C3 Connections

23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. - Colossians 3:23-24 (ESV)

Read Colossians 3 and you will discover about the "new" life we are to have in Christ.  The words used by Paul clarify the roles and responsibilities of believers in Christ.  To take it even further, the modern church needs to connect with its community and corporations.
C3 Connections connect: Church, Community and Corporations.  The Church is the body of believers in a local region.  They are called to live out their faith in the midst of the community.  Community, as far as we are concerned here, includes local schools, elected officials, volunteer centers, and even college and university campuses.  Corporations are separate in the C3 concept due to their nature and structure.  You can engage local corporations small business from to major corporations like Fortune 500 and other industry leaders headquartered or operating in your area by various means.  The point of C3 Connections is to establish and maintain connectivity between the Church, Community and Corporations.

You may be a pastor or ministry leader, even a community activist or school teacher, but you want to get connected to others in your area.  Organize with other like-minded people and some people who may not usually work with you and your comrades.  Set up a meeting and invite others from within the community to come out and share their interest in getting involved.  Once you have your interest meeting, you can determine who is on board and what is the level of activity that would seem feasible for your initial efforts. 

Don't become alarmed if some doesn't jump on board until you get going.  Some people don't make a move until they see movement.
