Online - How Do I Grow as a Whole-Life Disciple in Financial Services?
‘Is it possible to do what you do as a Christian?’

That was the arresting question LICC’s Work Forum Director Steve Osei-Mensah faced in the middle of a career that revolved around financial services. His response then – as now – was a resounding yes. Not only can you survive as a Christian in financial services – you can thrive and grow as a disciple.

If you’ve ever tackled similar questions about your career, join Steve and a panel of Christians working in banking, insurance, and asset management for the second of two seminars exploring what it means to be a whole-life disciple in FS.
