Serving Christian Leaders

2017 Chicago Work as Worship Conference


Christians should already conduct themselves in a way that proclaims the gospel at work. But what if you're the one in charge? In this 24-minute session, Brian Mosley, president of RightNow Media, interviews Mike Sharrow, Dave Holly, and Greg Leith about being Christian CEOs who serve other Christian business leaders.

Mike Sharrow is the President and CEO of C12 Group, the nation’s largest network of Christian CEOs, business owners, and executives.
Dave is the CEO of Truth At Work, a not-for-profit marketplace ministry that specializes in helping Christian business owners and leaders build strong organizations and integrate their faith into the marketplace.
Greg Leith is the CEO of Convene, an organization focused on connecting, equipping, and inspiring Christian CEOs and business owners to grow exceptional business and become higher-impact leaders to honor God.



Each of the panelists are CEOs of companies that connect Christians CEOs with each other. They spoke first about the biggest issues they see in Christian CEOs today, which included fear, isolation, and pride. 

All three panelists agreed that Christian business leaders are isolated. Do you feel isolated as a Christian in your line of work? How so?

Being a Christian leader in the workplace can be confusing and lonely. Consider looking into the groups that Dave, Mike, and Greg represent. Reach out to other business leaders in your church and, if possible, set a time to meet. Talk about the struggles and joys of leading in business and encourage each other to be witnesses for Christ.
