Introduction to Trusted Advisors

The CBMC Trusted Advisor Forum is a peer advisory group for senior business leaders who desire to lead their business according to Biblical principles and become part of a community with other like-minded leaders in their geographic area.

These groups provide a confidential peer-to-peer environment where faith and leadership intersect. It is a whole-life leadership approach, encompassing the multiple roles and responsibilities leaders maintain with their businesses, families and greater community.

Helping business leaders become the leader God designed them to be.

Each group is led by a trained CBMC Leadership Coach with a seasoned business background and solid spiritual maturity. Members enjoy an environment of confidentiality, trust, friendship and long-term accountability... like having their own personal board of advisors. The objective is to help each man build a business of excellence while representing Christ in every sphere of influence.

We understand that it can be lonely at the top, which is why these forums have been so important to leaders since CBMC started them in 1986. In the words of the wisest leader in history (King Solomon), “​Two are better than one ... for if one falls down, the other can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up.​”

Member Advantages

Drawing on the wisdom, giftedness, and experience of the peers in your group.

Godly counsel is a major theme of the book of Proverbs, because it is one of the best ways to gain wisdom. Many bible verses speak to this, such as Proverbs 10, verse 17: “He is on the path of life who heeds instruction, but he who ignores reproof goes astray.” When a problem or question arises in your company, experienced business leaders in your peer advisory group can recount how they may have reacted to a similar problem and how they applied best of business principles coupled with Christian wisdom. By drawing on the wisdom and experience of other leaders with various gifts, you can honor the Lord with your business.

Receiving and giving understanding, empathy, and encouragement when facing both difficulties and opportunities.

In CBMC Leadership Institute offerings, leaders encourage each other in wisdom from the Bible, listening and praying through the hard times. “Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, but a good word makes it glad” (Proverbs 12:25).

Gaining the courage to follow through on tough decisions and issues as they arise.

Since leaders will ultimately be held accountable to God for every action and thought, it would be wise to ask for accountability from fellow Christians now (Romans 14:12, Matthew 12:36). Natural leaders are disciplined people. With healthy accountability, the leaders in your peer group can take up the weapons with “divine power to destroy strongholds” and fight your part of the spiritual battle in this world (2 Corinthians 10:4).

Experiencing the power and ministry of prayer both as a group and with individual members.

Just as Jesus prayed over all things, we pray over every detail of our lives. We understand that we are not our own person. We are stewards of our lives, our families, and our companies. Through prayer, we submit to God and seek His direction.

Gaining the confidence in one another that comes with honesty and transparency in a confidential environment.

You need people with whom you can discuss sensitive issues from your personal life and your business. The trustworthy peers in your peer advisory group are just such people, peers who will keep your secrets and pray for God’s richest blessing for you.
