My goals and motivations have changed. Instead of business, I am just pursuing the common good.

Our Mission

Founded in 1994, Global Commerce Network is a non-government organization (NGO) with 501(c)3 status in the United States, headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Our mission statement is:

GCN seeks to help business leaders and professionals transform their business cultures utilizing scriptural truths so that businesses can: help workers flourish; be a source of hope and purpose within their communities; and improve the lives of underserved populations.

Businesses are perfectly positioned to impact society. However, many business leaders overlook their potential to use their companies to improve the world. GCN helps business leaders and professionals to reshape the cultures of their companies . . . so that businesses can better serve their communities (external influence) and improve the lives of their workers (internal influence). In this way, business leaders can integrate daily work with the ultimate purpose of loving God and neighbor. 

Half of the pleasure of business derives from a sense that the system of which it is a part is highly beneficial to the human race . . . The other half is personal—finding purpose and meaning in what one does.
