Network With Purpose November 28th
There's A Better Way To DO Lunch!
Let's DO Lunch! Join Houston business professionals and The Get Together Partner Ministry leaders on November 28th over lunch to Network with Purpose! You'll have an opportunity to collaboratively work together to meet their most pressing needs. Use your business skills, expertise and network to make a difference! We don't raise $$ at our events...we only want your knowledge, insight and connections. Come see what it's all about!
Our program will highlight both ministry and business. You'll hear from Jenny Rice Cotton, President of Gracewood, Rick Hill, Executive Director of The Mission of Yahweh, and Tommy Thompson, President/CEO of Open Door Mission in a panel discussion moderated by Roger Wernette.
Catherine Brown, with ExtraBold Sales, will share her experiences connecting her business to The Get Together.

Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church - The Chapel
8300 Katy Fwy, Houston, TX 77024
Arrive at 11:15 am for early networking opportunities and bring your business cards! We host over 100 business professionals from across the city who want to use their business expertise, network and resources to assist Christ-centered local ministries. There's a place for you!
November's Lunch Sponsor:
What to expect:
- Each table will be hosted by a Get Together Ambassador who will facilitate the networking time during the meal.
- Each table will include one of ten ministry representatives.
- Business people are encouraged to choose a ministry table to join for lunch and networking.
- The program will consist of a panel of ministry leaders and business professionals who will be interviewed by a moderator. Each meeting has a theme, such as homelessness, education, restorative justice, etc.
- Each ministry submits 3-5 needs each month. These needs are included in a packet of information at the table and on our website.
The Get Together Networking Luncheons are not monetary fundraisers. Attendees are encouraged to reach out to their network to help ministries identify resources that will help them further their cause. These needs may include material items (in-kind) like office furniture, cleaning supplies, etc. as well as professional expertise like creating a strategic plan for communication or project management. We want to know what you know about business, strategy, networking and creative problem-solving.
Expect to think about your network of influence and how you can help ministries tackle some of their greatest challenges. Join like-minded business people to network and do good things together!
The Get Together selects Nonprofit Partners on an annual basis through application only (March 1 - May 15). Nonprofits that are not official partners are welcome to attend events, but are asked to support The Get Together's Nonprofit Partners and not solicit support for their own organization at the events. In order to apply for partnership, interested nonprofits must attend a Discovery Meeting in February, prior to application. Check www.thegettogether.org for more information.

Reminder: Network with Purpose Lunch is tomorrow November 27, 2018
We're looking forward to seeing you tomorrow for our final Network with Purpose Lunch of the year. We have an incredible panel of speakers and 40 needs from our Partner Ministries. Our goal is to meet 100% of their needs through our network, resources and expertise. See below for the list of needs.
If you have anything on this list, please feel free to bring it with you. We just ask that large items remain in your car until after the meeting as Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church does not have a place for us to drop-off or store items. So, if you bring an item, let the ministry leader know that you have it and they'll meet you at your car after the meeting to pick it up. The exception is Christmas toys. We're collecting new, unwrapped toys for The FORGE for Families and Open Door Mission. These two ministries will be prepared to receive your toys in the chapel near their assigned table.
As a reminder, try to arrive at 11:15 am for early networking opportunities and to meet our Partner Ministries. Each table will be hosted by a Partner Ministry leader and a Get Together Ambassador. You choose your table and your seat. Upon arrival, please check-in at the registration desk then enjoy BBQ catered by Chef Dan Nix with Open Door Mission.
See you tomorrow!
