Do you really want to make an impact for the Kingdom of God?  Our speakers are doing just that, but with surprisingly different methods and outcomes; proving that affecting our personal mark`etplace is as unique as who we are and where we are.  A CEO, an Executive Coach, a Pastor to pastors, they have traveled from success to significance.  Each one has a totally different assignment, using ‘tools’ they were given by the Holy Spirit, to get to HIS desired outcome.  You might relate, or you might hear for yourself, but you will leave inspired to get out your tuning fork, quiet down, tap it and listen.



Know How to Identify and Implement Your Assignment - Knowing you have an assignment – and then accomplishing it are two separate challenges.   Executive coach, Jeff Ahern helps business leaders succeed and achieve their personal and corporate goals by doing just that.   Author of Kingdom Business Success, Ahern provides a unique insight on how to make an impact by implementing biblical principles of success.  He will give you the tools to embrace the necessary paradigm shift so you too can impact your sphere of influence in your family, your department, your business, your company, your industry and the nation – and yes, the cashier at the supermarket.  Ready to take on the challenge?

You’ll learn:

  • How to succeed personally and professionally by tapping into Biblical blueprints
  • Why it’s vital to begin your journey with an intentional prayer life
  • How does the Kingdom of Heaven compare to the kingdom of this world?

Creating Eternal Value Through a Caring Culture - As a business leader who invites Jesus Christ into your workplace, have you ever considered the kind of far reaching impact you can have on your managers, employees and even their families?  William Renfrow, CEO of Renfrow Brothers, Inc. and board member of His Way At Work, will share from personal experience what can happen when we integrate our faith with our work.  Renfro says “It all starts with sharing God’s love by creating a caring culture in our companies.”  HWAW’s tenet is ‘money is simply a by-product of what we work for; but eternal value is what we live for.’  If you realize your ‘job’ within your job is to display Jesus as your supervisor…. This session is for you. 

Ask yourself: 

  • Why does God have me here and now?
  • What does God want me to do?
  • How does God me to behave in my work environment?

William is the CEO and Founder of Renfrow Brothers, Inc. located in Spartanburg.  He is also on the Board of Directors of His Way At Work and has implemented the His Way At Work process in his company.  In addition, William is engaged with Christian Chambers of Commerce in SC.



What Do You Do When Business Theories are Just Not Enough? - Any successful sales person knows the first rule of closing the sale is to start by building rapport.  Principle #1.  People buy from whom they like and who are like them.  But how does that rule mesh with the Kingdom principle of loving one another?  Pastor Ed Spencer has a key to that puzzle.  He teaches, preaches and offers healing to people different from himself – and in fact may not at first ‘like’ him.  An ardent follower of Jesus, Ed has built a community based ministry, Building Bridges dedicated to the elimination of generational poverty.  He shares insight with CEO’s who – after applying Biblical principles - have completely reversed their employee and new hire turnover rates, and watched retention, productivity, morale and profits soar.  If you are looking for a remarkable improvement in your ROI, this session will be worth your investment.  In this workshop you will:

  • Recognize the range of factors that create instability for employees
  • Connect the dots between insecurity to employee performance and profitability
  • Identify a unique solution to improve morale, employee retention, and communication

Pastor Edward Spencer, Director of E4-12 Ministry, describes himself as a disciple of Jesus Christ - prepared by the Lord for his current assignment through a lifetime of preparation. An award-winning Journalist, successful businessman, and now a Pastor and Ministry director – Ed has formed a community development ministry dedicated to unleashing human potential for the creation of new wealth. Ephesians 4:12: “for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ.”



Is Your Business Your Mission Field? - There are not many companies that make a statement for the Kingdom, but Tyndall Furniture Galleries is a great example.  Drive by their stores and their advertising signs declare Scripture.  Inside their stores are prayer walls erected for requests.  Prayer is first on the agenda when any business decision arises.  A third-generation family owned and operated business, Tyndall is now run by daughter, Diane Jones, COO and other family members.  Jones states “our ministry (note: Diane uses ‘ministry’ and ‘business’ interchangeably) affords us the opportunity to live out our faith courageously before the world, while impacting lives of our employees and customers.”  She says, “Now is the time to seize the opportunity and take a bold stand for Christ in our homes, businesses and communities.

Diane will share:

  • How to be faithful in times of market uncertainty
  • The three things over which every CEO should pray
  • What an influencer looks like to employees, customers and competition
