Being a Christian company means so much more than putting a Bible verse on your business card or incorporating a cross into your logo. As you think and pray through the way you communicate work as worship, serve your community, and care for your employees, know that the Lord has entrusted you with your business. Seek to glorify Him as you work and lead.
