He’s even started his own mission agency called iGiveGlobal.org to help men like us discover ways we might leverage our own experiences for the sake of the Gospel.
You’re guaranteed to discover some fresh ideas for how you can impact the world by doing what you’re gifted to do. Start seeing your business as mission.
