How Can Faith and Business Work Together?
The modern business world can often be seen as a cutthroat environment focused on creating the most amount of wealth for yourself. This environment can understandably be seen as running counter to the gospel message of the Bible. Is there a way for our faith in Jesus to mix with the competitive business world? How can Christians be missional in the way we do business? Is it possible to be a successful businessperson and a dedicated follower of Christ?In the season 1 finale of Asking the Why, we sit down with Ben Trinh, a CEO of a nation-wide company with over 300 employees, and dive deep into questions around faith and the workplace. As a CEO and a bible college graduate, Ben gives unique insight from his own experiences as a businessperson and a Christian while challenging the way we perceive our workplace.If you are interested in the topic of what a successful life looks like, join us for a special YMI event called The Daily Grind: What's it all for?

What is my calling?
What career path should I go down? Which relationship should I enter in to? Where should I live? For many of us followers of Jesus, these questions can depend on what we feel God is calling us to do with our lives. In church language today, the term ''calling" usually refers to a Christian discovering a specific job, ministry role, or use of gifts and talents that is out there for them. But for many of us who feel like we haven’t found that special calling, we can sometimes feel like we are outside the will of God or failing as a follower of Christ. So how then can each of us find out what the call of God is for our lives?Join us for Episode 4 of the Asking the Why series as we sit down with pastor and author Jon Coombs and gives some practical advice as we look at the question “What is my calling?”

How Should the Church Approach Singleness?
In church today, there tends to be an expected path that a young person is meant to take: Youth Group > Young Adults Group > Young Married > Young Families, etc. And yet, what happens to our single brothers and sisters who don't fit into that mold? In our first episode with author Kimberly Smith, we discuss how the church can adapt to include the growing numbers of singles and ultimately ensure that they feel a full member of the family of God.
