A Conference for Business Professionals and Entrepreneurs
Whole-Hearted Living in a Noisy World
Naples Bay Resort
Building on a more than 30-year legacy of bringing Christian professionals and entrepreneurs together to seek God’s direction in their lives, support one another and encourage the integration of faith and business activities, the Mennonite Entrepreneurs Conference 2014 will focus on "Whole-Hearted Living in a Noisy World"
From the waters of Babylon to the cities and towns of North America, it's never been easy to stay spiritually grounded amidst the seductive noise of popular culture. Join us as we explore together how we can more fully align ourselves, our families and our enterprises with the deepest desires of our soul.
Our conference leader will be Henry Landes, founder of Landes Learning International and Delaware Valley Family Business Center and member of Salford Mennonite Church, Harleysville, PA. As someone who thinks of himself as a marketplace minister, Henry will share what he and his team as well as their clients are learning about whole-hearted living. He will lead us in exploring whole-hearted living by:
- identifying biblical characters and other “real people” who embody the paradox of being both
- beloved and broken
- nurturing an inner life which embraces our strengths and our struggles
- learning how a vulnerable spirit builds trust, faith, and connections with our family, our associates…and with other people at our conference
Sunday morning worship will be led by Dennis Gingerich, founding pastor, Cape Christian Fellowship.
The conference includes opportunities for connecting with old and new friends over dinners, singing and worshipping together, and unstructured free time. Golf can be arranged for those interested on Friday morning and Saturday afternoon. Other activities in the area include beaches, the Everglades, shopping, galleries and more.
The Mennonite Entrepreneurs Conference is organized under the umbrella of Mennonite Economic Development Associates (MEDA) and everyone is welcome.
