At a county–wide LSBC meeting in January 2005, Dr. Keith Starcher, the founder of Leaders Serving Beaver County, emphasized the value of participating in LSBC as follows:
“How can LSBC add value to you? What should you expect to gain from attending an LSBC meeting?
First, we will share business knowledge that will help each of us become excellent in whatever we do in the marketplace. We’ll glean the best from the world of applied theory, distill best practices down to their essence and present the information in an engaging way.
Second, we will share this business knowledge from both a marketplace and a biblical perspective. Although the Bible is not a business book, most of us would agree, that good business practices are built on foundational biblical principals. What we have learned from the world regarding business excellence will be filtered through a biblical lens and honed on the Word of God.
Third, LSBC will provide each of us with an opportunity to demonstrate real servant leadership in Beaver County as the Lord leads us to develop, coordinate, and complete practical and meaningful county-wide project. Hence, the LSBC tagline, “Learning to do well to do good.”
Of course there may be other benefits of participating in LSBC—networking, praying together in small groups, bearing one another’s burdens, and rejoicing in one another’s triumphs—but the three I just mentioned are the value-added features of LSBC.”
