About the Center for Christianity in Business

Christian Values, World-class Leadership

The Center for Christianity in Business (CCB) is an educational and community outreach effort for the School of Business at Houston Baptist University. We’re in the business of empowering future and current leaders in the corporate world!

The CCB was created as a valuable resource in applying the practical application of Biblical values and principles to business affairs. It’s based on the vision that ALL Christian business leaders and professionals can serve as ministers of God's Church so that they can become "the light of the world" (Matt. 5:14-16).

To accomplish these objectives, the CCB has set out to bring students, educators, policymakers, business executives, and professional practitioners together in a series of forums. Topics include:

  • Research Initiatives
  • High Impact Events
  • Mentoring Exercises
  • Communication Channels
  • Consultative Activities
  • Educational Programs

By delving into these topics, we hope to precipitate a renewed awareness that business is a divine ordinance that can bring about purpose, fulfillment the sharing of great ideas.
 

Our Purpose, Vision, and Strategy

The Vision

The CCB is working hard to become a recognized leader in the integration of Christian faith and business within the local, regional, national, and global business spheres.

Our Strategies

The objectives of the CCB are delivered through integrated efforts in research, communication, and education. Research provides the intellectual platform for continued and productive dialogue among academics and business practitioners.
