Event: Quarterly Inspiration Call
Date: Wednesday, January 19 at 3 pm ET
Title: God and Money: Discovering God’s Generosity at Harvard Business School
Speaker:

Greg Baumer is coauthor of God and Money – How We Discovered True Riches at Harvard Business School and True Riches: What Jesus Really Said about Money and Your Heart. Greg and his coauthor John Cortines have contributed to national media outlets including Moody Radio, NY Daily News, and RELEVANT Magazine, and speaks regularly at large churches and conferences around the country.

It was while taking a course at Harvard Divinity School called God & Money that Greg began to think deeply about the intersection of faith and finance. Through a deep study of Scripture on the subject of money, Greg began to understand that when it comes to generosity, God wants something for us, not from us. Since that time, Greg has become convinced that God offers a unique joy to those who choose to live generously, and has become passionate about spreading the message that generosity is best thought of as a unique opportunity given to us by God to step alongside Him in the fulfillment of His Kingdom.
