August 23rd Downtown Luncheon

August 15, 2017

JOSEPH HUNT

Joseph is a young entrepreneur who is passionate about encouraging others and helping them rise up to their full potential. He currently does that through his health and life coaching business, Rise Life Academy, which he started this last year.

Joseph grew up in a small town and lived a pretty modest life in the country but as long as he can remember he never let his small beginnings keep him from dreaming big and doing something meaningful for the world. His entrepreneurial spirit goes back to when he was 15 years old when he started his first business as a window washer. By the time he was 18 he got involved with a marketing company where he learned the art of sales and persistence and eventually ran his own branch office of direct sales representatives at the age of 20.

He then moved on to run a manufacturing company with his brother at the age of 21 where he was the chief of sales and was able to bring his families products into reputable chain stores like Market of Choice and Fred Meyers. This leads to where Joseph will be telling his story of facing his biggest battle yet, when his worldly sources of fulfillment and purpose were wiped away from him and how he became immersed in a place of brokenness, confusion, and depression.

Come and hear a story of redemption and how Joseph’s greatest trial led him to his greatest victory, which is a relationship with God and how he learned to live by faith and was slowly brought out of that darkness into a life of victory where he now pursues his purpose and passion of helping others rise up to their full potential and into a life of true fulfillment.

The Downtown Luncheon will take place on Wednesday August 23rd at 11:45 am. We will be meeting at a new location in the month of August.

Eastside April 19th Luncheon with Guest Speaker Robert Justus

April 7, 2017

 

Portland Business luncheons invites you to join us for lunch on April 19th. Our guest speaker will be Robert Justus.

His commitment to helping others began in his late teens when he worked in the once flourishing mining communities of Appalachia and then Arizona. When the mines shut down, Justus volunteered to work with unemployed families.

He witnessed destitute families lose their homes, families separate, and the suffering that poverty brings. The experience has been one of the driving forces behind his lifelong commitment to help low income and struggling people.

In 1991, after earning a Master’s in Theology with an emphasis on justice and peace education from the State University of New York, Justus started dating his wife and moved to her home town Portland, Oregon. There he founded JOIN in 1992, a non-profit aimed at finding permanent housing for homeless people.

In 2007, Justus also co-founded Home First Development, a company that builds affordable housing for low-income people affordably without government subsidy. He built 241 affordable apartment units in 2016 and will be breaking ground on 237 affordable units in 2017.

Justus lives with his wife, Liesl, on a floating home on the Columbia River. He has two college-aged children. In his spare time, he likes to hang out with homeless     people, at St. Francis Dining Hal because as he says, “they keep it real.”

The Eastside Location has moved to Warner Pacific at Egtvedt Hal. The address is 2219 SE 68th Ave., Portland, OR 97215.

Registration is required and cost of lunch is $20.00.

We look forward to seeing you on April 19th!
