Combining Business and Ministry is a Team Sport

Leading as a Entrepreneur, CEO or manager can often be a lonely place at the top. Finding people to serve with that share a passion for business and ministry can be even more elusive. 

Over a month ago, I was invited to visit a local C12 (www.c12group.com) gathering of Christian Businessmen here in Dallas. Don Barefoot, the President of C12, is a good friend and this was a great opportunity to spend some quality time with a local group of 12 CEO's here in Dallas. 

I walked away amazed by the experience. The level of accountability and authenticity was something that I think few people experience in their own church. It was inspiring to see Christian men being so incredibly transparent about both the challenges and opportunities they were experiencing. 

Trying to build a business in this economy can be tough. Building a business that can have a deep ministry impact is even more challenging. Its a road that's not meant to be walked alone. 

So if you're on this journey to combine business and ministry, please find someone. Find a mentor. Find a friend. Find someone in your business or find a local group like C12. Make yourself known to a group of guys because combining business and ministry is meant to be a team sport.
