“Heroes Wanted” – New Online Speaker Series

Rodney Bullard, President of the Chick-fil-A Foundation, joined us on May 1 for the launch of the Work + Faith Online Speaker Series! We hope you were able to join us. We heard about Rodney’s experiences working in the White House, prioritizing service in each aspect of his career, and living out God’s perfect plan for his life. 

In this unprecedented time of crisis, we believe it is critically important to discuss the intersection of work and faith. We invite you to join us monthly as our CEO, Anthony Flynn, interviews distinguished professionals who live at the center of this intersection. This online event will allow people to hear from industry leaders on how their faith informs their professional lives.
