Green: Well, I guess it might be Proverbs 3, verse 5 and 6 -- it says, "Trust in Lord with all thine heart, lean not unto thine own understanding, in all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy path. Jerry: So are you a low-debt company, a no-debt company? What's your financial management structure? Green: We have no long-term debt. We buy hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of Christmas and Fall merchandise in the summer months, and we'll have a short-term line of credit that buys that, and it's zeroed out in December. But we think that's part of trying to follow after where God would have us to be.
Jerry: That's interesting. Jerry: Not a debt investor. Jerry: He has a kind of a venture capital model, doesn't He, rather than a debt model? Well, sometimes in debt, we're kind of telling God He's not going fast enough. And we had done that. And it seems like a lot of writers think of the idea of a business with a Christian culture as weird or strange. And there's almost a sarcastic attitude that financial writers seem to have about Hobby Lobby, Chick-fil-A, other businesses that pursue a Christian culture.
I'm sure you've run into that. How do you deal with that, and where do you think it comes from? So for us it's fairly simple, that God's word is God's word, and we believe it, and we believe it's the best way without any questions. We have zero questions about that. And so it is amazing that some ask, can you be a Christian and a businessman at the same time? And they say, I really want in on that; that makes sense to me.
How do they do it? How do you build a Christian culture into a corporate environment from the beginning? And let me add on top, if you didn't start that way, how would you advise somebody to sort of re-found their corporate culture that way? As we are serious about wanting to do things God's way, then I think He will start dealing with us.
So I think God will definitely lead and guide them in areas that they're falling short. That's James. So we wanted to do that, and God has guided us, and we just sense God's guiding in so many areas. And we're still on that path; we haven't reached the end zone yet, but we're still trying to do things more in His keeping. And we have to start by believing this is His word and I'm going to stand on it. The problem is, the insight is typically rooted in worldly thinking - far away from the heart of God. Every session is prayerfully crafted to align you and your business to God's purpose for business.
You'll be challenged to look at your company, your strategy, your customer and your competition in ways you never have before - and make improvements that create breakthrough results. What is the purpose of business? Is it God-ordained - and if so, how do we approach each day of work? How does that shape our aspirations, decisions, attitudes and results?
In this learning path, you'll hear from business leaders who have stumbled, failed and succeeded in the journey of discovery. You'll also have an opportunity to crystalize your vision and purpose for being in business. Every day you are faced with opportunities, decisions, and challenges. Some decisions are easy to make.

From casual mid-month meetups over coffee, to rich times of 1-on-1, CAB culture expands past the monthly meeting to deliver value all month long. For CABs to achieve maximum impact, there has to be a rich exchange between the members.
While scheduling conflicts may arise, members are expected to prioritize CBF meetings and events. Our members know that satisfaction comes from giving as well as receiving.
