Home Christian Business Chamber
The CBC represents and promotes the area’s Christian business economy. It encourages business and industrial investment. The mission statement for the CBC is “Our Businesses Are a Gift from God; Let’s Work to Give Back to The Kingdom of God”.
Building loyalty to the mission is extremely important, and the constitution of the mission has a whole committee devoted to it. This makes sure that what the Peter and Paul’s Mission put together, stays together.
The workload of planning a social calendar needed to foster fraternal bonds is also fairly shared between all members to ensure nobody suffers burn out from constantly planning events that always seem to get bigger with each event.
The Directory Committee employs Trade Commissioners to encourage the BODY to support their brothers and sisters in business. These Trade Commissioners will run home shows, an internet catalogue and the CBC newsletter to other Christians. The Trade Commissioners will sell home show spots and newsletter ads plus organise other functions and events to promote the region’s Christian economy.
The Christian Business Chamber (CBC) is the headquarters of the local Christian Business Community. It develops strong fraternal bonds between Christian Business people offering support, encouragement, and security to its membership. The membership fosters and nurtures the development of the Christian Phone book and the mission into other cities and towns. The Christian Business Chamber is the foundation that supports Peter & Paul’s Mission.
Other services the CBC offers are:
The Christian Business Chamber [CBC] hosts Rapid Trade Breakfasts or [RTB] for their members. Where business to business contact occurs over a hearty breakfast, where members can exchange contacts as well as new marketing initiatives between members. These RBT’s are an excellent way for a new Christian or a Christian new to town, or a Christian new to business to establish a network of Christian business contacts. The network of RTB’s provides the member with a valuable core group of advisers and supporters for their business.
In addition to the RTB’s the Christian Business Chamber [CBC] hosts a monthly luncheon where all Christian business people come together in a larger group. These lunches are an informative and stimulating experience. Speakers are carefully chosen by the CBC policy committee to inform and educate and encourage the membership base on a range of topics.
The CBC policy committee strives to have a full social calendar of events. Complementing the RTBs, and the monthly lunch is the CBC’s best event hosted.
This is the coveted title that all Tribes in the C.B.C battle to capture; the prize is set by the Leadership Team.
These strategies are designed to foster strong and loyal relations from the Christian business community to the Peter and Paul’s Mission as well as a feeling of belonging to the C.B.C and fraternal bonds to their Christian business Tribe.
The winner of The Best Event Hosted is chosen by the most tickets sold to the event.
Members of the Tribe are responsible for planning the event marketing and selling the event to other members of the C.B.C. This way the C.B.C always has events on, that promote fraternal bonds within its membership.
Building the loyalty to the mission is extremely important, and the constitution of the mission has a whole committee devoted to it. This makes sure that what the Peter and Paul’s Mission puts together stays together.
The work load of planning a social calendar needed to foster fraternal bonds is also fairly shared between all members, and nobody suffers burn-out from constantly planning events that always seem to get bigger with each event.
Once Tickets have been sold to C.B.C members [by the Tribe whose turn it is to host the monthly event] that tribe responsible for hosting then starts selling tickets to their business suppliers and other contacts whom their business has connections with. This is how they have the best chance of winning the trophy, by selling tickets to non C.B.C business people.
The Christian Business Chamber [CBC] represents and promotes the zone’s Christian business economy. The CBC encourages business and industrial investment. An important part of the CBC is its Cabinet.
The Cabinet is made up of ten people selected by the CBC policy committee, who form part of the Leadership Team. Policy Committee members are not allowed to serve in the cabinet.
The Policy Committee will give tasks to the Cabinet such as opening up a CBC in the next zone. The Policy Committee will be responsible for drafting the agenda and any terms of reference that may apply to the task given to the Cabinet.
The Policy Committee will send this Cabinet into solitude, away from all distractions of family and business, as often as necessary until their mission is accomplished. Peter & Paul’s Mission Ltd will pay all of the expenses of the Cabinet while on these weekend work missions.
The Policy Committee, in return for receiving the services of the best possible business minds in the CBC, will make the work missions an enjoyable and attractive experience.
Any member of the CBC can approach their policy committee for a seat in the Cabinet. The Cabinet does not pay a wage and the work is done for the Lord voluntarily. Cabinet duties are an enjoyable break from the grind of everyday life. The solitude trips are a surprise, planned by the policy committee to be enjoyable. Expenses such as airfares, accommodation and meals are all paid for while you are in solitude with your other Cabinet members.
The mission only has one Cabinet; complex business tasks are handed to this cabinet. Where the mission has multiple CBC’s, one for each Zone, there will only ever be one Cabinet. Any member of any CBC can approach their policy committee to serve in the Cabinet. If you are a gifted and skilled entrepreneur or a skilled administrator you may even find your Policy Committee approaching you asking you, to serve in the Cabinet. If Peter& Paul’s Mission Ltd around Australia had fifty zones registered and each of those zones had a CBC who had a membership of around five hundred business people that would total twenty-five thousand business people from which the mission can select just ten members for its Cabinet.
The Cabinet gives Peter & Paul’s Mission Ltd a think tank of ten of the Christian economy’s best minds to solve complex business and legal issues. If you think that you can contribute and serve at a Cabinet level, contact your CBC to register your interest.
The Christian Business Chamber [CBC] hosts regular home shows. These are great events in which to promote your business. The Home Shows are planned and then promoted to Peter & Paul’s Mission’s vast membership base, giving large, loyal customer exposure to your business.
Home Shows are popular with the general public and are always well attended. If you would like to showcase your business to Peter & Pauls Mission’s vast membership base these are ideal investment spots.
