Faith Lived Out

Walking Proof


Steve Reinemund served with PepsiCo for over 23 years, the last six of which he spent as the CEO. He retired as the Dean of the Business School at Wake Forest University in 2014. In this short video, he describes how the faithful life of his mother influenced him to pursue Christianity. In the business world, we often don’t have the liberty to speak openly about our faith. But the story that Steve shares highlights the value of faithfully living out our faith on a daily basis. 



Steve shared how his mother lived her faith every single day—even through some of the hardest experiences of life. He said, “You couldn’t watch her live and not know that she had a personal relationship with God.” Steve’s mother set a living example of Christian faith, and it profoundly impacted Steve and challenged him to live in the same way.
