There is an unspoken crisis that can happen to every Christian leader in the marketplace, political world and non-profit arena. We call it DRIFT. Every leader and every organization has to guard against losing or even abandoning their God-given moral compass and purpose. This challenge is especially prevalent when being a faith-driven leader is becoming increasingly counter-cultural. When an entire culture DRIFTS in an un-Christ-like direction, the rip-tide currents of that DRIFT can suck even the greatest of Christian leaders off course with disastrous consequences.
You won’t want to miss this transformative event on how you can protect yourself from DRIFT and fulfill your God-given purpose personally & professionally.
In this common pursuit event you will discover:

Mark Whitacre is a seasoned executive who is extremely appreciative of redemption and second chances in America. I thank God for a second chance ! Blessed to keep my family intact during some very difficult times in the mid-1990s. An amazing wife of 42 years, who held everything together during some tremendous adversity. I don’t take that lightly. I thank God every day for my wife, Ginger!
Mark Whitacre is the highest-level executive to ever turn whistleblower in U.S. history. His undercover work with the FBI during the ADM scandal was the inspiration for the major motion picture, “The Informant,” starring Matt Damon as Mark Whitacre. And was the inspiration for the Discovery Channel Documentary, titled “Undercover” which is linked on the landing page of this website. Drawing from his unique history, Mark provides one-of-a-kind insight into corporate ethics, corporate greed, and the warning signs of a flawed corporate leadership.
After completing B.S. and M.S. degrees at Ohio State University, Mark then earned his Ph. D. degree at Cornell University in Nutritional Biochemistry. Mark then worked for multiple Fortune 500 companies including Ralston Purina, Degussa (Evonik), and Archer Daniels Midland (ADM). Mark was hired at ADM when he was 32, and as the president of the BioProducts Division from it’s launch, was the youngest Divisional President in the history of the company. In just six years, their fermentation complex became one of the largest in the world. At age 35, he became a Corporate Vice President of ADM and was the leading candidate to become the next company president.
Dr. Whitacre has extensive international business experience, having lived for almost four years in West Germany, working for an international company. He has also been involved with two international companies in the Southeast Asia market and traveled the region dozens of times. Mark’s more than two decades of top management experience at Fortune 500 and international companies, as well as his experience with the ADM price-fixing scandal and the FBI, give him a unique, seasoned perspective on leadership in the corporate world. As Mr. Douglas Burris, Chief of U.S. Federal Probation in the Eastern District of Missouri has stated publicly, “The story about Mark Whitacre’s redemption and second chance is one of the most inspirational stories of our time.”
