In 1980, Skip Carney rented some space and started a business… a recording studio/advertising agency. He has been taking care of brands ever since. “Every day is a new day at Carney & Company,” he says. “Each day brings new challenges and new opportunities. We get to work with some really great, smart folks who are working to improve the lives of the people they serve.”

We live to serve is the company philosophy, and Skip believes that starts within the company and extends to the community and to clients. “Our job is to make our clients’ jobs easier, to solve their marketing problems and to help them communicate more effectively. All the while, we work hard to make our community better and stronger.”

Skip likes to quote Peter Drucker, who said, “Business has only two functions – marketing and innovation,” and Jesus, who said, “You are the light of the world,” and Billy Graham, who said, “I believe one of the next great moves of God is going to be through the believers in the workplace.”

Carney says, “I see every reason in the world why businesses should adopt Christian principles and why churches should adopt business principles. Churches must innovate and market or they will become irrelevant. Businesses must minister to their employees and customers, using Christian principles, particularly the Golden Rule, as guideposts.”

Three hundred and forty seven miles from home and trying to decide what to do next, he turns in to a small town where he meets a pastor and a community that change his perspective on church success. There he learns the principles that can make any church The Greatest Church in the World. Learn More


What Readers Are Saying

I also appreciate the subtle message that a healthy church has followers of Jesus that have shifted from being “consumers” to servants, actively serving in their community. A must read for anyone interested in transforming their church.

Robert Ferguson

This little book provides inspiration for any congregation laying plans for a new year of ministry and spiritual renewal. Some will find in it affirmation for what they are already doing; others may find it a game changer.

Ann Sherwin

Using a fascinating story line Skip Carney reaches into the heart of our church experience and paints a beautiful picture. A picture which reveals a true church in that everyone is engaged and excited to be a member. Everyone shares an enthusiasm and love for their church that is so compelling. This church is truly a lamp on a hill.

Robert Beaman

Skip takes a basic but pointed approach to what is plaguing the modern church. A litany of programs and groups define what makes a church these days. This book cuts through all that and dives into exactly what makes a church look like a reflection of Jesus in this world. A must read for anyone looking to help define the Christian walk and striving with the help of the Spirit to be more Christlike.
