Yesterday I had the opportunity to meet with some of the business school students. Whenever I get to hang guys in the b-school it is a great joy for me. The incredible potential to make a difference in the world through these students is huge. Many of them are thinking beyond the typical goal of b-school students of making money and living comfortably for themselves. Some of them are thinking of ways to use their b-school degree to transform the world and bring the Gospel message to various nations.
Last year, a handful of b-school students in our church decided to start up a school organization called, “Christian Business Initiative.” So far they have been holding various seminars and finding ways to reach out to the University of Michigan community. It is hard to find students who are this motivated to use their majors to bring forth transformation on campus. This is why it was an honor for me to speak to this group.
I addressed the topic of “Commerce and the Church.” Specifically, I talked about the reputation commerce had in the church over the years and how God is starting up a new revolution. The world is constantly changing; and we are seeing God open up doors for business people to use their vocation to reach nations. This is why the “C” of the Transformasphere Movement is going to play a vital role in world transformation.
Afterwards, I had the opportunity to eat at the dorms. I could not even remember the last time I ate at the dorms. It was just great to see some of the students in their natural environment. Now, I know why how the “Freshmen 15” is possible 🙂
I was talking about how God can use the business world to carry out His purposes
Haven’t been in the dorms for years… oh, how I missed the food line!
