In 1980, Skip Carney rented some space and started a business… a recording studio/advertising agency. He has been taking care of brands ever since. “Every day is a new day at Carney & Company,” he says. “Each day brings new challenges and new opportunities. We get to work with some really great, smart folks who are working to improve the lives of the people they serve.”
We live to serve is the company philosophy, and Skip believes that starts within the company and extends to the community and to clients. “Our job is to make our clients’ jobs easier, to solve their marketing problems and to help them communicate more effectively. All the while, we work hard to make our community better and stronger.”
Skip likes to quote Peter Drucker, who said, “Business has only two functions – marketing and innovation,” and Jesus, who said, “You are the light of the world,” and Billy Graham, who said, “I believe one of the next great moves of God is going to be through the believers in the workplace.”
Carney says, “I see every reason in the world why businesses should adopt Christian principles and why churches should adopt business principles. Churches must innovate and market or they will become irrelevant. Businesses must minister to their employees and customers, using Christian principles, particularly the Golden Rule, as guideposts.”
Skip completed his first book The Greatest Church in the World in October 2018.

The result is a vibrant, thriving church and a tight-knit community that truly cares for its members …
