When you aren’t sure exactly which direction the Lord is calling you in life, how should you respond? What should we do when we don’t have a “long term” vision? This week on the podcast, we’ve got the next installment of our continuing interview series, the Tentmakers! This week, we’ll be interviewing Brent Thomas, who is a project manager and “solutions architect” in his new position with a software development company—a job he got after several months of following the Lord’s leading through some big changes in his life. We’ll chat about some of those changes, following God’s leading in “the next step”, being a witness in the workplace, and more; this is definitely an interview you won’t want to miss! We’ve also got a very special misisonFocus opportunity with InTheGap in Oklahoma City! All that and more, on this jam-packed episode of the Sharpening Character Podcast!
Tentmaker’s Interview with Brent Thomas
Brent received his Bachelor’s degree in Business administration at age 19 through a Christian College education program. He is currently a Solutions Architect (Project Manager) for a software development company in the Indianapolis, Indiana area. He is also very involved in RiseUp and Journey to the Heart, as well as several other ministries in his local area.
Isaiah 48:17 “I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.”

The doors are also open for their team to host after school Bible Clubs in school cafeterias & gyms.
They need at least 40 Leaders In Training to come to Oklahoma City and meet this tremendous need.
They are not looking for existing public speaking abilities, people skills, or teaching proficiency. Rather, they are looking for willing hearts, dedicated hands, and passionate minds to minister to the youth of this next generation.
