Strive Masiyiwa is a mobile telecoms giant and Zimbabwe’s richest man. He is the founder of Econet Wireless, a company that provides telecommunication services to more than 15 countries on and beyond the African continent. His initial attempts to begin in entrepreneurship were met with hostility from his government, which had a monopoly on communications services at the time. Eventually the government conceded, and demand for his product exploded. Masiyiwa told Forbes magazine that praying hard and giving back are two key elements to his entrepreneurial strategies. To complement this, he also co-runs a Christian charity that has sponsored education, food, and healthcare for more than 28,000 Zimbabwean orphans.
City Vision is nationally accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC), which is recognized by the US Department of Education and CHEA. The US Department of Education does not recognize a distinction between regional and national accreditation in its standards and recently stated, “The Department does not believe…that rejecting transfer credits, an application for admission to graduate school, or a request to sit for a State occupational licensing exam on the basis of the type of Department recognized accreditation is justified.”
Entrepreneurship is as much a process as it is a set of traits. However, certain traits are essential to success and play an important role in how the entrepreneurial process unfolds. These traits–faith, perseverance, sacrifice, and service–are integral characteristics of the Christian as well.  God admires them and encourages us to admire them, too.
I came across your site by chance or better yet by God’s will today. I started a business sometime ago but haven’t been able to really put my all and all into it to date because I still work full-time for someone else. Your encouraging points about our Lord being an Entrepreneur gave me food for thought, especially the one that said “Do what you need to do today until God opens up another door tomorrow.”
The Kingdom of God is not of this world. It’s not one of the seven pillars. Religion is humanly established. It’s organized. It’s regulated. There are rituals or things that we manage from a human perspective, but God’s Kingdom, the Bible says, is within you. It’s invisible.It’s basically the rule and reign of Jesus. Wo everybody that says, “I follow Jesus” is part of the Kingdom of God.
If you purchase at that price, you will be locked into that pricing for as long as you remain a member of theChristiandude.com. Once we enter the next phase of pricing, your pricing will remain the same. We at theChristiandude.com pride ourselves on working with integrity, so please understand this is not a silly “hurry up and buy now” tactic simply to drive sales with no intention to ever raise the pricing. We will raise our pricing, and the pricing referenced above will remain in effect only until we decide on proceeding to the next phase!
Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:6-9)

Still, the owner, Doug Erickson, insists it is a religious company because, when it was failing and he thought about selling them off, he “gave it over to God” and now it makes money. “Erickson believes that his role as President and majority shareholder of the Dealerships is that of a steward of a business given to him by God and that his employees are God’s children who are entrusted to his care. He regards it as his religious duty to operate the Dealerships in conformity with his religious beliefs,” states the complaint. It also notes that he believes his company is a “marketplace ministry,” meaning he evangelizes to his employees and customers — a fact that I’m sure some of his customers would no doubt prefer to be made aware of before coming to shop.


In-N-Out Burger http://www.in-n-out.com/  also makes its founders' religious leanings part of its recipe. For instance, "John 3:16" appears on the bottom of soft drink cups, a reference to the Bible passage, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
The concept of HOUSE BLEND CAFE developed over the course of several years of dreaming of a creative way to connect with people and impact lives - 100% of net profits are used to love and serve people in the local community and around the world (feeding the homeless, funding services for women and children in need, home renovation projects and helping to restore neighborhoods, supporting other people who have a heart to serve, and starting other HOUSE BLEND CAFE’s in other communities).

God created work before the Fall. It is a good thing and is meant to provide fulfillment and as a means to glorify the Lord. So why do so many young people have a goal of avoiding work at all costs? Having a Biblical view of work is crucial for young people so they grow up to love hard work and the satisfaction that accompanies labor.  We have a passion to instill God’s perspective on work to the next generation!


I used to work at a private university run by priests. Mobbing by the rector was the rule, greed and extorting money from students too, as well as finding ways of not paying the employees (for instance, although Christmas and Easter are bank holidays, they treated them as my personal leave and paid me less). And, as a priest, the rector behaves as if he were above the law. Or maybe it's the Vatican law he obeys, not the Polish law?
From a Christian social justice perspective, many have called the distinction between regional and national accreditation a cartel that is a major injustice that hurts the poor.  Having said that, there are those that still maintain this distinction, so we address their concerns in this section. This letter from Dr. Leah Matthews addresses some concerns about the quality of DEAC accreditation.
Well what do you reckon on this? When my wife and I moved to a different area in England and attended (for the first time!!) a new Church where we knew nobody (over 100 miles from where we had previously lived!!) a talk “A Church Jesus Would Go To ” (also down for the weekend was my mother in law!!!) I got a word of knowledge regarding a gift of extreme creative entrepreneur thinking that had been given me and it should be harnessed. Now the Church (the same Church we attended for the talk) to this day we are still members of and my wife regularly attends is an Anglican Church, holy spirit lead and filled with level headed, sensible followers of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I had the option to believe this or reject it. I have chosen to believe it and hope this can encourage other christain entrepreneurs “to stick in there”. Pray about your new venture , about if it aligns with God’s purpose for your life OR do reject it (your choice !!!)…… OR be obedient and be lead by God and forge ahead with God leading. In my heart of hearts I believe Jesus uses us in all ways to spread his word and being in business is just another way we should embrace

I highly respect those who subscribe to the school of thought that there should be nothing professional about Christian ministry. I understand where you’re coming from. I’ve read John Piper’s book, Brothers, We Are Not Professionals. It’s a great book. It reminds us that we’re not just here to analyze markets and produce numbers. I completely agree.
Madam C.J. Walker is considered one of America’s first women to become a self-made millionaire. Born to former slaves, Walker faced a series of difficulties early in life. These included poverty, the death of her parents, and several failed marriages. Eventually she moved to Colorado and found work as a sales agent, which eventually inspired her to start her own business. She began to sell her own line of hair care products designed specifically for African-American women. At her peak, she ran a host of factories both in the United States and abroad. Walker spent a good deal of her life advocating for the rights of African-Americans and gave away much of her earnings both during her life and at her death. Recipients included the NAACP, the YMCA and YWCA, historical preservation projects, and civil rights causes.
John D. Rockefeller is considered one of the most influential businessmen of the 20th century. Interested in entrepreneurship from a young age, he began his first proper venture at age 20. At 24 years old, he opened his first oil refinery, a decision that eventually led to his founding of Standard Oil Company. At its peak, Standard Oil controlled 90 percent of refineries and pipelines in the United States. Devout in his faith, Rockefeller contributed a great deal of his wealth to philanthropic causes. By his death, he had given away more than $530 million.
What you’ve written is atrocious. It is not found in the Bible anywhere. Instead of trying to make Jesus/the Bible relevant to today, you might focus on Biblical Truths. Christ came, lived a perfect life, taught the disciples, was killed as a sacrifice for the SINS of us all, Rose from death to live eternally – and will return to judge all humanity – not based on any entrepreneurship or how well we lived, but by our belief in Him as our Savior.
A 30 day, task-oriented, Christ-centered lesson plan, and the ultimate “getting started guide” to Internet marketing success. The Plan of Attack is over 200 pages long and is one of the most in-depth tutorials of its kind, written by theChristiandude himself. This is not a tutorial series written by someone else and a new cover slapped onto it. This is the real deal, and not only are they the same exact tactics that Dude used to get started, but also the same tactics he still uses today for his own prosperity and for his own Christian home business.

However, entrepreneurship can become detrimental to one’s spiritual life if it becomes an idol or if the entrepreneur is serving Mammon rather than God (Luke 16:13). Some entrepreneurs become so immersed in work that they neglect family, friends, their health, and the Lord. When anything takes our total focus for an extended period of time, it can shift our lives out of balance. So Christian entrepreneurs must work to keep priorities straight and remember that a business with God’s blessing will fare better than one without it. The Lord will not tolerate our idols, so a new business owner must work to keep success from becoming more important than anything else.
