NFL EXECUTIVE SPEAKS
OF BOLDNESS AS A BUSINESS LEADER
entrepreneur and National Football League executive Wayne Huizenga, Jr.
changed teams four years ago, and he is eager to score points for his new
Huizenga spoke to an audience
of nearly 200 people in the Grand Lobby March 15. The president of Huizenga
Holdings, Inc. discussed the impact that his conversion to Christianity
has had on his career and personal life. He cited Mark 12:30 - the command
to love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength - as a verse
that provides spiritual guidance and focus.
"God is the best business
partner any Christian can have," he said. "I'm incredibly blessed to be
a Christian in corporate America. God wanted me to take Him to the office.
I am to be bold and use my public platform to share the Good News."
Huizenga, who also is a board
member of the Miami Dolphins professional football franchise that his father
owns, discussed how his newfound faith brought not only peace within himself
but also some tension at work. He was determined to set an example for
his family, colleagues, and employees that his faith is the new compass
for his life's direction by setting aside uninterrupted time for prayer,
meditation, and worship.
"When I allow time for God
to invest in me, I'm more in His will," he said. "As long as I'm in His
will, everything He wants me to do gets done. It's important for me to
remain faithful to Him in that way."
President Steven Timmermans
invited Huizenga to the College to help launch a Christian business leaders
network. A group of Trinity alumni is trying to developing a network to
offer professional and educational opportunities that would emphasize Christian
values in business. Huizenga applauded the group's initiative and encouraged
them to maintain their commitment to their aspiration.
