History and Mission

The Christian Professional Network was formed and incorporated in Baltimore, Maryland in February, 1994, as a service to Christian businesses, professionals, and ministries. The goal of its four Founding Members was to provide a framework for practical help for businesses and ministries, by integrating sound business principles with Christian faith and Biblical values. CPN works across denominational lines, to seek a unified testimony to Jesus Christ in the business community.

CPN has sponsored over fifty business conferences and seminars, offering programs on the necessary business tools required in today’s economy, providing the most current information on the financial, technical, and legal trends which impact the Christian business community. We also serve ministries and churches by addressing current issues in “the business of ministry.” We look forward to continued growth and ministry in future years, as we wait for the return of the LORD.
