The Kingdom Entrepreneur

Course Description:

Purpose/Process

The Kingdom Entrepreneur consists of three distinct segments, each having two parallel tracks: one that explores Kingdom worldview and the other that instructs in Business Administration.  In the broad sense, this course will encourage the entrepreneurial spirit that the Father put in each one of us, the innate desire to create and prosper.  It looks at business as a mission, either profit or non-profit.


The two main goals of this class are:

  1. For the student to grasp their unique call to be part of bringing God’s Kingdom to earth as it is in Heaven in every aspect of life.

  2. To equip the student with crucial business tools that will empower them to turn their dreams into a prosperous reality.

The focus of segment one is Identity.  The goal is for each student to gain a better understanding of their Kingdom identity and their God-given gifts and talents.  As the student begins to develop their own business idea, they will also learn how to develop the identity of their business through vision and mission statements, designing a logo and shaping their brand for marketing.


Segment 2 explores Relationships.  We will seek to understand the relational nature of God our Father and learn to model our relationships based on His love and encouragement to build up the Body.   This model can be extended to business relationships, as well.  The goal of this track will be to gain an understanding of leading and managing people, time and inventory.  In addition, we will apply these relationship principles to working with customers, suppliers and the marketplace at large.


Segment 3 examines Economy.   We will compare God’s definition of wealth, riches, prosperity and honor to their worldly counterparts.  Students will learn that currency in God’s Kingdom comes in many different forms and that our Father has set forth numerous laws and principles for increase and prosperity.   On the Business track, students will learn how to measure the financial health of their business through accounting and record-keeping.  They will learn how to determine the cost of doing business and pricing their product or service.


In addition to a greater understanding of who they are and what they are called to do, students will produce a complete business plan for their dream business.
