The mission of The Get Together is to engage business people in serving Christ-centered ministries using the gifts that God has equipped them with to run their businesses. These gifts include their particular professional expertise, network of contacts and entrepreneurial and life experience.
We accomplish our mission by holding monthly luncheons where business people have the opportunity to build relationships with representatives from local, Christ-centered ministries. A portion of every Get Together meeting is spent presenting the needs of these ministries and giving business people the opportunity to come up with creative solutions to meet them. Needs are met in a number of ways by the business people – sharing expertise, making contacts on behalf of a ministry and mobilizing volunteers, to name a few.
We do not fundraise for ministries. Our focus is on getting people involved. Since our inception in July 2003, The Get Together has met 8,302 ministry needs valued at over $5 million and Get Together members have served over 15,000 hours volunteering and offering pro bono professional services.
