Snow storms and 9News seem to play a recurring role in building faith venture businesses in the Denver area.
11 year ago, a major snow storm and a 9News live remote played a key role in boosting the profile of Bud’s Warehouse, a business as mission that hires individuals rebuilding lives from homelessness, addiction and prison. This past November, the pattern repeated itself when 9News used the season’s first snow storm to profile Metal Mover’s snow tire business.
But people probably don’t realize that Metal Movers is one of the area’s most exciting for-profit faith ventures, committed to employing ex-offenders and other individuals rebuilding lives while serving the community.
Metal Mover’s has grown rapidly in 6 years largely because of the passion and tremendous personal story of founder George Medley. It started a short time ago with George and his wife pulling cars with a tow rope. Very quickly it has blossomed into multi-million dollar firm employing over 35 employees as a metal recycler, car dealer, used car part retailer, tow truck operator, and used tire retailer.
The company’s success provides more evidence that God loves to bless firms that operate in the sweet spot of working to rebuild lives through recycling materials. It also shows that there's nothing like the influence of a man who has experienced God's love.
Churches and other organizations in the Denver area that want to learn more about business as mission need to meet George Medley and discover his passion for sharing God’s love.
