You Can’t Put a Price on Peace: A Business Acquisition Strategy
Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) present a topline growth strategy that expands our capacity to serve but requires specific discernment and consideration. Our businesses can grow beyond what is good, healthy, and sustainable—for us, our employees, and our business testimony. If growth comes at the expense of faithfulness to God’s purposes, it is not authored by God. As Christ-centered leaders, we are compelled to make Kingdom-driven decisions while weighing the risks, complexities, and “calling” that exist with this strategy. The leaders at Columbia Forest Products are actively pursuing acquisitions to grow and diversify their business and expand their impact. Plenty of opportunities exist—and seemingly good ones. Watch to hear how they discern God’s will as they approach acquisition opportunities.
