Living Your Faith in the Marketplace

"...for a Christian, business is a special calling..."

… so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world…

-Philippians 2:15 

Purpose: To equip a small group of Christian businesspeople to be a light in a world growing darker...

Chris Patton, President/CEO, Mike Patton Auto Family

“I have been an intentional Christian business owner and leader for the past 13+ years, but I have to say that Dave introduced me to some ideas that I have never encountered. I am blown away by his concepts and the Scriptural support he provides. I can’t wait to begin implementing some of his ideas! This is absolutely a must for any Christian in the business world.”

Testimonial Bio Dave Kahle Pic Ian Wynn Small

Ian Wynn, Owner / Operator, Ian Wynn Optometry

As an optometrist and someone wanting to honour Jesus I find myself in a perpetual struggle keeping the balance between doing for others as I would have them do for me, and making an income. Your guidance is a good encouragement that God wants me in my business and that it can be a blessing to my customers, my family and my Lord. I believe if I seek God’s Kingdom and His righteousness, all things will be added to me for that purpose but we still have to deal with money, sales and costs.
