Don Flow: How do you live faithfully?

The owner of a major automobile sales company in North Carolina describes how he integrates Christian faith into his business practices while respecting others’ beliefs.

Don Flow follows a calling to institutionalize Christian beliefs in a pluralistic marketplace. Using the question of how a Christian lives faithfully in the modern world as his framework, he is building not only a successful enterprise, but also a model for doing business as a Christian leader. Asserting that “wealth, properly considered, is critical for the flourishing of life,” Flow intentionally embodies belief in practice, hoping to transform the business environment in a way that embodies Christian principles.

After doing his undergraduate work at the University of Virginia and working most positions in his father’s large auto sales business, Flow earned a master’s degree in business administration from Wake Forest University. He went on to build his own auto franchise, using his vision of infusing Christian principles in the marketplace. Today, Flow Companies has 900 employees and 31 franchises in Winston-Salem, Greensboro and Fayetteville, N.C., and Charlottesville, Va.
