We are so grateful to Chuck for sharing his devotionals with us. They are not just relevant but powerful as we frame and re-frame our work as entrepreneurs. The prayer at the end of each piece is a beautiful synthesis of thanks and requests to God.
Two of the videos in this list also feature guests of the FDE podcast — Alan Barnhart from his episode God Owns it All plus Jeff and Ally Davidson from Camp Gladiator and their impromptu wedding day audition for American Gladiator.
Today we’re just outside of Austin, Texas connecting with Mark McLain. Mark likes to refer to himself as an accidental entrepreneur. He didn’t grow up as the lemonade stand kid but has since gone on to start two different companies. Today, he leads SailPoint, an identity management business started in 2005, that is publicly traded with a market cap around $2 Billion and 1,200 team members across 33 different companies. Mark shares his powerful story of being an “Accidental Entrepreneur” and how that path is more common than we think.
Today’s episode marks the start of something new. We’re launching a brand new website and podcast for the Faith Driven Investor. This episode, and the entire Faith Driven Investor podcast series, is for fund managers, investors, business owners and pastors who believe that God owns it all and who care deeply about how we steward our investments for financial return and gospel-centered transformation. Listen in to hear Henry Kaestner and Aimee Minnich share what God has been doing in this movement and what’s to come.
Join William and Henry in the Mile-High city as they talk to Jeff Haanen from the Denver Institute for Faith and Work.

Tune in to hear what Jeff has to share about what a theology of work means for those in the working class.

It's not often that an article intrigues me the way Anthony Bradley's recent piece in Fathom did. His major point of many of us not having a complete view of the Gospel and restoration of God's Kingdom has very real ramifications for us as entrepreneurs, even though at face level this is a post about racial reconciliation in the Church.
Occasionally we like to spotlight some things in culture that while they might not fit in the defined box of entrepreneurship they speak truth to the same concepts we face. As we look back at the Final Four and the end to March Madness we couldn't help but share the story of Josh Langford, the stand out guard from Michigan State.
