Have you ever sat through a missionary presentation thinking, “I wish everyone could hear these amazing stories?” Now there’s an opportunity to read a collection of stories from the mission field around the world and right here in our backyard in a new Wycliffe Bible Translator’s Devotional titled, “A Journey with the Word.” Wednesday Kristie Frieze from Wycliffe USA will join us to share some stories from the project and remind us that God’s Word is alive and active today in our lives and circumstances.
Most people say they are generous, but does their giving reflect their perception? How does Jesus view wealth and security? Does our giving reflect our paycheck or our heart? Those are some questions we'll discuss Wednesday with John Cortines who has studied what Jesus has said about money, your heart, and true riches.
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).
