Global Partners in Hope’s In-Country Director for Asia, Jon Sperling, is collaborating with U.S. and Chinese business professionals and leaders to create a new program to add to our services in China. GPiH has hosted several leadership conferences within regions of China, and we now plan to expand that mission with this initiative. The inspiration for the program is “Faith at Work”, demonstrating how we can live our faith in our everyday jobs.
This month Jon and Peggy Sperling traveled to China to meet with leaders and further develop plans for the “Faith at Work” program. In only 6 days, nearly 150 people attended initial training and vision-casting for the new program.
The vision for “Faith at Work” is to teach at 6 large, weekend-long conferences throughout the year. The program also provides follow-up material for small group meetings, and also encourages individual mentor relationships. Jon and Peggy shared several individuals’ perceptions and connections to the development of the program in their monthly newsletter. (2017 March Letter). GPiH is excited about the development of this program to promote greater leadership and mentorship cultures within Chinese businesses.
