Title – Christian Entrepreneurship. Business as a platform for ministry.
The church has not traditionally encouraged our young ones to consider a career path of business start up and ownership. Our influence as Christian business owners adds value into the lives of customers, employees, and suppliers. If we want to spend our lives ministering to others, this is certainly a viable option that penetrates and positively affects those around us. Encouragement and support in this direction can change the future of our nation. It is an arena that allows us to use gifts to produce much fruit. Let the church support Christian business as a platform for ministry.
