9: When Faith & Business Collide with Cary Curry

9: When Faith & Business Collide with Cary Curry

What do you think of when you hear the words Car Dealer?
Well today’s guest is going to completely shatter whatever words came to your mind.

Cary Curry is the fourth generation owner of Curry Auto Center, selling new General Motors automobiles for over 100 years in Bloomington, Indiana. His story encompasses the car business, his family roots, and the intersection of faith and work through Cary’s calling to disciple college men.

We talk with Cary about the keys behind his successful career, his wrestle to leave it all behind and go into full time ministry, and how God ultimately revealed the greatest opportunity to impact others had already been placed right in front of him.

As you will soon discover, Cary is one of the most solid, generous, wise and humble men you will ever encounter. He has every reason in the world not to be humble because he has been so successful, but that is truly one of the keys behind his great success. He humbly loves, honors, and serves not only his customers, but his employees and the entire community around him.  We know you will be as impacted as we were by our conversation with Cary Curry. Enjoy!

    Chris and Jennie, Thank you for the interview with Cary Curry. I grew up as a neighbor of Cary and went to school with all of the Graebe boys. Spreading the news about Cary and his philosophy is great. My son David started off being discipled by Cary when he was in junior high. David now has a degree in Theology from Moody Bible Institute and works for Wheeler Missions in Indianapolis. I feel that Cary had a great impact on David and his life. Thank you again.

    Not one bit surprised of the Godly life Cary continues to live. He is sharing and mentoring all the time. What he does is just what all of us should do. Have known Cary since he was an early teenager – I would be sitting on the baseball bleachers at the Little League park and Cary would come to be with his mother and other parents – from band practice – as his brother, Greg would be playing baseball. Great man and family.
