Networking Event: Sustaining a Christ-Centered Business in a Changing World

Running a Christ-Centered Business (1020x400)

Being a Christian in business can be challenging.  Being a Christian business can be even harder.  Join us on the campus of Messiah College to learn how one well-known Christian company has not only survived but thrived because of its firm faith commitment.

Hear leaders of Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe describe some of the challenges they’ve faced over many years and how they’ve stayed true to their motto: “Whatever it takes, God helping us.”  Rooted in faith and family, Martin’s strives to honor God by making the best quality products, delivered with excellence.

The networking breakfast will be held in the beautiful new Martin Commons addition to Lottie Nelson Dining Hall.  Scott Heintzelman ‘89 will be serving as the moderator for an engaging and enlightening panel discussion  featuring leadership from Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc. including Tony Martin, Joseph Martin ’98, Julie Martin ‘95, and Jackie Martin ’02.

This event took place at The Martin Commons (located at Lottie Nelson Dining Hall inside the Eisenhower Campus Center at Messiah College) on Wednesday, April 20, 2016.
