Have you ever wondered whether you shoud “go into missions” and how that compares to “getting a job”? Come listen to Michael Minott, Econ ’91, explode the notion that this is an either/or choice.
Michael makes his living doing property development in the private sector and is very involved in missions work through his church. But his missions work is an extension of his professional training and expertise, not a departure from it.
Of interest not only to Econ majors but to all who are wondering how their professional interests can best contribute to the flourishing of others!
