The Woodstock Business Conference, a national movement of spiritual and social renewal for the business community, is forming a chapter in the Rochester area in September.
The conference helps business and professional executives integrate their spiritual and business lives more effectively. Its goals include developing a corporate culture consistent with Christian values and helping business leaders to become a beneficial influence on society.
Rolf Miller, facilitator for the new chapter, is a consultant for small to mid-sized companies in the Rochester area. In 2003, he founded a group called Breakfast Conversations in Ethics, which is now affiliated with Pittsford’s St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry and the Rochester Business Alliance. Miller has chosen two cofacilitators for Rochester’s WBC chapter from St. Charles Borromeo Parish in Greece.
The first meeting will be on Sept. 9 from 6-7 p.m. at St. Bernard’s, 120 French Road, Pittsford. Subsequent meetings will also be held there on the first Thursday of the month. Meetings will include opening prayer, discussion of a designated topic, study of Scripture relating to the topic, reflection and evaluation of the meeting, and closing prayer.
Miller encourages individuals of any faith to attend.
“Diversity will make this group more interesting,” he said.
