Bill Hendricks, founder of the Giftedness Center in Dallas, to speak on ‘Passion, Purpose and Prayer: What’s the Spiritual Capital of Your Business?’
Harvest Family Entertainment (whose projects include Hawaiian Falls waterparks) and CNL are sponsoring a free prayer breakfast 8 to 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 17 at the Rosen Centre Hotel, 9840 International Drive, adjacent to the Orange County Convention Center, for attractions professionals in town for the IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando, Florida.
“We want to invite IAAPA attendees to join us as we come together for prayer, fellowship and a free breakfast,” said David Busch, CEO of Harvest Family Entertainment. “Bill Hendricks, founder of the Giftedness Center in Dallas, will present a free program on ‘Passion, Purpose and Prayer: What’s the Spiritual Capital of Your Business?’ We would love to connect with more faith-minded people in our industry to share how we incorporate our faith into our businesses.”
Harvest Family Entertainment has built and operated waterparks from the South Pacific to China and across the United States, ranging from mega-regional parks to successful community waterparks. Current projects include five Hawaiian Falls waterparks in Texas and the development of Splash Canyon in Las Vegas.
“People never just work for a paycheck,” said Bill Hendricks. “They also seek a payoff. They’re looking for rewards from their jobs that go deep into the heart of who they are and why they were placed here. That yearning to experience spiritual satisfaction from work offers a huge opportunity to business owners and leaders. Tap into people’s God-given strengths and highest aspirations, and you’ll find an inexhaustible wellspring of energy that changes the employment game from a transaction to a transformation.”
