Equip Business Leaders to Disciple

A Businessman's Request

Most people who sit in the pews on Sunday spend the majority of their waking hours at work. Many of those same people struggle with applying their faith to their jobs. In this video made in collaboration with WorkMatters, Donnie Smith, the President and CEO of Tyson Foods Inc., challenges pastors to find those businessmen and women who are already living their faith at work, and then equip them to teach others.

Donnie challenges pastors to engage in the work that Ephesians calls them to: equipping the saints to build up the body of Christ. Find the business leaders who have already closed the gap between faith and work, and then help them equip others to do the same.
