Inscapes - Everyone Leads - An Entrepreneurial Approach to Vocation

July 25, 2018

In this episode of the Inscape podcast, Dr. Joshua Miller speaks with Chris Lowney about taking an entrepreneurial approach to vocations in the Catholic Church. Chris is a one-time Jesuit seminarian; he later served as a Managing Director of J.P. Morgan & Co on three continents. He is a popular keynote speaker who has lectured in more than two-dozen countries, on leadership, business ethics, decision-making and other topics. Whether a vocation to the priesthood, religious life, or entrepreneurship, the message is the same: All must lead. Every personal vocation is a call from God to image him in a way that has never been imaged before, nor ever will be. This is our great and awesome responsibility.
