Not Your Typical Business Group
We aren’t for everyone. We are not a fit for start-ups, sales people or employees of companies. We best serve business owners who have been in business at least 5 years with 3 – 10 employees. We also serve select solo entrepreneurs who are lawyers, chiropractics, doctors, business advisors, HR consultants and financial advisors because of their desire to grow and share their expertise abundantly to our Members. If you’re a business owner on the cusp of growth–with a positive mindset and giving spirit–and you’re passionate about helping your employees serve your customers with excellence, please join us at our next meeting.
This is Our WHY
The Key Elements to Your Cross Talks Success

Statement of Beliefs
Cross Talks is open to any high performing guest on the cusp of growth of any background or religion. It is important, however, to know our code of ethics if you are considered for membership.
Cross Talks Statement of Beliefs
We Believe and Affirm:
I. The Bible is God’s Word and God’s Word is complete, sufficient and final.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NKJV) All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
II. It is better to give than receive.
Acts 20:35 (NKJV) I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
III. The greatest is the one who serves.
Matthew 23:11-12 (NKJV) But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
IV. One’s personal and professional life should be God honoring.
Colossians 3:17 (NKJV) And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
V. Words and deeds must align.
James 1:22 (NKJV) But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
VI. God is the giver of life, life is precious in His sight and life should be sanctified.
Jeremiah 1:4-5 (NKJV) Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: 5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
Psalm 127:3-5 (NKJV) 3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. 4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. 5 Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; they shall not be ashamed, But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.
VII. God calls upon man and woman to bring forth new life in the Covenant of Marriage.
Genesis 2:24-25 (NKJV) Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
VIII. God has a special plan and purpose for those who hear His call.
Romans 8:28 (NKJV) And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
IX. God ultimately gives us the power to get wealth to be used for Godly purposes.
Deuteronomy 8:18 (NKJV) And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.
X. The best is yet to come.
John 14:1-2 (NKJV) Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
To show how working for something bigger than ourselves is critical to building and growing a business. It all starts first with God.
Cross Talks was created to meet a critical need. Most business owners are open to learning about God but are not clear how to apply God’s wisdom in a practical way. God gave Soraya a passion and talent to help business owners on the cusp of growth. Having worked with hundreds of business owners for over a decade, she saw that business owners who were able to make more profit, find freedom and have more productive employees were applying powerful lessons from characters in the Bible.
Every Cross Talk meeting includes hands-on business lessons from a different Biblical character.
The Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14–30) is clear: God expects you to get a good return on the assets He has entrusted to you, including profits to keep your company healthy, opportunities for your employees and a fair return for you and other shareholders. While profitability is critical, God’s definition of “success” requires integration with other priorities in life. Cross Talks was created to help meet this need.
I have been to hundreds of networking events, and Cross Talks is the most purposeful. The people, learning and hands-on learning is best in class. I love it!
Cross Talks focuses on the most important issues we face in business and life. I love that it includes relevant characters from the Bible. The new clients and friends I have made have immediately shown the return on investment. It is so refreshing to be part of such a trusting group.
