They discuss the relationship between pastors and faith driven entrepreneurs and finding identity in Christ, not in entrepreneurship.

BEST QUOTES

"Casting and solving problems is a part of getting into this work that is done by God as His kingdom is advancing.""I think that faith-driven entrepreneurs are being used by God in the marketplace to really impact culture.""Now my biggest leadership challenge is how do I help to lead a movement that is not about me.""Your identity is as a beloved child of God. When God looks at you He doesn't see that Mark Zuckerberg type of character that you might want to be, He sees His son.""The balance that an entrepreneur has is: Am I faithful and obedient? Do I have a right understanding of my identity?""One of the marks of a faith-driven entrepreneur is to be faithful rather than willful.""I would tell my 20-year-old self, my 35-year-old self, my 51-year-old-self who just yesterday made decisions without just pausing for a second to ask God, 'Help me make sure that this is not of you, to just kill it.'"
