Success in business requires the merging of personal passions and professional goals. At King University, the online Bachelor of Business Administration allows students to be nurtured in both. King University’s religious foundation merges with a relevant and career-focused curriculum, allowing students to gain the skills they need for successful and meaningful careers.
I'm glad you found the post fascinating, but I wonder how many Americans actually share my views. I know many take offense when people say that America is no longer a Christian nation, but at the very least it seems to be Christian in name only. The American attitude towards business, productivity, and the accumulation of wealth is much different than the rest of the world. As a nation, we seem to value these higher than health, family, and spiritual well-being.
With respect, I think the article makes a simple concept more complex than it needs to be. But, I can understand, too, that — with the entire Christian community inundated with things like “The Purpose Driven Life” — there seems to exist some pressure today (that didn’t exist years ago) in making sure that every activity of one’s life has to be justified as “a way to glorify God”.
Nice post but while it sounds good in theory, faith based businesses don’t work well. My first passion as a Christian who loves tech was to create a business that would serve the community. I started from an events platform to an online radio station. I did this because I identified gaps in the market. There wasn’t any doubt that it would meet a need. However, most people wanted to use the services for free. Had many who came for what they could get and then left when they were asked to pay. They seem happy to pay with a “God will bless you”. However after many God bless you, there were no money to keep things afloat and they fail miserably.
In today’s economy, Christians are looking for businesses they can trust. They want a fair job for a fair price. But more than that, Christians want to know that the dollars they are spending with a business or service is going back to serving the Lord, whether through tithes, offerings, missions, supporting Christian families with Christian values, etc. What better way to find that business than in the Christian Business Referral Network.
