I grew up going to church, so Christianity was always a strong presence in my life. It wasn’t until I went to college, however, that I truly made my faith my own. It was at that point that my relationship with Jesus really strengthened and, through my studies, my interest in business began. Depending on the industry, being a believer in business can be difficult, and through this conference, I really hope to help people to live out their faith on a daily basis at work.

I heard the gospel when I was 9 years old, a big fan of fables and fairy tales. The gospel quickly linked my knowledge about ghosts and heaven together and made them have more sense to me. As I opened my heart to accept God and his words, God enlightened me with the truth of life and guided me to do right things and do things rightly. Now my faith is more than fable and fairy tale. It is the foundation of my life that brings unfading peace and joy to me every day.

My faith is very important to me. I also know that I will devote a lot of time and energy, over the course of of my life, to work. Getting involved with the Believers in Business Student Advisory Board was the perfect way to help me better understand and practice ways in which I can integrate these two aspects of my life. I look forward to engaging with fellow business school students and the keynote speakers, to hear and to learn ways in which we have all continued to strengthen our relationship with the Lord throughout our careers.
Paul Hogge, University of North Carolina, Kenan-Flagler Business School, MBA 2016
Paul began his Christian journey after attending a conference called Passion during his freshman year in college. After this conference, God used older mentors to guide Paul through his initial time as a Christ-follower, and it’s been an adventure ever since! Paul has seen firsthand how God uses time spent in the workplace and hopes to learn more about the opportunities within the business community. At the Believers in Business Conference, he looks forward to being encouraged by tangible examples of God using broken vessels for His glory.
