Who Are You Running With?

It can be lonely out front. As an Owner, CEO, or Executive, everyone looks to you for the answers, direction and confidence. You can discuss your leadership struggles with friends, but do they really understand the challenges you face, and live them out daily? Do you have a group of peers who share the same Biblical worldview and eternal perspective encouraging and challenging you?

Scripture states, we are to run the race to win. “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.” (1 Corinthians 9:24)


Imagine running with a tribe of highly-accomplished, biblically trustworthy peers, navigating the real-time ups and downs of life and business together? This group will keep your eyes on the real prize in life, and come alongside you through the course of building a great business for a greater purpose.  


Thousands of Christian business owners and leaders like you have found The C12 Group a helpful resource in navigating the course. This Christian business peer advisory forum acts as a compass, keeping members sharp as a Christian, parent, spouse and employer.


Hear from three C12 members running together in groups of like-minded peers across the country.

“The C12 Group has been a paramount part of my success at work, at home and in ministry. I have gained some of my greatest friends through C12. They are my accountability partners.

I wish I could spend even more time at C12 as I always come away with new ideas, a fresh perspective and a renewed outlook.”
