      • Additional bios of presenters for Christ in the Marketplace…Wisdom in Everyday Living:
        • Patrick “Pat” Stillman loves the Lord Jesus and thrives on challenges. From sports (Division 1 & semi-pro football) to business (self-employed business owner/operator/investor and entrepreneur) to family life (married to Beulah for 53 years, with four children, 18 grandchildren, & one great-grandson) to non-profit ministry (Board member at Cairn University for 29 years), God’s grace and strength have carried Pat through many, varied experiences. A more recent diagnoses of a form of skin cancer has presented another challenge, and an opportunity to view and live life in growing gratitude and trust. God has blessed Pat with a love for wisdom, which applies both to the marketplace and everyday living.
        • Ken Brown is President and CEO of MKT Metal Manufacturing in York, PA. In April of this year, MKT was named 2018 Manufacturer of the Year by the Manufacturer’s Association of South Central PA for “their contribution to the local community/economy, dedication to their employees, and active membership in the Manufacturers Association.” Ken and Pat are partners in this business, and share a desire to positively impact their communities, and to model a respect for others and a love for God. Ken and Deb enjoy their family of five children and four grandchildren.
