Sunday night in Las Vegas shook the town and, tragically, saw the loss of life to over 50 and caused injuries to over 400 participants at the Route91 Christian Music Festival. The deranged gunman who fired at them was shooting from the Mandalay Bay hotel, where Jason Hartman happened to be attending a meeting.

Jason took some time Monday evening to reflect on his experience as the realization dawned on him, and the other meeting attendees, that someone was shooting at people on the ground. He also talks to his friend, Larry, who stayed at the meeting a little longer and ended up being locked into the hotel and having to spend the night in the meeting room. Larry tells about the scare they received in the room, how the situation was handled, and when he was allowed to leave.

Greg began his career with McKinsey & Company, serving clients in a wide range of industries including manufacturing, retail, and healthcare.  He then worked as an investment professional for the private equity firm Advent International, where he focused on investments in the healthcare sector.  After earning his MBA from Harvard Business School in 2015, Greg joined Nashville-based healthcare technology startup naviHealth as vice president of product development and innovation.

It was while taking a Harvard Divinity School course called God & Money that Greg began to think deeply about the intersection of faith and finance. As he came to the startling conclusion that underpins God and Money (formerly titled Through the Needle)—that Christians are called to a radical level of generosity—he began to move beyond tithing and embrace a financial strategy centered on giving.  Greg now hopes to experience the incredible joy and satisfaction that comes only through generously serving God with his wealth.  He also aspires to participate in the mobilization of God’s church to launch a wave of generosity never before experienced on earth.
