About Us

The Norcross Fellowship Luncheon (NFL) is a weekly luncheon that meets at 12:00 every Wednesday at the Golden Corral in Duluth, GA. The NFL's mission is to provide a platform for Christian businessmen to share their story of how God has touched their lives both personally and professionally.

The NFL has met every week since being started in September, 1985 by Larry Shrader and Heinz Wegener, and have had hundreds of businessmen share their testimonies. The NFL is not affiliated with any denomination or organization, has no membership, and has never taken an offering to support the meetings. Men and women from all denominations and those with no church affiliations attend. The meetings are denominationally inclusive and politically neutral and geared to businessmen sharing their faith in Jesus Christ and how that works in the marketplace.

NFL Goals:

  1. Provide a platform for Christian businessmen to share their story of how God has touched their lives.
  2. Create an environment where anyone will feel comfortable and will receive encouragement and help in their search to find purpose in life.
  3. Highlight other activities and organizations that can provide Christian training and discipleship.
