Proudly Serving

Faith at Work

Ben is a follower of Christ. Therefore, while most of hist talks focus on secular business and non-profit audiences, with a message independent of his faith, he welcomes the opportunity to speak on Christian topics. Most of his talks in this arena deal with bringing one’s faith to work. Too often today, we practice our faith at home and in church but spend 40% of our waking hours ignoring the teachings of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Why is that and what should we do about it? If you want Ben to cover these topics and challenge your audience to be better Christ followers on the job,  then check his availability.
