Who We Are
In the early 1970s, insurance innovator and founder of National Liberty Corporation, Art DeMoss, launched a faith-based movement in Philadelphia uniquely geared to help business and professional men & women find balance, focus and direction in a rapidly changing world.
From Philadelphia this movement spread across the country, first to New York City and other cities along the East Coast, then, gathering momentum, to cities in the Midwestern and Western U. S. and eventually to several European cities. Physicians Paul Peterson and Pat Lester, who shared Mr. DeMoss’ vision, brought what is now called FocalPoint to Tulsa in 1993.
We all face challenges that affect us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Drawing on both our experience in the marketplace and the Bible, FocalPoint seeks to help businessmen and professional men & women make the rest of their life the best of their life.
Using a variety of tools, including small groups, professional development seminars, special events featuring well-known speakers, and personal consulting, we offer opportunities for personal and professional growth.
What We Do
At FocalPoint Forums top leaders present on important topics of relevance to the marketplace. The twofold goal of the Forums is, one, to help influencers maintain focus in today’s turbulent world, and two, to provide tips to take our leadership and management skills to the next level.
The week following every Forum, FocalPoint offers Further Focus. Using the Forum presenter’s remarks from the precious week as the basis of the discussion, facilitators guide us on an in-depth examination of the Forum topic, including from the Bible’s perspective.
StraightTalk is a quarterly event. The difference between a Forum and a StraightTalk is that at the latter the keynote speaker will not only address a topic of relevance to the marketplace, he or she will also describe the difference that faith makes in their personal and professional lives.
The mission of the FocalPoint Mentoring Program is to create collaborative, mutually beneficial partnerships between mentors who possess greater maturity, knowledge and experience and mentees who are looking to increase their maturity, knowledge and experience. FocalPoint offers mentoring to both the salaried and the entrepreneur.
