing it? You are invited to lunch on October 23 to hear about one leader's journey to find faith in what can be a "transactional" side of business - networking. Blain Wease, President of Provincial Development Group, how he moved to a new city, knowing no one, and built credibility to running a business that is 95% referral based. Blain will share what the value and opportunities are for cultivating a strong network.

About the Lunches
We use a practical theological framework to identify the inherent goodness of work, its outcomes, and the deeper questions it asks of us. The gatherings provide glimpses into common struggles and philosophical differences, and seek to foster the hope that emerges when we come to expect more from God within our work. Let’s work on faithfully working at work.
