Workshop Highlight 2020: Greg King, C12 Group

During his years serving with the Army, Greg King was given some advice from an Army Chaplain in Korea that became words to live by.

“Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33

Greg has since retired from the Army after 26 years, where he flew helicopters and worked in military intelligence, followed by ten years at a high-tech company in the defense industry. Through this, God blessed Greg and his wife with the means to be able to step into ministry full-time and invest themselves in a Kingdom-building vocation.

As the Managing Chair of C12 Group in Virginia’s Blue Ridge region, Greg is on mission to encourage and equip Christian business owners to lead their businesses with timeless biblical principles.

“I have the privilege of walking with leaders, creating great cultures and building thriving businesses.”

Greg helps business owners not only become leaders in their industry and community, but do ministry through their businesses as well.

Greg and Kim, his wife of 35 years, not only work together (Kim handles the office administration), they enjoy spending time walking, exercising, relaxing and traveling together. He says, “We try to travel internationally every other year to experience new places and make memories for when we are old and can no longer travel.” The Amalfi Coast in Italy and the Willamette Valley in Oregon are two of Greg’s favorite places.

Greg and Kim have a daughter who is married and lives in Charleston, SC. Greg explains that, while he was raised as an “Army brat” and his daughter was raised as an “Army brat,” their plan is to break that cycle for their daughter’s family and be an active part of their grandkids’ lives.

Greg is currently reading Moving Mountains – Praying with Passion, Confidence and Authority by John Eldridge. His Sunday School class at church is working through it together, and he says this book on disciplines of prayer has been a timely study, as a friend was recently diagnosed with cancer. A key takeaway for Greg so far deals with the importance of consecrating ourselves before we pray. He quotes Eldridge as he states, “The act of consecration is ‘repairing the wiring,’ the first step before God’s protection and provision can flow. It is the fresh act of dedicating yourself — your home, a relationship, a job, your sexuality, whatever needs God’s grace — deliberately and intentionally to Jesus, bringing it fully into His kingdom and under His rule.”
