America’s leading Christian CEO forum, building GREAT businesses for a GREATER purpose.

Regardless of how long you’ve been a business leader, you probably still have those days when you are keenly aware of the gaps in your knowledge and experience. The challenge for many of us is that we don’t set aside time to work “on” our business rather than “in” it. We might read books, attend industry seminars or even engage consultants, but we don’t regularly schedule time to focus on big-picture issues. The C12 Group is a unique forum for Christian CEOs and business owners who are intentional about business, ministry and personal growth.

Curt Kemp

Chair

Curt gained extensive experience in leadership, team-building, and leadership development during his 34 years in the Navy as a Surface Warfare Officer, prior to retiring as a Rear Admiral.  He was chief executive of several organizations during the latter half of his Navy career and has lived in many parts of the country, as well as overseas.

After his military career, Curt served as Chief Operating Officer for Prison Fellowship, the largest prison ministry in the United States.  Having seen the amazing transformations that Jesus has worked in prisoners’ lives, Curt now looks forward as a C12 Chair to see how God will equip Christian business leaders in Northern Virginia to reach their full potential in the marketplace.

Curt earned his B.S. in Management at the Naval Academy, his M.S. in National Security Affairs at the Naval Postgraduate School, and has done coursework toward a doctorate in Higher Education Leadership.  Curt has been married to his wife, Ann since 1974.  They have a son and a daughter, Ian and Casey, who both are married.  Both are part of Navy families and have provided their parents with the joy of three grandchildren.  Curt and Ann live in Leesburg, attend Cornerstone Chapel, and lead a church small group.  They enjoy numerous activities together, especially jogging, golf, and gardening.
