The RJ Moeller Show: Hugh Whelchel and Tim King

Our first guest this week on “The RJ Moeller Show” is Hugh Welchel, the executive director of the Institute for Faith, Work & Economics. Hugh Whelchel Over six years ago, Hugh stepped out of a successful business career to share his executive experience with Reformed Theological Seminary’s struggling Washington, D.C., campus, where he served as executive director and guest professor. Prior to his position at RTS, he spent 15 years in the IT industry, helping turn around several regional companies. In addition to his business acumen, Hugh has a unique passion and expertise in helping individuals integrate their faith and vocational calling. He is the author of “How Then Should We Work? Rediscovering the Biblical Doctrine of Work,” which was released in May 2012. Mr. Welchel shares with us some of his experiences in both the private sector and think tank world, and we discuss the key themes addressed in his recent book. The second half of this week’s episode is dedicated to a conversation RJ recorded with two familiar faces/voices: Timothy King of Sojourners and our old pal Eric Teetsel of the Manhattan Declaration. A native of New Hampshire, and graduate of North Park University, Tim is a former community organizer in Chicago, and he’s been with Sojourners since 2008. He frequently posts thought-provoking pieces at God’s Politics Blog. Tim is a young man who takes his faith very seriously, and he has committed his life to affecting real change in matters of poverty and justice. Follow our friend Tim King on Twitter at @tmking. Tim, Eric and RJ offer a few thoughts on the first presidential debate, the way poverty relief is being addressed by both sides, and we discuss a new film that Sojourner’s has produced entitled “The Line.” Stream the episode below, head over to Stitcher.com, or subscribe to “The RJ Moeller Show” for free on iTunes.
