'Doing the King’s Business in the Queen City’
The President’s Perspective for March 27th
As I sit in front of my screen trying to pitch our next meeting, I’ve been searching for the ‘hook’ for our upcoming half-day seminar. Nothing seems to be coming… so I’ve decided to just share my heart and start with the end in mind. It was years ago at a Charlotte Christian Chamber Board meeting a question was raised. “Where is Charlotte now?” Then one member described what he was seeing. “I see a gem hidden in the earth. And the gem is being unearthed to fulfill it’s God ordained destiny. This is gem is the identity of the cities - Charlotte and any other city.”
Our history is so unique. The name “uptown” was how the farmers went uphill to Trade and Tryon to trade and sell their produce. Then gold was discovered in the surrounding areas. And then the new-fangled rail system created Charlotte as a major hub to do business with major cities across the nation. Could our past be a picture of our future destiny?
Those of you who know me well, know it’s the norm for me to be excited about our meetings as we’ve had Divine Appointments as demonstrated by the speakers and connections made over the years. But this next seminar will serve to launch us to a new place – “to be doers of the word and not hearers only.”
The vision for our seminar on March 27th is simple: We see a surge of collaboration between Kingdom leaders and organizations in the Charlotte community experiencing greater level of awakening and partnership as we move toward God's vision for our city. Our prayer is you will walk in your identity to fulfill your part in the plan God has for Charlotte. This vision brings to life our tag line – which was Holy Spirit given – ‘Doing the King’s Business in the Queen City’. Does it mean we usher in a Kingdom Culture in our personal workplace?
Our speakers for this day will give us insight into moving from identity to destiny. Doug Spada, author of Monday Morning Atheist, will give practical tools on how to develop a Kingdom Culture in the workplace and how superficial success can be an obstacle to God’s plan. David Yarnes, Vice President of Morningstar Ministries, will share his keys to successfully define the target of hitting Kingdom and Business so we can be effective and successful simultaneously.
Invited panelists are leaders in business and ministry who are passionate about bringing Kingdom Culture into the workplace. We’ve invited Bill Montross (Christian Business Men’s Connection), Nayda Dickson, (Barnabas Group), David Benham (Benham Inc. and author of Whatever the Cost), Stu Epperson (President of Truth Talk Radio and author of The Last Words of Jesus), Matthew Fleming (Omega ProVision), Chaim Goldman (Kingdom Consulting), and our speakers, Doug Spada and David Yarnes.
So now for the ‘hook’.

And …. what if – God would choose to use Charlotte as a model for cities to unearth their buried treasure (identity) to fulfill their unique destiny? He could fulfill HIS purpose in Zephaniah 3:9 “Then I will purify the lips of the peoples, that all of them may call the name of the Lord and serve Him shoulder to shoulder."
For His Good Pleasure,
