Founder of Domino's Pizza: I'd be Like Hugh Hefner if it Wasn't for My Faith

"The most important thing I can do is help people get to heaven." -Tom Monaghan

(San Juan Capistrano, CA)—Speaking at JSerra Catholic High School on March 8, Tom Monaghan, founder of Domino's Pizza, shared his testimony of how wealth almost made him lose.

"The most important thing I [can] do is help people get to Heaven," the pizza mogul said during the meeting, according to Patch.com.

Tom MonaghanMonaghan, a former U.S. Marine who struggled financially for decades before becoming successful in business, said he went overboard in the 1980's when he became wealthy enough to buy fancy cars, yachts, and even the Detroit Tigers baseball team.

Noting that he could have turned into a Hugh Hefner-like person, his life changed when he read C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity and realized he had become the person he had never wanted to be.

Since then, Monaghan has reportedly sold many of his big possessions, has signed Bill Gates' "Giving Pledge" and now focuses on religious education and other charities.

According to a Christian Post report, he also "sold 93 percent of his share in Domino's to Bain Capital, Inc. in 1998 and dedicated his time to the church and pro-life causes."

"I would not be living out my faith if I did not use the abundant resources God has given me to help others," he said.
