    Joe Denner: Business is Ministry

    Joe Denner: Business is Ministry

    Joe Denner joins us for a fantastic discussion that explores the often overlooked (and sometimes controversial) concept that business and everyday work can serve as powerful platforms for ministry. Joe talks aboout how he came to his personal realization about the sacred-secular divide and the understanding that all work under God's sovereignty can be a form of ministry. Joe Denner is an experienced business consultant with a rich background in both pastoral roles and the corporate world. He shares his journey from being in the financial sector to embracing his true calling in executive coaching and business consulting. Joe emphasizes the importance of seeing work as a ministry, the transformative power of building meaningful relationships within the workplace, and the impact this mindset can have on company culture, innovation, and individual growth. We unpack the idea that good organizations, like supportive churches, are unafraid to send their people out into the world, which is the mission we strive for at Unbound in creating a community that values and launches its members.
