Speaker: Jim Johnston 

Why is my work bringing me anything but purpose or satisfaction? Can I work harder to fix it?

Jim Johnston didn’t need a lightning bolt to hear God’s voice. Rather, a series of events led Jim to the end of himself -- and toward God.

In the mid ‘90s, Jim Johnston facilitated layoffs for Reynolds Metals Company and Kaiser Aluminum and remembers how that felt like a grinding down of the soul. “I was the guy in the office no one wanted to see. Everyone knew that when I was around, a layoff was coming.”

When he retired, Jim found a way to redeem the skills he developed in his position, and he began serving the unemployed.

Come hear how Jim’s story relates to yours and how you can find inspiration in the most unlikely of places.
