John ‘JR’ Rennie – Discovering Joy Through Purpose

In this episode of Bleeding Daylight, I host a profound conversation with John J. R. Rennie, a seasoned entrepreneur who transitioned from running a successful business software company to founding Brushfires Ministry. John shares his journey of discovering true joy and fulfillment in life by aligning his personal agenda with God’s purpose. After nearly 40 years in the corporate world, a series of unexpected events led him to realize his calling to help others uncover their God-given purpose and experience genuine joy, despite life’s challenges.

John’s story is a testament to the power of obedience and the fulfillment that comes from doing what God created you to do. He discusses the lessons learned from his corporate career that have been instrumental in his ministry, emphasizing the importance of recognizing and utilizing one’s unique gifts. The conversation delves into the often-overlooked concept that true joy stems from living out one’s God-given design, and how John now dedicates his life to guiding individuals, families, and ministries towards this fulfilling path. Join me as we explore the transformative journey of finding purpose and joy in Christ.
