Giving Tuesday

What does a heart of generosity look like? How can we grow in the grace of giving? Tuesday is Giving Tuesday and on Ken and Deb we will be jumping into this topic of generosity with Pastor Brian Bill from Edgewood Baptist Church.

God and Money

What does the Bible say about radical generosity? How does God's work in our lives transform how we look at wealth and true riches. We will visit with Harvard Business School Grad John Cortines, who will share how God took him on a journey that changed his perspective on money and success.

John Cortines

After launching his career in the Texas oilfields, John Cortines decided to advance the biblical message of generosity full-time, joining the leadership team of Generous Giving.  Turning down a lucrative expatriate job to serve this mission has been the defining moment in his own generosity journey – a journey in which God has proven tremendously faithful.  Previously, he worked for oil companies in several locations across Texas and Louisiana, and as a petroleum engineer for Chevron, where he conducted complex decision and financial analyses of deepwater oil and gas projects. He holds engineering degrees from Texas A&M University (BS, 2010) and KAU of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia (MS, 2011), and an MBA from Harvard Business School (2015).
