As we look back on 2015, Life Lessons Over Lunch has had quite a busy year. We’ve welcomed a new Director, revamped our website, streamlined some of our processes, rolled out a new logo, revitalized our social media presence, redesigned our marketing material, and hosted the first annual Life Lessons Over Lunch Leader Event.
All of these initiatives were driven by your courage, dedication, and commitment and our mission to support you in your efforts as you share your faith with your coworkers.
Because Life Lessons Over Lunch serves as a springboard, often the first step for many, our Life Lessons Over Lunch leaders rarely see the eternal impact a simple invitation has on one’s spiritual journey. Thankfully, they listen to and trust in the path that God has placed before them. Here’s one story of a Life Lessons Over Lunch attendee-turned leader who took that first small step and never looked back.
The 2015 Life Lessons Over Lunch Leader event was held on Tuesday, November 10. With more than 100 attendees, the North Point Community Church Theatre was filled with leaders who are positively influencing their nonbelieving coworkers and creating inviting and safe environments where they can consider issues of faith.
Recently, Barry Zito, one of the most accomplished and popular players in Major League Baseball, announced his retirement. In an interview, he admits his baseball career had been “a mirror to his life off the field, full of euphoric highs and devastating lows.”
The vision for the Life Lessons Over Lunch ministry is a simple one: to bring coworkers closer to Jesus Christ. We like to look at it in terms of steps, but we know that spiritual journeys aren’t often linear.
