강의 주제 (Lecture/Testimony Subject or Topic) : Living Proof of the Impact of Discipleship
강의 개요 (Synopsis of Lecture/Testimony):
The Mark Whitacre story is truly a story about how God transformed a man’s life from ashes to beauty by God using two men to reach out to Mark and to disciple him. Mark Whitacre is an Ivy League Ph.D. and is considered the highest-ranked executive of any Fortune 500 company to become a whistleblower in U.S. history, and was responsible for uncovering the ADM price-fixing scandal in the early 1990s. Mark’s testimony is extremely entertaining as he actively engages his audience about how he wore a wire for the FBI everyday traveling the globe for three years in one of the largest white-collar crime cases in U.S. history. But, more importantly his story is about hope, family commitment, redemption and second chances, and a wonderful example of a family overcoming extreme adversity only by the grace of God.
