    Statement of Faith:

Members of the Christian Business Roundtable agree:

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

All have sinned and are deserving of eternal death, yet are offered the gift of grace through Jesus Christ who died on the cross and was resurrected to life again.  The resurrection provides an avenue for our reconciliation to God the Father, granting us eternal life; and the Holy Spirit works within us to give spiritual strength and power.

The Bible offers complete control and authority over the lives of every believer, and that answers to all personal and business issues can be found in its pages.

That it is the privilege and responsibility of all believers to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to actively take part in fulfilling the Great Commission.

FAQs

Why does the Christian Business Roundtable exist?

It takes one to know one.  Each of us, wherever we are in WorkLife, faces unique pressures, worries, opportunities and challenges few others truly understand-unless they have ‘walked in our shoes'.  At the CBR each of us joins a stable of co-advisors to help us with our daily walk in business and in Christ.

How does a Christian Business Roundtable work?

Review the group types on the Roundtable Groups page to determine which fits your role in WorkLife.  Each group meets twice each month and is facilitated by a business person experienced at that level.  Each group is limited to 8-10 people for maximum impact.

Where do you meet?

Each Roundtable meets twice a month, once rotating among member's offices or convenient conference room, and once at a local restaurant.

What is expected from me?

Each member must be committed to hold all discussions confidential.  All are expected to give their time, share their experience and be prepared to challenge each other in their businesses and in their relationship with Christ.

Who should not join?

The CBR is not for those seeking to join a networking or leads group, or for those who are unable to commit to meeting twice a month.

Where can I get a schedule of meetings?
Each group determines its own meeting times and places.  Start with an email, letting us know where you are located and which specific group type you fit in.  You'll get a note or call for when your group will meet next.  You are welcome to 'test the water' before committing to a group.

What do you talk about at a meeting?
Every meeting begins with a Bible based business devotion and discussion which is applicable to all areas of worklife.  Every roundtable group shares the same devotion each month, so you know there are many others in the same study, at the same time.  The discussion then turns to a business best practices article or example, followed by member discussion of their own issues in their workplaces and lives.  Each group member may comment, provide their experiences and co-mentor each other in facing daily challenges together.  All meetings end with a personal accountability checklist and scorecard, along with group prayer.

Is the Roundtable group an alternative to a Bible study?
No.  An in-depth Bible study is recommended for all followers of Christ. 

Who may be a member of the Christian Business Roundtable?
Any person who has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and works in any business may become a member of a CBR group.
