RCLI continues to inspire, equip, and release our region’s emerging Christian leaders . . . like Peyton. Enjoy a bit of his story.
As Peyton Cox, RCLI ’16, stepped out of RCLI’s year-long program, he was stepping into a new company as a Commercial Real Estate Broker. He recalls that he did so confidently with these RCLI take-aways in tow:
- An immediate network of 200-300 brothers and sisters who share an “unsaid bond” as Alumni
- Greater confidence in the relevance of the role of his faith in his work; and
- Hope, because he “heard inspiring stories of how the church is at work in the region that aren’t in the news” and “faced some emotions I wouldn’t have otherwise dealt with.”
Prior to RCLI, Peyton felt “limited” in terms of knowing the Richmond story and having broad relations that enabled him the opportunity to act on his heart for the region. Now, he can be described as an undeniable connector–combining his “thirst” for getting to know people, his professional role, and his service on the Board of LISC (Local Initiative Support Corporation), the YMCA Downtown Board, VCU’s Business School Foundation, and Chamber RVA’s Richmond Business Council.
He concludes, it “is deeply fulfilling to see how God uses our gifts for His work; it encourages me to do more.”
