About CBN

The mission of Christian Business Networking is to connect Christian business owners and professionals, equip them to be effective and efficient in their business networking while encouraging them to be Christ’s light in their industry. Our heart is to help Christian professionals grow their businesses, to provide a place for support and encouragement and to financially impact the community by encouraging tithing by our members through their business growth. Our passion is helping businesses connect and grow as a result of developing mutually beneficial business relationships.


Christian Business Networking Chapters consist of one professional per industry. Weekly meetings have a dual focus. First, is to gain an understanding of the products or services provided by each member. Second, is to help build each other’s businesses by passing referrals to other members which, in turn, builds your business from the leads received.


In 2003, God laid it on the heart of Maia Arneson to create a way for Christian business owners to connect, fellowship and pass business leads. Barry Hultgren with Red Letter Publishing, nationwide Publisher of Christian Business Directories (www.RedLetter.com), provided insight and support for the venture to come to fruition.

In November of that year, four chapters kicked off in the Phoenix area with an average of 5-7 members each. Since that time, CBN has flourished with 250+ members and is expanding throughout the United States.


Christian Business Networking believes the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God. We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons- Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in the virgin birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, His sinless life, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection and His ascension to the right hand of God the Father. We believe that our salvation is by grace through faith in His shed blood which is evident through our works.
