Episode 16: Gary Ringger

October 17, 2019

In this episode, Jedd talks with Gary Ringger, who shares how God led him from the desperation and depression of a crumbling business … to harnessing a thriving business enterprise to fuel Kingdom mission.

In this episode, you'll explore:

  • How experiences of “wilderness,” including depression, can forge character and a new vision for life.

  • How surrender to God’s will shifts your paradigm from ownership to service.

  • How an intentional prayer life can remake your definition of success.

  • How to receive good gifts God has for you by leaning into your own brokenness.

  • Radical Business: From Ownership to Stewardship.

  • Lifesong.org

Key Quotes:

"I see in me many times where I’ve had to be broken to really…understand how much I need Him." - Gary Ringger

"I used to not like being broken – and I still don’t really like it – but that is the way God pursues many of us…And then that relationship gets rich." - Gary Ringger

"It is not just the situations themselves that are transformative, but how we choose respond to them…and the habits we develop along the way." - Jedd Medefind
