Many churches are still struggling to regain their financial footing in this economic recovery. This is largely due to the domino effect of many families still being challenged financially due to the unemployment and underemployment situation. Research from Barna Group revealed that the church is falling short in in terms of providing proactive support to the economic crisis for their members or communities. Some of this is due to the financial pain churches are feeling. Some of it is that pastors and church leaders may not be aware of many of the practical things they can do – apart from just giving money – to those who are hurting financially.
Here are a few ideas your church can use to provide assistance and direction to your congregation and communities who are experiencing major financial challenge difficulties…
For many people entrepreneurship is the path to fulfilling their purpose and reaching their financial promise land. More importantly, we are teaching people how to do business God's way.
Also, we would love to come to your church to facilitate one of these boot camps for your congregation and community. Just contact us to today to get more details.

For the past two years I have been a guest columnist for Brotha Online magazine, which caters to presenting lifestyle solutions for Christian men (click here to check out my recent article "Kings & Priests in Business"). Earlier this year we decided to add a video component to the bi-monthly publication that accompanies my column with further teaching. We explore many characteristics and qualities of successful entrepreneurs and how they relate to operating effectively with the mind of Christ in the Kingdom of God.
Until now that video content was only available to be viewed online. Well not any more! We are extremely excited to be making this content available to you to download directly to your computer, iPad, and almost any other mobile video player for the extremely affordable price of only $9.50. So for less than 10 bucks you can get the mobile motivation that will energize and equip you to grow personally, professionally, and financially!
We currently have three videos available for download: Developing Entrepreneurial Minds for Christ, The Marketplace of Healing, and Kings & Priests in Business. We are constantly producing new content, so there will definitely be more videos coming online in the near future (click here for more info).
We are passionate about our commitment to help Christians develop entrepreneurial minds for Christ. These will be a valuable tools to help you confidently go where God called your business to grow!
“You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” ~ 1 Peter 2:9
Do you know who you really are in Christ? Do you realize the true authority and power that you have? There is more to you than you realize as an entrepreneur or business leader. God has more for you to do for His Kingdom than just grow your business. Here is a short excerpt from the article I wrote for the current issue of Brotha Magazine, Kings and Priests in Business:
"So, how does this royal priesthood relate to business? How do entrepreneurs and business leaders live out their priestly royalty in the marketplace? From God’s perspective there is no longer a sacred versus secular divide. When you are in God’s family all that you do is to be considered sacred, whether you work in the kingdom as a pastor, CEO, teacher, lawyer, engineer, janitor, etc.
As we continue to move forward in history, Christians in the marketplace are going to play an even greater role in the advancement of God’s kingdom than they have in the past. Did you know that 97% of Christians work in the secular world, not the church? Now join this truth with the fact that you will spend more time with the people you work with than a pastor ever will. Hopefully you can see that although you are operating in a secular environment, you have the opportunity to do something sacred every day while you are working. It is called evangelism and discipleship."

"One can chase a thousand and two can put ten thousand to flight." ~ Deuteronomy 32:30
I feel very inspired right now. Recently we launched a Christian Entrepreneur Boot Camp with some incredible leaders and entrepreneurs. The long-term potential of this program is even greater than I realized when God first gave us the idea to do it. My eyes are really being opened to what God wants to do through Kingdom Business U. For a long time I have been searching for a business model that had a large capacity and expansion potential to reach entrepreneurs around the world with Biblical and practical strategies to fulfill their purpose and grow their businesses. What's really exciting to me is that we are in the process of pulling together a very anointed and talented group of individuals to fulfill this vision. Now everything is not just dependent upon my own ideas, talents, capacity, etc. Our team is in position to demonstrate the body of Christ in action in the marketplace. That's how it's supposed to be.
Here are a few of my thoughts in terms of how this relates to the exponential power of cooperation...
Two (or more) minds are often better than just one. Achieving your dreams for you is uplifting, encouraging, and inspirational. However, partnering with others to achieve something unthinkable becomes legendary. As great as your ideas may be, they have the potential to be even much more robust and effective when you are able to combine them with other’s ideas. That’s innovation that makes a difference!
There are enough businesses out there for you to compete with each other. You need to find some entrepreneurs with whom you can complete each other. I call that "coopetition."
I love this quote by Napoleon Hill:
"When TWO or MORE people coordinate in a spirit of HARMONY and work toward a definite OBJECTIVE or PURPOSE, they place themselves in position, through the alliance, to absorb POWER directly from the Great Storehouse of INFINITE INTELLIGENCE."
Of course God is the "Great Storehouse of Infinite Intelligence," for in Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Colossians 2:3). And whether you call it a mastermind group, board of directors, dream team, or something else, there is great power in joining with other great thinkers in the pursuit of something far greater than what you could conquer on your own. "Lone Rangers" will eventually be strangers to success.
If you desire to maximize the potential of your time, talents, money, and ideas, find some people with whom you can cooperatively pursue significant opportunities. Exponential results are awaiting your business!
