In his book, "Half Time," Bob Buford tells the story of meeting a renowned management consultant at a critical point in his life to determine what course the rest of his life would take. The man, named Mike, asked Buford one simple question, ‘What’s in the box?’

The point of this question was to have Buford decide what the most important thing in his life was to be and to place that choice ‘in the box.’ Now Buford was a successful Christian businessperson who found the lure of success (and we can say fame) waning in his life. He was discovering a stronger urge toward significance rather than success. That desire determined his answer to Mike’s question. It was Jesus Christ. As a result Buford started a ministry nearly a decade ago to help larger churches be more effective in their ministry. And Buford has found peace and satisfaction in his life.
