Men's Breakfast

October 26 | 8:00 am

Join us for an exciting morning as we hear a powerful life message from John Griffith, former executive vice president of property development for Target Corporation. John led Target's store count from 912 stores in 1999 to more than 1,900 stores today. John also recently led the American Refugee Organization in providing humanitarian services and infrastructure to the operations of refugee camps in Africa, the Middle East and Pakistan. John currently works with Life Time Athletic as their real estate and development executive.


John is a faith-based leader committed to serving Christ. As a graduate of Bethel University he has applied Christian principles in the workplace throughout his career and will share his experiences of faith in the workplace. 


This is a very relevant topic for men of all ages as we look for ways to practically apply our faith in whatever environment we find ourselves. Come for a free, hearty  breakfast and warm fellowship.
