We would like to equip our members with the biblical, spiritual and practical grounding of how to operate a Kingdom Business. A Kingdom Business is one that makes a positive impact in the community they serve through the giving of time, money and talents. We would like to see like-minded entrepreneurs get involved with our group to gain a better understanding of the purpose for their business and receive a greater understanding of how to conduct business the right way.
Our instructors have been in business from 2 to 30 years.
God is the owner of our business and so we steward it based on His principles. Treat others with grace and love, conduct business with the utmost character, be profitable and make a positive impact with the people and community we serve.
We would like our businesses to grow in order to provide needed jobs, provide additional revenue for the city and state, be profitable enough to give back to the community to help fund projects that help those in need. We would also like to utilize our talents in marketing, finance, fund raising and strategic planning to help other businesses become successful.
Very important. From the very beginning, God entrusted man to steward the earth, work it and provide a return. The majority of the heroes in the bible were in the marketplace and made a huge impact with their God given gifts. Joseph saved a nation because of his strategic mind to plan ahead for the time of famine. This is a great example of how God wants to use the entrepreneur to be able to help others doing times of need.
My team is made up of fellow business owners that understand the need to conduct business with excellence as a way of demonstrating God's character. We understand that this is God's business and we are just His stewards.
Great interaction and discussion. I hope to see everyone next month!
