Love INC would like to thank all of those who attended our 4th Annual Breakfast Fundraiser held on September 19th, featuring keynote speaker Randy Lewis, author of “No Greatness Without Goodness: How a Father’s Love Changed a Company and Sparked a Movement.” We were also honored that Mark Greene, a client, agreed to share his story about how the Church has been walking alongside him during his time of need. After all, mobilizing the Church is one of the ways that Love INC supports the Church.
One thing that struck me as I listened to Mr. Lewis speak was his definition of what it takes to be a good leader. Randy expressed that the key is to remember that it isn’t about us, but that it’s about others. I want to be that kind of leader, a leader who encourages others and does what is best for them. This is carried out by Love INC’s commitment to giving a hand-up not a hand out. It takes more work but is well worth the effort.
Bill Ferrell (Love INC SW Board Member) interviewed Mark. While he was being interviewed, Mark was so transparent about his story, including his mistakes. Being transparent is the reason why I have grown so much in my personal and professional life. I really respect this quality in Mark and I am excited to see what God does with him and with his story.
Many new people attended who were learning about Love INC for the first time. Others at the fundraiser have been involved with Love INC in some way since we opened our doors over 5 years ago. Eric Lerew put it best when he said that it “feels good to be with people who love others.”
