Today we’re in Cupertino, California connecting with Christeen Rico. She’s on the International Expansion team at Apple. She spends much of her time focused on bringing Apple's largest product—their retail stores—to life in new countries around the world. In addition to that, she is responsible for co-leading a volunteer team to define and execute programs that strengthen community and growth opportunities for the Apple Christian Fellowship, one of Apple'sDiversity Network Association. It’s a part of a growing trend that’s emerging in places like Facebook, SalesForce, Google, and many other companies. These are great movements for people looking to connect their faith to their work, and we’re excited to bring you all that Christeen had to share…
Join us outside of Austin, Texas where we are connecting with Mark McClain. 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. Hear Mark share his powerful story of being an “Accidental Entrepreneur” and find out how that path might be more common than you 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. His article, God of the Second Shift, made waves in the faith and work world, and we’re excited to have him on our podcast today to talk more about how we can move this conversation around theology and business from the corner office to the manufacturing floor. Tune in to hear what Jeff has to share about what a theology of work means for those in the working class.
