Our guest today is Jimmy Pak. Jimmy is the founder and managing director of Net-Makers Limited, which is an IT and business consulting company based in Hong Kong. After working 20 years in global corporations, he started Net-Makers with a vision of using business to serve God.
In our conversation with Jimmy, we talk about the traits of an entrepreneur, how he initially believed that faith & work integration meant evangelism, and how he now sees his business as contributing to God’s mission of reconciliation in the world.
Highlights from the podcast:
The traits of an entrepreneur
How Jimmy started his IT and business consulting company
How his previous paradigm about God’s kingdom was one where evangelism and work in the church was more important than his work in business, and how that led him to invest his evenings, weekends, and vacations to volunteer at church and go on short-term missions, which eventually led him to burnout
How Jimmy no longer feels guilty not serving in the church, because he knows that he is serving God from Monday to Saturday in his business
How Jimmy sees his calling in business as contributing to God’s mission of reconciliation in the world
