America’s leading Christian CEO forum.

Regardless of how long you’ve been a business leader, you probably still have those days when you are keenly aware of the gaps in your knowledge and experience. The challenge for many of us is that we don’t set aside time to work “on” our business rather than “in” it. We might read books, attend industry seminars or even engage consultants, but we don’t regularly schedule time to focus on big-picture issues. The C12 Group is a unique forum for Christian CEOs and business owners who are intentional about business, ministry and personal growth.

Tim Parker

Chair

Tim comes to  the role of C12 Chair having been both a C-suite executive with small to midsized companies and a business owner.  His prior CEO/COO/CFO roles give him experience in strategic planning, vision/alignment, financial management, marketing, labor management, operational management, and mentoring.  Tim has provided leadership to several turnarounds of small and medium-sized hospitals of 260 to 1000 employees and revenues ranging from $50 million to $1.2 Billion.  Tim’s leadership approach always aimed at mentoring and preparing his direct reports on these leadership teams such that they might grow into future CEOs and CFOs.

Tim has a BS in Accounting from WVU Tech and an MBA from the University of Miami (FL).  He has known the Lord since his mid-teens.  Tim has served as a Sunday school youth teacher, participates in several men’s groups, and has been blessed by taking short-term mission trips to Nicaragua and Angola Prison in Louisiana.

Tim and his wife Jennifer have four adult children, three of whom are married, and they enjoy golf, swimming, and other outdoor activities.  Tim is excited to be called by the Lord to help Christian CEOs “Build GREAT Businesses for a GREATER Purpose” in order to glorify God, “Who desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of truth.” (1Timothy 2:4)
