Anyone running a business or non-profit will want to read Lakefront Roofing & Siding Supply General Manager and JPUSA Covenant Church pastoral board member Tim Bock’s books, especially this one.
UNLESS THE LORD BUILDS THE HOUSE
The Story of JPUSA’s Mission Business
By Tim Bock
Unless the Lord Builds the House is one man’s story of a life in Mission-Business at the intentional community Jesus People USA Covenant Church in Chicago, IL. Beginning in 1978, Tim Bock relates his journey of joy and sadness, failure and success, bringing the light of Christ into the business community, and sharing the proceeds with the least of these in their neighborhood.
JPUSA has run over 30 businesses in over 40 years of being together. Lessons learned in what works, what doesn’t and why will hopefully inspire you in your work to truly trust the statement; “Unless the Lord Builds the House”, we could be working in vain.
