StewardshipBy: Al Stevens, Chairman of the Board
"Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found faithful."
-- 1 Corinthians 4:2
Stewardship is a principle taught in the Bible. A steward is a caretaker who has been entrusted by the owner to guard and invest what has been given through careful use of time, talent, and wisdom to improve its worth. A caretaker is accountable to the owner for the results that are produced. We are caretakers of everything that we have in life, including OPEX Corporation. This is an awesome responsibility when you consider all of the families that depend on OPEX for their livelihood.
We are also conscious of our need to be good stewards of the world God has given us. In April of 2012, we took a major step to become one of the largest commercial companies in New Jersey to meet all of our electrical power needs through the use of solar panels. The initial investment was significant, but it will result in savings that will last for several decades and benefit the environment.
