Purpose Driven Houston Business Leaders

WHERE BUSINESS MEETS FAITH

As Americans we are bombarded by the theme that to be successful you have to be ready to overcome all obstacles. Some people interpret that theory to mean you can do anything necessary to be a victor in business.

 

The bible says in Proverbs 15:22 “ Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisors they succeed.”

 

I have found, after a lifetime in business, that there are some real benefits to actually using Christian principles that work in Houston businesses. In the following articles we will interview some notable successful business persons who have used those biblical principles to bring Christ to the workplace. I believe them to be some people who are afore mentioned advisors that have made a difference in the workplace.

Here are some basic facts that demonstrate the need for us to use business as a mission field:

 

  1. Gallop printed the results of a study done in 2005 that indicated 40 % of American families attended church at least 2 times a month on a regular basis. According another study reported in the Outreach Magazine, April 10,2018 issue, those figures have dropped to 17.7%. A similar study reported by Barna in 2017 indicated the average attendance to be 31%, for the highest attendance areas, Southeastern portion of the United States. It is estimated to be even lower today.
  2.  The average church service is about 1.5 hours which equates to 3 hours per month considering the statistics of the qualifications for the polls.  
  3. If you are an average American worker, you will spend an about 178 hours per month.

Where do you think the best opportunity is to tell unreached people about Christ? What this information indicates is that we have a huge mission field in business to improve people’s knowledge of the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

We want to show you some basic tools that you can use to bring Christ to your employees, your customers, and your peers in business.  You too can become a Purpose Driven Leader!
