Taking Ownership While Giving Glory to God
With Matt Wilson, PhDRSVP Here
Matthew F. Wilson, Ph.D., serves as Associate Director of the Human Flourishing Program at Harvard University. In addition to his research agenda, Matthew is responsible for many of the program’s administrative and operational functions. Prior to receiving a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Baylor University, Matthew led a successful corporate career where he held various roles in finance, marketing, and product management. He holds an M.B.A. in Marketing from Indiana University, a B.A. in Economics from Wake Forest University, and a M.A. in the Philosophy of Religion from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. His dissertation, “The Virtue of Taking Ownership”, is an exploration of a virtue, hitherto unidentified by virtue ethicists, governing the proper mode of engagement in discrete projects, particularly multi-party projects. It is a work of practical moral philosophy, incorporating recent work from the philosophy of emotions, moral psychology, and contemporary virtue ethics. His interest in the study of individual virtues is motivated by his belief that philosophy has practical value for human flourishing. https://twitter.com/MattWilsonPhD

Food and Fellowship for Men of All Ages.
Please join us for an end of Summer BBQ. Brats and marinated chicken sandwiches on the grill, with a fresh harvest of tomatoes and corn.
Primarily it will be a fellowship time. A time to check in and see how we are doing and hang out together. We will also share with the men a season schedule for Men’s Ministries.
We are following the theme that we kicked off on May 1st with Dr. Jim Singleton. You may recall that his theme was: “Becoming a better leader in today’s post Christian World: At work, in the church; and in the family.” Jim did a great job of setting the stage for the next few talks. Our current thinking is that we want to invest in a few sessions of being a Christian Leader at Work; in business or in academia or medicine.
Incarnate Leadership, Lessons from our Lord
Becoming a better leader in today’s complex “post-Christian” world; at work, in the church, and in the family.
Wednesday, May 1

Be challenged to step up to a higher level of leadership at home, in the workplace, and in the church.
