July 10th, 2020: Jonathan continues his "Heroes, Villains and Redemption" series with "Black Widow." If someone asks you to give an elevator pitch on what redemption means, would you be able to do it? Or, would you rather take the stairs and avoid the person from here on after? Jonathan first provides an elevator pitch assuming that your building is only 3 floors while provides the story of redemption, i.e. a summary of the Christian bible and how it relates to Black Widow in 25 minutes.
July 5th, 2020: Dan Forest continues our "Heroes, Villains and Redemption" with The Thing. How does the Gospel provide redemption for someone with deep bitterness and regret? Enjoy!
June 23rd, 2020: It's far easier to accuse someone of not meeting some sort of moral or ethical standard such as honor when the situation is favorable. But when the situation happens to be unfavorable, the tables turn and it's a whole different story. Jonny Cage and King Henry continue their GospelX series by discussing Season 3 Episode 6 of the 1990's X-Men Animated Series. Enjoy!
June 20th, 2020: Dick Grayson's constant struggle was to break the dreaded glass ceiling i.e. to be seen by his peers as a mature adult. Do you have a similar glass ceiling? Do your friends, family, parents, colleagues or employers constantly see you as immature? How does the Gospel provide redemption for Dick and those of us who share similar challenges? Jonathan Chan continues his "Heroes, Villains and Redemption" series with Nightwing. Enjoy!
To See Business and Working Professionals Become Exemplary Leaders by Living Exemplary Lives
Christianity today must go beyond mere religiosity and be a contributor to positive change for communities. We provide spaces and opportunities for business professionals to explore ways on how they can take the lead and add value for their communities and beyond by emulating Jesus' example who is THE Exemplary Leader.
Throughout his 15 years of working in the corporate world, Jonathan realized there was a disconnect between the Gospel he believed and his work. Therefore, after acquiring a Master of Divinity at Regent College in Vancouver to complement his Bachelors in Economics and Graduate Degree in Business at Simon Fraser University, he made it his life purpose to connect his theological training, business training and corporate executive experience so that his Christian faith was not merely a religious endeavor confined to one or two moments of the week but to have the Gospel be realized in every fabric of his life. This, he believed, was the exemplary life that business professionals have longed for. He found himself a group of like minded professionals and while helping each other to pursue this vision and mission, their group grew and a business community was born in 2011 called the Company of Disciples.
