America’s leading Christian CEO forum, building GREAT businesses for a GREATER purpose.

Regardless of how long you’ve been a business leader, you probably still have those days when you are keenly aware of the gaps in your knowledge and experience. The challenge for many of us is that we don’t set aside time to work “on” our business rather than “in” it. We might read books, attend industry seminars or even engage consultants, but we don’t regularly schedule time to focus on big-picture issues. The C12 Group is a unique forum for Christian CEOs and business owners who are intentional about business, ministry and personal growth.

Rick Ferris

Chair

Rick was called to his role as a C12 Chair in Southern New England, in 2009, following his extensive experience in both business and church leadership, for over 20 years. Rick served as President and principal owner of Source Packaging New England and Source Technology Group for 19 years.

Source developed strong relationships while providing specialty packaging design and development to the Pharmaceutical industry.

Rick and his wife Kelly developed a heart for peacemaking and have become trained facilitators through the teachings of Peacemaker Ministries. Those close to Rick have affirmed that it is the combination of his interpersonal gifts, his business management, church leadership and Peacemaking experience that has lead him to be “the first Seal on the beach” for C12 in the New England region.

Rick’s Mission Statement: To use my gifts, resources and abilities to serve and come alongside those that God has chosen to run His businesses in Southern New England.
