WELCOME TO LIFE FELLOWSHIP BUSINESS LEADERS

Pastor Chris Lindberg has a heart to serve the business leaders of Life Fellowship Church. Our desire is to equip business leaders to have strong relationships with God and their families while running successful businesses and achieving their God-given destinies.

Life Fellowship Business Leader’s vision is to build God’s kingdom by accelerating the business leaders’ success and influence. Our mission is to train, equip, and disciple Christian business owners and corporate leaders to effectively apply Biblical principles and best practices to fulfill God’s unique calling in their lives and in the marketplace.

It is estimated that during the work week in the United States, over 55% of our waking hours are spent in a workplace environment. For many, work has little connection with their faith, but at Life Fellowship we believe faith is relevant to everyday life, including your business and business leadership. By offering relevant curriculum, leveraging innovative technology, and cultivating authentic relationships in a safe and protected environment, we help business leaders ground their work and leadership in God’s original design and purpose for business.

Please note, Life Fellowship Business Leaders is NOT A NETWORKING ORGANIZATION. We understand business opportunities might occur organically but we prohibit overt networking and solicitation. Our desire is to provide a safe place for business leaders to connect, learn, gain insights from others, and receive training from subject matter experts.

We are excited about the prospect of coming alongside you in this journey!

BUSINESS LEADER GROUPS

Many Christian business owners and leaders feel isolated in business. At times, they feel they are constantly looked at as sales targets. They need a safe, confidential environment to build authentic peer relationships by sharing personal, professional, and spiritual challenges. The Business Leader groups provides a place for men and women to grow in their walk with God and integrate faith in every area of their lives. They are also able to solicit candid feedback and work through situational issues in order to make informed decisions. The custom-designed curriculum and discussion questions provide opportunities for members to shape or develop business policies and best practices that are consistent with Biblical principles.

Life Fellowship Business Leader groups are made up of 8-10 people meeting on a regular basis with a dedicated facilitator. These groups provide an opportunity to connect with other business leaders who have comparable business and leadership experience. Group meetings are designed to provide assistance, discussion, and Biblical counsel as well as resources to challenge, inspire, support, and equip leaders in all areas of life and business.


THERE ARE 2 WAYS THAT YOU CAN APPLY TO PARTICIPATE IN A BUSINESS GROUP: GROUP MEMBER OR AS A FACILITATOR/ASSISTANT FACILITATOR.

If you are interested in being a group member, click here to go to our Life Fellowship Small Groups page, view the groups available and sign up for the group of your choice.

If you are interested in being a group facilitator or assistant facilitator, please email us at businessleaders@lifefellowship.tv and let us know of your interest. From there we will begin the application process.


Group Meeting Times and Locations:

The business groups coincide with the three overarching church small group semesters. The spring semester typically begins in February and ends in May. The summer semester typically begins in June and ends Mid July. The fall semester typically begins in September and ends December. The groups meet for two hours twice a month.
