How we Equip you to Start & Grow your Business
The Current Best Approach
Lean start-up methodology has emerged as the current best approach to starting a business and has disrupted the conventional big design-business plan-get sales approach to starting businesses. The underlying philosophy focuses on envisioning a future that meets an unmet need, service to a customer, experimentation, adaptation, and passionate persistence.
Theology of Entrepreneurship
Reframed by Jesus the Entrepreneur
We are experts in entrepreneurship, economics, business development, strategic planning, and Lean business practices. Our coaches and trainers have sharpened their irons in big corporations, small and growing enterprises, and non-profits. With our decades of experience in adult education, and entrepreneurial practice we synthesize or acumen with the wisdom of the Word of God.
There’s nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 The Message

The Founder & Chief Servant
I am the grandson of a Pastor and Entrepreneur. I grew up in a family running a church and several businesses in Gary, Indiana. I learned early how to handle money and later to rightly divide the Word of God.
I studied, business, finances, strategy, and economics in universities and worked as an economist in fortune 100 corporations and civic organizations before adventuring off to experience a series of entrepreneurial endeavors. I enjoyed some wins and had lots of learning days.
After years of running from the mantle of ministry passed on from my grandfather, I found my purpose at the intersections of faith and finances, economics and entrepreneurship, Bibles, and briefcases. After serving as an administrative pastor and advisor in two church plants I discovered my true calling as a minister in the marketplace. I now work directly for a Jewish carpenter. He sends me on assignments. Even now, I work for Him disguised and Professor of Economics and Entrepreneurial Coach and Trainer.
I believe we are all called to create, be fruitful, and productive. Moreover, Jesus is the best role model to follow. He was the first and greatest ever business start-up founder. He started an enterprise that has grown steadily for over 2000 years. When we follow his model, we too can create successful businesses that are led as he led, and afford the abundant life for the founders, their families, and communities.
