    #53: God Can Use Your Brokenness In Your Career with Burt Rosen

    #53: God Can Use Your Brokenness In Your Career with Burt Rosen

    "God uses our circumstances to get us right where he needs us..." guest Burt Rose shared this in today's poignant interview. Burt hasn't seen his son Matthew in over 21 years - his son is believed to be homeless. The heartache Burt experienced led him to become CEO of Knox Area Rescue Ministries (KARM) in Knoxville, TN, where he has served since May 2003. At first, he couldn't look in the eyes of the homeless people coming through the doors and believed he wasn't suitable for the job. As he thought about telling the board he wasn't right for the position, God whispered to him, "I needed someone with a broken heart to do my work here..." In this interview, you'll hear: how God used Burt's heartache to forge a path for His glory; why Christian leaders must lead with conviction in the marketplace; how culture must be championed by leadership; and why it is a detriment to culture when leaders let things slide. This interview is for anyone wondering how God can use their heartache to propel the Kingdom, from personal life to business. 
     
    About the guest: Burt is the CEO of Knox Area Rescue Ministries (KARM) in Knoxville, TN, where he has served since May 2003. He married his childhood sweetheart Carolyn in January 1973; with four children- two boys and two girls. Originally from Miami, FL, Burt directed a halfway house for ten years there before moving to Louisville, KY, to join Prison Fellowship Ministries (PFM) as a field director. A year later, Burt moved to the national headquarters in Reston, VA, where he served in several senior leadership roles. The last 12 of Burt's 17 years of ministry were in Pittsburgh, PA where he established the Northeast Regional office. Burt has been KARM's CEO for 19 years and will retire from that ministry--but not ministry--on October 1, 2022.
     
    He and his wife have begun a new ministry--Hold On To Hope--to support families with children with unknown whereabouts and need to hold on to hope to carry on. The disappearance of Burt and Carolyn's son Matthew 21 years ago ultimately brought them to KARM and now to support other parents.

    #51: Christian Leaders Can't Be Casual About Money with Dr. Keith Johnson

    #51: Christian Leaders Can't Be Casual About Money with Dr. Keith Johnson

    If you're casual about money, you will become a casualty! Today, Dr. Keith Johnson tells Christian leaders how he went from over 180 thousand dollars in credit card debt to a millionaire with multiple income streams. He is an Amazon Best-Selling author, speaker, and serves as president of Destiny College International. Keith's story leans on a principle you've heard from Bobby, "First, grow yourself. Then, grow your people. And only then can you grow the organization." 
     
    Keith spent a year learning for five hours a day from the uber-rich so he could implement legacy-building change into his life. On his path to transformation, a mentor looked him right in the eyes and said, "Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world... and you only have $227 in the bank." This truth rocked Keith and set the foundation for how he now sees and prioritizes money as a person of faith. In this interview, you'll hear: why becoming more spiritual won't solve money issues, the task that will help you exceed what you believe is financially possible, and the number one thing keeping you from multiplying wealth. Tune in for lasting truths about growing your wealth from someone who has walked it out. 
     
    About the guest: For more than 25 years, Amazon Best-Selling author Dr. Keith Johnson has been known all over the world as an Internationally Acclaimed Confidence Coach and Speaker. He holds a Doctorate of Philosophy in Theology and serves as the President of Destiny College International.

    #50: Good Business Is Good Stewardship with Ben Muresan

    #50: Good Business Is Good Stewardship with Ben Muresan

    Guest Ben Muresan Humble says that you deserve the life God has for you, but it might not be the life you have now. Ben has developed the largest private mortgage company in southwestern Ontario and has coached over 2,000 students in business and investing. When his bank account hit one million dollars, he didn't want to celebrate. Instead of a party, it turns out he had a reckoning about the impact he wanted to have with his business. He says it's not about hitting financial milestones; it's about who you become along the way and how you steward the business God has entrusted to you. You need to listen to this interview if you: are ready to serve Christ in the marketplace unapologetically, want to break free from the workaholic cycle and into Christ-like stewardship, and wish to honor God physically, mentally, and through your business. So tune in for the passion and energy you need to not only take your leadership to the next level, but your faith.
     
    About the guest: Ben Muresan was born in 1985 in Romania, at a time when the country was under communist rule. His family escaped before the revolution and landed in an Austrian refugee camp in 1990. After immigrating to Canada and eventually reuniting with his siblings, Ben developed a passion for life and a gratitude mindset. His parents’ sacrifice for a better life developed a deep sense of responsibility within him early on in life. He dreamt of building an empire: motivating, entertaining, and investing in other people. Today Ben has developed the largest private mortgage company in southwestern Ontario and has coached over 2,000 students in business and investing.
