Love it. We have been in Peru for almost 48 years, doing missions but more recently (last 15 years or so) doing business for missions, being self supported, greater circle of influence in community, and region. Some question what we are doing….other missionaries…..as we have this stigma around Christian circles as you mention that making money is evil…secular etc.
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.

For experienced marketers, maybe one problem you have is a lack of products that you can promote as your own, or a general lack of direction as you’ve gotten spun in 20 different directions by “gurus” along with garbage products giving you poor information. Either way, we have got you covered. You’ve heard the saying, “You don’t know what you don’t know“, right? That may sound silly, but it succinctly describes to perfection the greatest problem that both aspiring Internet entrepreneurs and Christian work from home seekers tend to face.
In Christian church history, there have been periods of time when the church has really created a strict dividing line between clergy and laity; that is, between professional priests, pastors, and ministers versus all of the “ordinary” members who are not called to a particular church office. I hope that we lose that because every Christian is a servant, a minister.
There’s a comic strip that I shared a while back called “How to Over-Spiritualize Everything” that makes the same point you make in your comments. We can, I can, have a tendency to make things sound more spiritual than they really are; however, we are also guilty of not realizing the spiritual significance in things that surround us because we consider it too mundane for God to care about.

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?
Congrats on your 100th post. It's great as usual. My definition of a Christian Entrepreneur is someone (a Christian) who uses their talents, treasures, and time to operate a business, in which God has place them as a steward, in a manner that will bring Him glory, as well as be a blessing to his or her community, nation, and world as a whole through that business.

Students planning to complete their bachelor’s degree at other schools. Many state schools and some CCCU schools may not accept transfer credits from nationally accredited schools. It is up to each school on what transfer credits they accept. Based on this, for students that come to City Vision that do not plan to complete either their associate’s or bachelor’s with us, but expect to complete at a state university or CCCU school, we recommend that they first check with that school on credit transferability.
