Operating In the Gray 6: Mixing Business and Faith, with “The Lunch”
August 21, 2018 by Alton Webb
Every couple of months a group of Christian businessmen and leaders get together for something called “The Lunch.”
It’s an informal gathering where someone shares about the ups and downs of operating in the business world and how they navigate the gray areas. From real failures, like bankruptcy and family problems, to successes, like acquisitions and IPOs, the lunch is a safe place for these men to come together and talk about real life.
Find out how it got started, why you can start something similar where you live, and what makes this different from any other “networking” event you’ve ever been to.
