America’s leading Christian CEO forum, building GREAT businesses for a GREATER purpose.

Regardless of how long you’ve been a business leader, you probably still have those days when you are keenly aware of the gaps in your knowledge and experience. The challenge for many of us is that we don’t set aside time to work “on” our business rather than “in” it. We might read books, attend industry seminars or even engage consultants, but we don’t regularly schedule time to focus on big-picture issues. The C12 Group is a unique forum for Christian CEOs and business owners who are intentional about business, ministry and personal growth.

Randy Case

Managing Chair



Randy began leading the C12 Group Tidewater in 2007 to help leaders renew their minds, hearts, and vision to better serve God in their business. He began his career in finance working on Wall Street for Merrill Lynch, in M&A for Marshall and Co. in Atlanta, and as Chief Financial Officer for IMG Ltd, an Information Services company based in Switzerland. After turning his life to God in mid-career, Randy moved with his wife and children to Philadelphia to earn a PhD and teach business.  He taught Entrepreneurship, Business Strategy and Leadership for the next 20 years at Wharton, Boston College, and Regent University.  As professor, researcher and consultant his chief passion was helping leaders take the personal and organizational risk of innovation.

Today, Randy leads the C12 Group, which facilitates Ceo roundtables and coaches business executives in Richmond and Coastal Virginia who want to change and grow: their business, their leadership in family and culture, their relationship with God. Having struggled mightily to grow throughout his life, he now has the great privilege of coming alongside business leaders and growing with them.

Randy holds a BSME from UVA, an MBA from Columbia and a PhD from Wharton. He was trained in Transformational Leadership Coaching at Regent University and co-authored “The Christian on Monday Morning: Essential Readings for Living the Faith at Work.”  Randy and his wife, Shelley, open their home in Williamsburg to 20-somethings who want to get to know them and each other in community. Shelley is the gift God gave him that makes all the trials worthwhile. Their daughter Emily is a nurse in Charlottesville, and their son Andrew is a health care consultant in Richmond.

Ralph Miller



Ralph brings a unique blend of credentials to his role as C12 Chair in southeastern Virginia – entrepreneurial business founder/CEO, university Bible instructor and ‘top gun’ fighter pilot. Ralph’s life purpose is “to honor Christ by building Kingdom Builders in the marketplace.”

Ralph learned to integrate Christian faith and Biblical principles into business leadership during 15 years as Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Regent University ’s Graduate School of Business, where he had opportunities to teach Christian values, entrepreneurship, and international business. This role followed seven years of teaching Bible and church history at Regent University’s School of Divinity, where Ralph taught the whole counsel of God and pioneered a distance learning Bible survey course for hundreds of Divinity graduate students. Prior to this time, Ralph had 20 years of business experience, as CEO of RAM Aviation and board member of various public and private companies, as well as six years as a US Navy fighter pilot serving on USS Forrestal.

During 50 years of life’s challenges and successes, Ralph learned that “I can’t (didn’t), but He can (did), and He is in me and I am in Him.” The pastor who led Ralph to the Lord helped him to learn this truth and gain the courage to follow the Lord in anything that would enhance the Kingdom. In roles with Regent University and C12, Ralph’s greatest contribution has been encouraging entrepreneurs to build His Kingdom by being everything they can be for Christ in the marketplace. He has been with C12 since 1999.

Ralph holds a B.A. from the University of Virginia, an M.A. in Biblical Studies from Regent University, and is a graduate of the U.S. Navy Flight training School. Ralph and his wife Cathy live in Charlottesville, Virginia.
