Protecting Yourself in Times of Consolidation
by David Saylor | President & Founder
How do you protect yourself from something you never could imagine would happen? The answer is...you can’t. You can, however, play and adjust. Over the last eight years we have seen massive consolidation in the banking industry. Banks are acquiring to survive as are the vendors.

At Genesys, we have the priviledge of running into some of the most amazing ministries. We love the summer time because we know that fathers and sons from all over the United States are gathering in Colorado on a true adventure.
Christ in the Rockies (CITR) is a unique ministry that feeds a man's spirit of adventure. Mike and his team bring the lost art of "confirmation" and "ceremony" to a fun filled week where a father and son can bond in the name Christ. CITR provides fathers with the opportunity to pour truth in their sons while confirming them with their belief that they, as fathers, believe in their sons and let them know they have exactly what it takes to make it in the world today.
If this peaks your interest...check out Christ in the Rockies here.
