2018 Forum Sessions


Afternoon Workshop


Entrepreneurial Leadership in Christian Ministry

Given the often rather brash portrayal of entrepreneurs in the West, many Christians and church leaders are suspicious of Christians who are entrepreneurs. This session will look at the specific challenges that entrepreneurs face as Christians and explore some of the cultural barriers to being entrepreneurial, both within and outside the church. It will outline the vital first steps needed for starting any new venture that are often overlooked. With examples from Scripture and more recent history we will explore how entrepreneurial leaders can make an impact and participate in God’s mission in the 21st Century.
