All the goals we set from a business standpoint are designed to help fulfill PacMoore’s kingdom purpose: “To build spiritually rich, profitable companies to grow the kingdom of God.” In Exodus 33:15 Moses says to the Lord, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.” That verse is our prayer for everything we are doing wherever God leads us. We look to the Lord and recognize Him as the true giver of all things. At the same time we recognize our responsibility to work as hard as we can using the talents and wisdom He has given us. That includes establishing goals that will help create clear direction for our people; motivate us to reach new levels of achievement; and drive us to create jobs and impact the lives of people economically, emotionally and spiritually. In Proverbs 29 we read “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” The goals of a company give its people clear vision.
