JACKSON, Tenn. – Jan. 22, 2001– "Business by the Book," a one-day seminar for business executives offered by Christian Financial Concepts, will be held Friday, Feb. 16 at Union University in the Barefoot Student Union Building in Harvey Hall from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Based on international Christian author Larry Burkett's first book, the seminar will cover a variety of topics including the purpose of business, employee relationships, integrity and ethics, and application of biblical principles towards business. Burkett is also founder and CEO of Christian Financial Concepts (CFC), a non-profit national organization that seeks to promote the use of biblical principles in business application. This is the second seminar in two years that CFC will give in the West Tennessee area.
"Larry Burkett is recognized internationally as one of the foremost authorities on the use of biblical principles in business and finances," said Kenny Holt, associate professor of economics and management and the director of Union's Center for Business and Economic Development. "This seminar is an offshoot of that work and so it was quite an honor to be the very first ones to host it here in West Tennessee and to continue offering this important program."
Leading the seminar will be international teacher and businessman Don DeLozier from Gainesville, Ga. With 30 years of experience as senior vice president of Georgia Federal Bank, DeLozier has taught the seminar in more than 75 cities in 5 countries.
"Any business person who is attempting to apply his or her Christian walk to the business profession will want to make plans to attend," Holt added.
The seminar will include breaks and lunch. Registration fees for the event are $99 per individual and $149 for married couples. Seating is limited. For more information and to register, contact Christian Financial Concepts at (800) 340-5066.
