In 2005 a good friend of ours asked us
to meet with two Christian businessmen interested in opening a
C28 Franchise. After much prayer and counsel we met with them.
Bill White and Lou Jug shared their vision of bringing the
ministry of C28 Franchise stores to Northern California. They
shared their desire to serve the Lord through business and
explained how they wanted to reach millions with the grace,
truth and love of Jesus.
Over the next 6 months they kept in
contact with us, until one day Bill called us to ask if we
could meet with 2 other Christian businessmen that they knew.
They asked us what it would take to bring the C28 ministry to
Northern California. We told them it would run about a million
dollars to open 3 new C28 stores. Then, as God is God, they
looked at us and said, "consider it done." We were blown away,
Bill and Lou prayed, looked for capital and God answered their
prayers! Only God makes things happen like that!
It's one year later, and the ministry
of C28 is influencing the lives of millions in Northern
California. Over 600 people have come to Christ through God's
Holy Spirit and their work in Northern California. Bill has
now opened 3 C28 Franchise stores, and has plans for 3 more
C28 stores within the next 2 years! Praise God!
With all this said, C28 is not
exactly for everyone that happens to love the Lord. You also
need the required capital and a gifting in business to
succeed. C28 is both a "Front Line" ministry and a business,
requiring a great amount of prayer, dedication and hard work.
If you sense God leading you to go further after you pray and
seek Godly counsel, then we want to hear from you!
