Instructor/Facilitator: Maurice Painter
To Be Announced—is the proper perspective of the Christian business leader’s career. Abraham operated TBA until he was 75 years old; Moses until he was 80; Jeremiah until God said he was ready for deployment (Jeremiah 1.5). We know their stories from the Bible. Expect God to explain your TBA someday. He explained mine on December 31, 2017. Kierkegaard was correct: ‘Life is lived forward but understood backward.’
Success has been defined as the pursuit of the next goal. What is it about the pursuit that makes this the measure of success? It is in how you are stretched into the changes required by the new goal. That is, the skills and abilities you needed for your present level of performance are not adequate preparation for the requirements of the next level. Who is planning the steps of your pursuit and implementing each one? Why do you do the things you do?
Maurice Painter has been helping executives and their organizations to answer these questions for 50 years. He recognized that the stretch of pursuit was the correct measure of success early in his career. God has implemented the steps of His plan that gave Maurice experience in the four functions of any enterprise: sales & marketing, production & distribution, finance & administration, and planning & governance. The challenges that stretched him include growing a $100,000,000 portfolio of investment securities, leading mergers and acquisitions, and returning four companies to profitability. Now, after obtaining a Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership, God is stretching Maurice again into an even greater task. He continues to hear the words of John the Baptist from John 3.27 NLT: “No one can receive anything unless God gives it from heaven.” What a stretch!
