Chris Winton joins us October 8 for the Work + Faith Online Speaker Series. In this series, our CEO Anthony Flynn interviews distinguished professionals who exemplify living at the center of work and faith, making it a priority to reflect Christ-centered lives while empowering others to do the same. We’re excited to hear from Chris, as he is a dynamic leader, speaker, author and coach.
