C&MA Canada's New Ventures interviewed Jonathan Chan, founder of Company of Disciples on his journey in starting an organization devoted in building exemplary leaders by empowering people to live exemplary lives.
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.
