Wow! The past several months have been an incredible blessing. Thank you to our readers, strategic partners, staff, family and friends who have encouraged and trusted us to assemble this publication.
Ever since John Faulkner (Co-Founder & Editor in Chief) first shared his vision for TwoTen with me,
"We have been humbled and amazed at God’s graciousness, provision and protection."Richard W. Hayes
The precious relationships that He has created have enabled us to deliver this multi-platform (distributed via print, web and iPad editions) Christian resource that inspires, encourages, and equips business leaders to use their influence to make an eternal impact for God’s Kingdom.
The TwoTen brand was inspired by the New Testament Bible verse Ephesians 2:10, which says; “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” In this issue, we are excited to share great stories and testimonies of how God has used ordinary people to execute His extraordinary purpose.
Many of the articles featured in this second edition of TwoTen Magazine are legacy-themed. Specifically, we learned about how to apply love-based leadership by interviewing Phil Hodges, co-founder of Lead Like Jesus and Joel Manby, CEO of Herschend Family Entertainment.
Heisman Trophy winning NFL quarterbacks Tim Tebow and Danny Wuerffel accept their unique ministry platforms and lay solid, vibrant foundations for others to follow.
Trusting God completely, John Rivers, CEO of 4Rivers Smokehouse, shares his true purpose and motivation.
Paul Abbott, CEO of Covington Aircraft, propels his vision, values and succession strategy into the next generation.
Angie Payne, CEO of A AAmerican Container and Texas State Senator Brian Birdwell, transform their personal suffering and pain into opportunities to help others know Jesus.
Craig and April Chapman present their formula for strategically and intentionally investing themselves in the Lord’s work.
