    Encouragement for Work Through Adoption Assistance

    Encouragement for Work Through Adoption Assistance

    As competition for great employees increases, it’s becoming abundantly clear that employers must be creative in their approach to employee benefit design. Some organizations are providing a unique and powerful benefit: adoption assistance. In this episode of Encouragement for Work, learn how you can encourage your employers by giving them the opportunity to support life by adding adoption assistance to their employee benefits.


    Meet Herbie Newell, Herbie is the President and Executive Director of Lifeline Children’s Services and its ministry arms. He holds a Master’s of Business Administration in Accounting from Samford University. Before joining Lifeline as Executive Director in 2003, he spent several years working as an independent auditor for WAKM Companies, LLC, a prominent accounting firm. Under Herbie’s leadership, Lifeline has increased the international outreach to 25 countries, grown into 18 states, attained membership with ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability), begun an extensive foster care ministry, achieved accreditation Internationally under The Hague Treaty, and started its (un)adopted strategic orphan care ministries in over 10 countries.
    Herbie speaks nationally at conferences and events, and regularly preaches throughout the world on Gospel-driven justice. Herbie is the author of the book “Image Bearers.” He and his wife, Ashley, live in Birmingham, Alabama and are parents to a son, Caleb, and daughters Adelynn and Emily.


    Listen in as Mark meets with Herbie and learns how employers can create an adoption assistance benefit program. Since there are costs associated with adoption such as medical, agency, court, legal, foreign, and more fees, many employees need assistance to make their adoption happen for their family. This assistance could provide financial support to adoptive families through either a one-time lump-sum payment or full or partial financial reimbursement.

    Be Bold

    Be Bold if We Believe Jesus Is the Lord, Then We Must Be Bold at Work
    Join us on this episode of Encouragement at Work. Mark Griffin meets with Peter Demos. Peter entered the family restaurant business at age 12 when he started working as a dishwasher in his dad’s Western Sizzlin’ restaurant. From there, his experience in the food industry and serving others gradually grew under the tutelage of his father, who imparted to Peter many aspects of what it takes to run a successful business.
    After graduating from high school, Peter earned a B.S. in sociology from Middle Tennessee State University before studying law at the University of Missouri. He went on to earn his Doctor of Jurisprudence degree, during which he discovered that he could better fulfill his passion for helping people in the food industry.
    In 1999, Peter returned to his parents’ family restaurant, Demos’ Restaurant, with the single goal of growing the organization. His experience as a restauranteur grew, and he was given the position of chairman on the Board of Directors for the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce and president of the Tennessee Hospitality Association. Currently, he is the president and CEO of Demos’ Brands and Demos Family Kitchen, owning six restaurant locations across middle Tennessee, including PDK Southern Kitchen and Pantry, and multiple other businesses.
    Peter is a highly sought-after leadership source expert and speaker on business, leadership, and faith. In addition, Peter also serves as an adjunct professor at Lipscomb University, where he teaches a class on leadership and management. Today, Peter and his wife, Kristin, work closely together in both business and ministry. They are now teaching their two children to also serve God with their lives.
    Author of: Afraid to Trust: One Man's Journey into the Love of God and On the Duty of Christian Civil Disobedience.Peter brings his insight on critical organizational aspects that should be considered in any organization's HR department to be successful in these tumultuous times. Listen in as Peter and Mark give encouragement for work.

    Putting the Ego on Simmer

    Putting the Ego on Simmer

    Meet Denise Lawrence. In a recent mastermind session she facilitated, she focused on leadership development and had a candid discussion about Big Egos and what this form of leadership character can do for teams.


    The reality is that, no matter how smart or skilled we are as leaders, we cannot know everything. When the ego is so profound that it prevents employees from using their own places of strength—intellect, skillsets, and workplace gifting—then the entire organization is in jeopardy of failure.


    Join Mark and Denise as they discuss how to tone down the ego or turn a hot and heavy ego on simmer for the benefit of those we lead.


    Denise has been a business owner since 1987 and has experienced failure many times while building great teams. Denise finally checked her ego and learned to lead from a position of service, which is the best biblical instruction for leadership that can be applied. Denise has served over 300 mastermind groups across the country, and through focus groups, she has learned what needs to change to make these truly effective for the leaders who participate and the employees and teams who benefit from their participation.


    Today, Denise is a serial business owner with a mission to establish programs and services that close the wealth equity gap for faith-based businesses in America. She calls herself the business disrupter because she believes the whole small business industry needs a transformational shift toward serving others, lifting others up, and erasing a hierarchy where only the top thrive.When the goal is for everyone in the business to succeed, be happy, and build wealth, they all rise together. Denise is a former journalist turned entrepreneur, pastor, wife, mother, grandmother, and Ph.D. candidate at Liberty University.

    Culture’s Idea of Retirement Is Not Biblical, but Solid Kingdom-Based Planning Is

    Culture’s Idea of Retirement Is Not Biblical, but Solid Kingdom-Based Planning Is

    We spend a quarter of our lives in retirement, yet plan very little for this important and, potentially, most impactful season of our lives. This is especially true for employees of churches, Christian schools, and other para-church ministries. Why not plan for how God will use us as our physical abilities diminish, yet our spirits are at the highest level of maturity. Their is much to give to the Kingdom of our time and resources in our retirement years. Why not plan for it?
    Meet Jim O'Bold. As a former banker who has worked with those with means and without, Jim has experienced the impact of proper financial planning (and the lack thereof) on life trajectories. After a call to FT ministry in 2009, Jim decided to apply his experience to God's design for finances in the life of servants of the church. Jim briefly served as an Executive Pastor before landing as Dir. of Financial Planning at Servant Solutions, where their mission is Improving Financial Security for Servants of the Church.
    Jim has now been with Servant Solutions for thirteen years, spending the last four as President. Although the organization is primarily a church retirement plan provider, it believes it is impossible to do proper retirement planning in a vacuum. Therefore, it leans heavily on providing free financial planning for its members as a wholistic approach to meet the goals and dreams God has placed on their hearts and ministries. This is Jim's heart as an ordained minister, to Serve Those Who Serve.
