Brand new book revision and website

Every Lakefront customer and vendor, as well as anyone running a business or non-profit will want to read General Manager Tim Bock’s books, especially this one.

The Story of JPUSA’s Mission Business

By Tim Bock

Unless the Lord Builds the House is one man’s story of a life in Mission-Business at the intentional community Jesus People USA Covenant Church in Chicago, IL. Beginning in 1978, Tim Bock relates his journey of joy and sadness, failure and success, bringing the light of Christ into the business community, and sharing the proceeds with the least of these in their neighborhood.

JPUSA has run over 30 businesses in over 40 years of being together. Lessons learned in what works, what doesn’t and why will hopefully inspire you in your work to truly trust the statement; “Unless the Lord Builds the House”, we could be working in vain.
