Purpose 103: Finding Purpose Through Service – Brian Schiele
Having a heart and a passion for service doesn’t always look the same. Sometimes, the way we conduct our businesses can also have God’s mission and our purpose in mind. My guest today sees his business in just this way—as a way to live out his calling to minister to God’s people.
Brian Schiele has been in the mortgage lending business for the past 15 yrs, and he sees his job as the perfect opportunity to serve others. Your home is your largest asset, and many people come to Brian and Fellowship Home Loans with a dream. Brian makes those dreams financially possible. For Brian, mortgages are all about the stories of people and what they are looking to accomplish. He was lucky and found a business that enabled him to use his passion for people and gift with numbers together. He grew his business not just so he could make a lot of money, but so he could help a lot of people.
