  • Retire or refire!

    Jim Sandberg and others. | 13 October 2015

    Retirement is an opportunity to take stock and refire!  Jim and his team helped us consider what we can do to make the years ahead satisfying and meaningful, discovering each day as a gift to enhance life, serve others, and grow spiritually. Refire means living fired up, joyfully, and on mission under the lordship of Jesus Christ, thus making all the years ahead truly worth living!

  • God's purposes for work and business

    Joe King (Owner - King Technology), Randy Roseth (President), Lisa Iverson (HR) | Sept. 29, 2016

    This Everyday Faith seminar focused on Business as Mission -- the role of business people in the mission of God. At first glance, King Technology is a pool and spa water maintenance business. However, it has a higher vision: to enrich people's lives daily. At this seminar Joe and his team walked us through their vision, mission and values and how they live them out in practice each day.
