CBMC Invites You to a Luncheon with Guest Speaker and Professional Leadership Trainer Larry Hillman

By: Curtis Ophoven 0 Comments   2/21/2011

The Christian Business Men’s Committee (CBMC) of St. Cloud are best known for hosting the annual majors prayer breakfast at the St. Cloud Civic Center, in which Dave from Famous Dave’s Restaurants was the keynote speaker this year.

Besides the mayor’s prayer breakfast, CBMC organizes several small group bible studies throughout St. Cloud and they host several Luncheons’ throughout the year with guest speakers from local business leaders.

The Luncheon's are a great place to network with fellow Christian business leaders who share the higher call to serve Jesus Christ above their careers. The Luncheon is also a great opportunity to share the testimony of Jesus Christ with fellow colleges.

As far as I can remember, the message of salvation is given and the opportunity to become born again as Jesus said we all must do, is always given.  So this is a chance to bring your business colleges who may never have heard the clear message of Jesus Christ.

The Luncheon is on Tuesday, March 1st, at 12:00 (noon) – 1:00pm, at the Eagle’s Club in St. Cloud and the cost is $10.00 to pay for the meal.

The Guest speaker, Larry Hillman, is an International speaker, trainer, coach and author.  Hear this compelling story of how his life traveled from extreme highs, to extreme lows.  From active pastor’s son, to wild child, to alcoholic, you’ll want to follow the transitional story of how you too can change a life from one of hate and anger, into one of love and valuing others.  Here is Larry's LinkedIn page.

Talking with Larry, he said; “My entire message is about relationships, relationships with people and relationship with the Lord”.  Larry has learned that relationships are the most important strategy, because you cannot be the best without highly motivated people and the number one method for motivating people is to show them that you value them.

Larry has also just completed his first book, “The Baggage Handler“, which is a story about a CEO who struggles with overreacting to negative things in his business, until one day when he meets a baggage handler at the airport that changes his life.  "The Baggage Handler" will be available at the end of March.  

If you plan on attending the CBMC Luncheon and hear Larry speak an RSVP is not necessary, however it helps with the food count – 320-230-7500.

Business for the Glory of God

When students ask, “How can I serve God with my life?” they don’t often hear the answer, “Go into business”. But that is exactly what this book says. Grudem says, “human desires to increase the production of goods and services are not in themselves greedy or materialistic or evil. Rather, such desires to be productive represent God-given desires to dominion over the earth as He created us to do.” Grudem also explains that significant temptations accompany all productions of goods and services, which we need to resist. This is not a ‘Health and Wealth’ gospel, but a biblical looks at the goodness of business.

What’s So Great About Christianity

This book is a response to the culture and media that continues to lie about Christianity. This is a passionate and intellectual presentation of the strengths and historical truths of Christianity. No other religion has brought the world greater rewards than Christianity, because no other religion contains a greater love given to the world by its creator. Without the unquestionable result Christianity, the world would not have been able to sustain itself and would have already been overtaken by death. We live in a time when atheism is attacking Christianity. This book reminds us that Christianity sustains the world.

Mind Siege: The Battle for Truth in the New Millennium

What is the root of this evil future scenario? "Secular Humanism," according to the authors. Unfortunately, the mainline churches have eaten, swallowed and disgusted tons of humanistic dogma: evolution, socialism, Marxism, etc. It's got to stop. This books shows how we are losing our faith in the time it will be needed most.

Don’t Waste Your Life

Most people spend their lives on trivial diversions, seeking to gain comfort and pleasure for themselves. But Jesus said, "Whoever loses his life for my sake will save it." If the path to God-exalting joy and purpose is to "lose" your life rather than to waste it, then what are you waiting for? Some people may be offended by some things that he says - that simply going to work and raising your kids aren't all that God has called you to. There's a greater calling to consider. In conclusion, Piper makes his appeal to the reader "in the name of Jesus to wake up, and enlarge your heart, and stretch your mind, and spread your wings." For when all is said and done, what really matters is that those who are lost are lost no more.
