Faith and Finance |

Businesses and nonprofits hear about faith and values in the marketplace

Over 110 business and nonprofit leaders attended the latest Faith and values in the marketplace workshop in Mount Hope, Ohio, on Monday, Nov. 13. The event, organized by Everence®, drew attendees from throughout Northeast Ohio who learned how others are incorporating their beliefs into everyday business practices.

Speakers included:

  • Beryl Jantzi, Everence Director of Stewardship Education (Does business matter to Jesus)
  • Ernest Hershberger of Homestead Furniture and John Schmid of Common Ground Ministries (Three generations in the marketplace)
  • Sam Yoder of Berlin Gardens (When your business grows)

Everence, along with MEDA (Northeast Ohio Chapter) and Amish & Mennonite Heritage Center, sponsored the event.

“It was inspiring to see this level of interest from Holmes and Wayne County business leaders – coming together to hear how faith and business can work together,” said David Miller, Charitable Services Representative with Everence.

Event speaker Beryl Jantzi added, “I was encouraged by the diversity of Anabaptist traditions, groups and families joining us to discuss common concerns about business and values.”
