Generous Business Practices

Business for the Common Good 2020

What does it mean to be a truly generous business leader? How does this impact our sense of identity and ownership? How much money should we give away, and how much should we keep? Do ancient Old Testament practices like gleaning have relevance for how we think about hiring, investing, and “successful” businesses? What kind of investment returns should we target? This session considers how a deep sense of generosity transform our culture as well as our hearts.

Alan Barnhart

Alan’s fear of affluence caused him to cap his lifestyle.  His passion for missions has taken him to over 50 countries.  The company profits are invested in strategic missions.  Barnhart team members and spouses take part in the decision-making process.  Over 50 team members have traveled internationally in that effort. Alan has an amazing wife, Katherine, and 6 children (28, 25, 23, 21, 18, and 15) and two daughters-in-law. He is active at First Evangelical Church and the Boy Scouts.
