Legacy Leadership Forums is a team of business owners and COOs who meet together monthly for mutual encouragement and accountability.

OUR CORE VALUES

As a member of Legacy Leadership Forums, we understand it is a joy and privilege to steward a business on God’s behalf. It is also our responsibility to represent Him well in everything we do. To that end, Legacy Leadership Forums has established our core values, reminding us what we stand for, who we  represent, and to treat each other with respect and dignity.

RELATIONSHIPS

We value the relationship we have with God and those in our circles.

We strive to be authentic.

We submit to being accountable.

We commit to sharpening each other in love.

BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES

By God’s grace we will study and learn Biblical Principles and we commit to following them in every area of our lives.

GROW, LEARN, DEVELOP

We expect to Grow, Learn, and Develop in spirit and in skill. We will submit to Christ, Scripture, and each other to facilitate our growth as one of God’s leaders.

KINGDOM IMPACT

We work to have a Kingdom Impact in our families, businesses, and communities.

COMMITMENT

We will achieve the highest level of Commitment to God and to those around us.

We expect to be relied upon and we will remain dependable and steadfast.

We Believe

We believe in the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate.

We believe Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man. We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.

We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word, and deed.

We believe in “That blessed Hope”, the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We believe that all who receives by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God. Further, we believe in the eternal security of the believer.

What kind of Legacy are you leaving?

For your Family? For your Business? For your Community?

“As the owner of a business, I knew I needed to surround myself with like-minded fellow business owners to share my challenges in a confidential environment. I stepped out and joined a Forum. As expected, Legacy has provided a sounding board for my business issues on a personal level. More profoundly, it has given me a context for understanding my own issues in the context of similar positioned Christian business people. In other words, there are others who share my challenges! I have found so much value in LLF. Don’t stay isolated! Step out and join a Forum!”

Steve Slater, Masterlink Concrete Pumping, Burns Harbor, IN

“I have gotten myself into trouble thinking my employees understand what sort of responsibilities and risks a business owner carries. I found out the hard way that I needed someone else to run my questions by, someone with similar or more experience in whatever issue I am dealing with. Having other owners or leaders to talk to and test ideas and thoughts with, has been very helpful.  No matter if it is business, family, or spiritual ideas and thoughts, having like-minded and experienced group members have been a help and a relief.”

Ken Adair, Adair Enterprises, South Holland, IL

“The Forum for me provides me an opportunity to meet monthly with other like minded businessmen who share common goals as it relates to their relationships at home and in the marketplace. Sharing ideas and problems with these guys helps me be a better husband, father, and employer.”

Greg Bach, Bach Benefit Group, Hoffman Estates, IL

“My participation in Legacy Leadership Forums has helped me to view my business in a different light…It is not just a mechanism to earn a living for my family, but rather a means to further the Lord’s kingdom thru the witness it makes to the world because of the way we treat our employees and customers; as well as the way we use the revenue it generates to fund the Lord’s work here on earth. Legacy Leadership Forums have also given me an avenue for seeking Godly advice regarding business issues from my fellow Forum members that my “non-businessmen” friends simply would not understand.”

Gary Dykstra, D & G Electric, Lynwood, IL

Business

Family

Community

A business owner/partner and/or the decision maker of a particular location of business.

LLF is a RESOURCE that is attractive to Christian business leaders and considered an asset to the Christian Business community because it communicates:

1. The value of being part of something larger than ourselves.

2. The bottom line impact of being part of LLF in our family, business, and       community.

3. The impact of controlling debt.

4. What it means to be an excellent Godly leader.

5. What it means to others when we lead excellently.

6. Community service opportunities.

One five hour meeting per month, including a meal and relevant Bible study.

The meeting can vary from business to business within your FORUM. In some cases the meeting may be held in the same location each month.

This varies from FORUM to FORUM.  The starting time and place is decided by the members to best fit their schedule and usually fills a half day.

There is no fixed fee. We are a not for profit 501(c)3. The suggested donation amount is $225.00 per month; although many members give substantially more.

Usually no more than eight members.

You will need to commit to ten of the twelve meetings per year. There is also a confidentiality commitment that must be signed.

Provers 11:14 is very clear. “For lack of guidance a nation (business) fails, but many advisers make victory sure.”

Yes! By all means! You come as a guest to observe and learn, but you cannot participate in the discussion. (Subject to clearance from the FORUM)

Legacy Leadership Forums Events

2019 September Prayer Events

Presented by Legacy Leadership Forums

Join us to discover your place in the Kingdom at Work movement and meet other marketplace leaders with similar vision. You’ll hear stories from veteran leaders as you are practically empowered to experience the reality of the Kingdom at work in your organization. Get ready to be inspired, equipped, and ignited to advance God’s Kingdom through your influence in the marketplace!

Legacy Leadership Forums and Kingdom at Work partnered together and held 2 one-day Gathering events. The events were held in Highland, IN and Oakbrook, IL with beautiful venues and delicious food.

Roughly 80 business leaders joined us to hear Rick and Casey from Kingdom at Work speak about what it means to lead a business from God’s perspective. We walked away with new ideas and understanding about work, worship, and service.

If you attended, thank you for joining us. We hope you were inspired to lead differently–to lead with love for your people and love for the Lord. We are thankful for all of you and for a chance to serve.
