“Biblical Work: Excellence. Freedom. Glory.”
Alan is the Managing Partner at Shandel Group, a leadership development firm that specializes in helping executives and leaders accelerate the healthy growth process. He is committed to engaging, empowering, and equipping leaders to work both smarter and harder in their personal and professional lives.
Alan has been fortunate to help start and or grow just over 1000 businesses across the U.S. and Southwestern Canada within the last decade. His method focuses first on optimization before maximization.
Prior to working in the private sector, Alan was in vocational ministry. He is very active as a volunteer leader at Downtown Cornerstone Church in the heart of Seattle. Alan and his bride Sarah now live in West Seattle, have been married 14 years, and homeschool their 3 amazing children.
We live in a day and age where the belief is that “truth is relative”. Yet it seems that more and more evidence is coming out that people are dissatisfied both personally and professionally. In fact, a recent poll discovered that 66% of American workers are not fully engaged in their work. (Gallup)
In light of this, perhaps one of the questions Christians in the marketplace might ask is, “What does the Bible show us about work and how we can most effectively think about it, talk about it, and carry it out?” We will ask that very question and then walk through practices for how to increase our efficacy and enjoyment while striving to make Jesus look as good as he really is.
In addition to divine grace, the answer is tied to having a high degree of clarity around Biblical stewardship. Together, we will begin uncovering what our purpose as believers really is and how to clarify proper priorities. In other words, we will look at how you can most fully begin to optimize your time, talent, and treasure for God’s glory and the good of all.
Alan will draw from Christ’s example of biblical stewardship (Matthew 25:23) and Paul’s tenacious claims about his own work ethic (1 Corinthians 15:10). In so doing, we will begin to answer the questions that will help us see our earthly trajectory to bring God glory and experience his goodness each and every day, both personally and professionally.
This event will include break-out discussion sessions, allowing for meeting others and sharing together, as well as post-event connection time.
