Kurt Braun has one of the coolest titles ever! He also has an amazing life story. Scott and Kurt discuss the unique challenges Kurt has faced from being in New York on 911 to making the transition from the business world to full time ministry.

Group Questions:

  1. A huge part of Kurt Braun’s testimony is being in New York City on 9/11. Where were you on that day and what do you remember about the day and following week?
  2. When you hear the word “finances,” what is your first reaction? Do you have peace or anxiety? Do you feel like you have financial freedom and stability, or financial fear and uncertainty?
  3. Before Kurt came on staff at Southland, he was a Christian man working in the business world, and had some encounters where his faith and work were opposing one another. have you ever  been in that situation? What did you learn?
  4. What tensions do you face at your specific job where you find yourself being torn between maintaining integrity and excelling at work?
  5. Because of his interactions in NYC on 9/11, Kurt said “we all have those moments in our lives where we maybe get the sense that there is more going on than just what we are witnessing.”  Looking back, can you see God’s hand and provision at work in a moment when it seemed he was absent?
  6. Read Colossians 3:23-24. How can you work with all your heart for the Lord in your current employment? Do you ever struggle with the tension of working for “human masters” and working for the Lord?
  7. As a Christian, you are the church. Wherever you go, the church goes. When you’re at work, you have an opportunity to bring Jesus into conversations and dealings with people everyday. What are some conversations you know you will have this week and how can you bring Jesus into the conversation?
  8. A phrase around our church is “do for the one what you wish you could do for the many.” Who is one person you can go above and beyond for this week at your workplace? How can you show them God's love?
