“I want to thank you for leading and hosting the Business Insight Series this morning. It is a great opportunity for me to receive some good insight on business topics written by the business leaders of our day. In addition, it is an opportunity for me to minster to my team that I work with and bring them to a Christian event that they may not otherwise attend. The topics are relevant to our lives as businessmen and in a Christian setting, expose some to the gospel that may not have come on their own. I just want to send a quick note of appreciation and let you know that I look forward to participating in future events. Thank you” Mark, VP
