Priorities are what we do. Everything else is just talk!
“My C12 meeting day is the best possible use of my time. I get the finest of business best-practices, the advice of like-minded peers, accountability, and challenges that help me grow spiritually – all in a single day. As I work to keep up and grow, C12 provides exactly what I need.”

“I have been participating in the North Philly C12 group since it started in September, 2008. I had been contemplating joining other business peer groups and have thankfully found C12 at the right time and have found a “home” there. I have been both challenged and encouraged by the content, the relationships and the accountability of my peers. I have found the business acumen to be top-notch and the fellowship to be sincere.
My participation in C12 has been an opportunity to both give and receive – exactly what we, as Jesus-following business people, need as we grow in our relationship with Him and as we continue down the path toward fulfilling the work He has called us to.”

“I joined C12 because it seemed to offer what I needed at this point in my career and life, and after seven months I can say it has exceeded all my expectations. It is good to be surrounded by like-minded men and women who desire to please God with their choices and businesses. The monthly meetings have helped reinforce my personal and ministry priorities, with specific “To-Do’s” and personal accountability to the C12 Group. Prayer is an important part of each meeting and I know that specific prayer requests are prayed for during the month. And, I have access to an advisory group that shares best practices in the business realm that have application to the ministry I have been called to at Christ’s Home.”

“It is truly a blessing to recive advice and counsel from a group that has such wisdom and hearts for God. As my family put it, 'Can you go to C12 more often?' I think that says it all."

"Before I knew of C12, I knew I needed C12. As a Christian business owner who loves the lord, I want to run my business in an ethical, Christ-loving way. C12 gives me the foundation and structure to do just that. Meeting in a small group of fellow Christian business owners, we all share the problems, experiences, and joys of running a business as a faithful Christian. Knowing we all have a business by the grace of God blesses us with the humility we need to always remember who we are working for.
I would bet 95% of people would say loving Jesus and owning a business are mutually exclusive. Nothing could be further from the truth. Business ownership is one of the greatest ways to promote and live the Gospel, while spreading the Good News by action; not just word.”
