Largest Network of Christian Business Advisory Groups Launches in South Central, PA

HARRISBURG, PA – 23 Mar, 2017 – American’s largest Christian business advisory network, The C12 Group, announces the launch of a C12 Group practice in the Susquehanna Valley region of South Central Pennsylvania with Steve Bateman as the Managing Chair.  C12 Group will provide Christian business owners and executives across the region with business counsel, a trusted peer advisory group, and ministry development.  

“I am very excited to welcome Steve Bateman to the C12 family,” said David Gullotti, C12’s VP of Market Development. “Steve’s decades of business experience, workplace chaplaincy, and vocational ministry will prove to be a tremendous asset to the many Christian executives in South Central Pennsylvania who seek to grow and improve their business and have a richer life in Christ. It is a very exciting time for the local C12 movement.

Bateman brings over 25 years of business experience that includes engineering and operation leadership roles at companies such as TE Connectivity (formerly Tyco), Thomas & Betts, and FCI Electronics. Bateman answered the call to pursue vocational ministry in 2003.  After graduating from seminary, he accepted a leadership role with the largest provider of workplace chaplain services. His experience in workplace chaplaincy allowed him to become a trusted advisor to business owners and CEOs. Nearly 10 years after beginning his service in the workplace mission field, Bateman answered another call to the next level of workplace ministry through C12.

“As a C12 Chair, I am committed to equipping and encouraging business leaders to achieve their desire to glorify God in their work and life,” explained Bateman. “My goal is to expand C12 Groups across the Susquehanna Valley so Christian business executives have a proven resource for guidance, best practices, and coaching to pursue excellence in their business, home life, and relationship with Christ.”

Bateman will host two complimentary events for Christian CEOs and business owners at the Bent Creek Country Club in Lititz, PA.  A luncheon will be held on Wednesday, April 26th from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm followed by a breakfast on Thursday, April 27th from 7:30 am – 9:30 am.  

Those interested in attending one of these events may contact Steve Bateman at (704) 575-7069 or by email at
