About the Speaker: Jim Lindsay is originally from Colorado but went to college in Oklahoma were he completed a BA degree in music. He later earned an MBA at Oxford University in England. He is currently an adjunct professor at Georgetown University.

In 1992, while working in the U.S. Senate, Jim’s grandmother-in-law needed a caregiver. This time of family crisis led to the establishment of a business serving the needs of the elderly. After more than 20 years of caring for those in need, Akota Home Care is flourishing and expanding throughout North America and Europe as they help seniors extend their freedom by providing assisted living at home.

In his engaging talk followed by discussion, Jim will describe how each of us, whatever our profession, can experience a life of “Faith, Freedom and Flourishing.”

"How Then Should We Work" -

A 5-Week Series

Book Cover

Hugh Whelchel, IFWE Executive Director

Have you ever felt like what you do Monday through Friday at work may not have any value to God or the world?

Many people struggle to find any meaning in their work. Some think work is just a place to earn a paycheck and wait for retirement when they can then contribute to something meaningful.
Businessman Hugh Whelchel was that sort of person, but deep down in his heart he knew there had to be more. His thorough biblical analysis reveals the importance of work within the grand story of God’s purpose throughout history. Hugh currently serves as executive director of IFWE.

In these sessions you will discover: the rich biblical meaning of work; the difference between work, vocation, and calling as a Christian; the history of the Christian view of work; the call to “reweave shalom” through your job.

When: 5 Wed. evenings, Oct. 19-Nov. 16, 6:00-7:30 p.m.
Where: NADA Conference Center, 8400 Westpark Dr., 10th floor, Tysons, VA 22102
Cost: $25 one-time fee (includes book and study guide). Refreshments will be provided each week and donations will be accepted but not required.
