At some point, every employee faces a personal problem that interferes with their work life. When challenges arise, business leaders can be proactive to help their people recover through corporate chaplaincy. CEOs and business owners must realize that they only know a small portion of their staff’s struggles. Employees won’t readily run to you for help, but if a relationship already exists with a company-sponsored chaplain, they may willingly turn to them for support.Read More

The old saying, “actions speak louder than words,” rings especially true for business owners and CEOs.

Often we build our own road blocks by allowing some “logical” reasoning to stand in the way of openly glorifying God in our marketplace. Jesus provided the perfect pattern for Christian ministry — He came, not to be served, but to serve others (Matthew 20:28; Mark 10:45; John 13:1-17).

Do you consider your leadership role a calling from God?
At C12, we believe we are stewards of the businesses God has entrusted us to run for Him. We are blessed with a unique opportunity to minister to others.

The process of doing business, by definition, brings us into contact with many people. We recognize our need to be intentional and prepared to respond to His call.Read More
