John Gillespie with Access Financial Group offered prayer for area business leaders and professionals. He asked the Lord to protect in particular those business leaders who have chosen to “stand firm for their faith and they have been thrust into the national spotlight.”

The Christian founders of Oklahoma City-based Hobby Lobby are waging a court battle against a federal mandate requiring them to provide their employees with contraception and drugs the owners believe induce abortion.

Doll, 58, of Princeton, N.J., recommended participants search their hearts to discover their true motivations. He also urged them not to get so caught up in careers that they forget their creator.

“In 100 years, what does it matter what job I've done? My sense of worth comes not from a job, a career or my portfolio assets. A sense of worth comes from recognizing whose I am.”
