The Christian Advantage was founded by Bruce Zoeller in 2005. Prior to this, God was developing a passion within Bruce to integrate an individual’s Christian faith with their business so tightly that, when addressed simultaneously, one’s Christian faith and business would flourish.
From a young age Bruce was greatly influenced by the family-owned business, Zoeller Pump Company. Founded in 1939, Zoeller Pump Company is the oldest independently owned U.S. pump manufacturer serving the United States, Canada and Mexico. Bruce obtained invaluable experience and knowledge through his father and the family business.
In 1990 Bruce began his own business venture, DP SPecialist, Inc., a custom programming company. In 1996, as a ministry outreach to serve Christian business professionals, Bruce organized a Business by the Book Seminar which teaches the implementation of Christian business principles in the management and growth of businesses. Because of overwhelming interest in this seminar two forum groups where started (under the leadership of Christian Business Men’s Committee) and, unknown at the time, this was the beginning of TCA.
God blessed Bruce’s ministry efforts so that within five years eight small groups had been established throughout the Louisville Metro area. In eight years this number grew to twelve. And in the year 2000, as Bruce acknowledged that God was blessing these efforts, he began to assist various forum members with personal business coaching.
Through TCA groups, continuing education seminars and personal business coaching, TCA provides its members with resources, accountability, wisdom and practical skills to be a business professional set apart by faith in Christ.
