Here are just a few of the topics I'm unqualified to advise on:
- How to raise quiet children
- Pre-Colombian art
- Physics, Algebra, Engineering
- Office organizing
- Car repair
- Church finances
The good news is, most of the church leaders we serve could care less about many of the things on that list, but church finances...now that's another thing. (and it's a critical thing) So, when I learned that our pals at Aspen Group were hosting a pastors lunch titled "Straight Talk about Church Finances." I wanted to help make it happen. I'm thrilled that Fishhook is joining the NACBA and Aspen Group as sponsors.
And while I don't know two cents about church finances, the speakers at this event are worth their weight in gold. Here's who they are and here's what I like about 'em:
Allen Walworth- President & Principal of Generis
- I’ve met him up close, have visited with him at his home and he is the real deal. Big heart for seeing people experience God's love through a generous heart.
- I’ve seen him speak at a recent Cornerstone Conference where he personally challenged and inspired me.
- I’ve seen the evaluation from the audience at that conference and from their comments he challenged and inspired many.
Jon Huskins, MBA, CPA, President and CEO of Crosspoint Capital
I’ve met with Jon as a brother in Christ – just to get to know each other and see how possible collaborations might come together. He has a humble heart and a seemingly incredible brain for church finance stuff.
I’ve worked with Jon in my capacity as a Fishhook creative guy and his role as an elder at his church and through this, I’ve heard his heart for people who aren’t in relationship with Jesus.
He’s known Fishhook’s Janie Mehaffey for years…and when I asked Janie for her thoughts about Jon, she said, "He's one of the smartest people I know. Jon could easily brag about what he knows and what he has accomplished, but he is such a humble and godly man that his focus is constantly on what he can learn from others and how he can invest his big brains into making a Kingdom impact."
The event is October 15. Greenwood, Indiana. Aspen Group's Lynn Noe is the go-to for questions and RSVP. Hope you can join me as we learn together.
