“The Christian Chamber is the best way to get plugged-in to the Christian business community. As a former full-time Pastor, I love being connected to fellow Christian business leaders, who share my zeal for strong Christianity with strong business practices. My Wealth Management Team has deeply benefited from having an entire suite of Christian businesses to refer to our clients. Psalms 127: 1,2” – Aaron W. Kassler, CRPC
“We have been Blessed with quality relationships established through the Chamber. We have seen the unity of the Body of Christ come together to further the Kingdom of God. We have observed the transformation of people’s lives and business through the Chamber.” – Glenn A Repple
