"I would be stating the obvious to say that we work in a culture that pushes successfully for businesses to seek financial gain above all else. I am thrilled that someone finally thought to publish a guide that allows me as a consumer and a business owner to deal with people who have similar values. The Christian Business Referral Network proposes a new level of accountability in advertising and business practices that gives me greater confidence in my choices as a customer. It also inspires a greater trust of those patients who would choose our office because we are Christians. This was an inspired idea! WE LOVE BEING PART OF THIS MINISTRY!”
I am still contracting, but my wife & I have been feeling a shift in many of the areas that you speak of. I have always seen the business as a ministry & have seen God use it to impact lives, but we felt it was time to develop in our entrepreneurial thinking. I believe there is going to be a move of God in this nation & I believe it will be huge in the marketplace. Feel like we are just getting started down this path & I appreciate that God is stirring your heart & your sharing this.

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.

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.

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.
So is that what it takes to be a “faith-based” organization now? In some ways, it appears that these businesses get the best of all worlds: an ability to proselytize to employees and inject their biblical worldview, but without the onus that true ministries have to actually improve the lot of the poor. Instead, they not only get to build their profit for their own comfort, but receive the benefit of tax write offs for giving parts of those profits to true faith-based organizations, who also then do not have to pay taxes because they are religious organizations and non-profits.
Student pursuing academic careers, since many high-end schools may require Ph.D.’s from regionally accredited schools. A very small percentage of jobs (mostly academic) require regional accreditation.  For example, a recent search of jobs in Boston showed 19 jobs out of 65,645 total requiring regional accreditation (of which 18 were in academic institutions).
It just occurred to me on this, my 100th post, that I don’t think I’ve ever really answered the question, “What is a Christian Entrepreneur?” That seems pretty silly of me since it is the name of the blog.  It’s a simple enough question that would seem self explanatory at first glance, but the more you really stop to think about it the deeper and more complex the answer becomes.
Many community colleges or state schools will advertise “free” or nearly free tuition. Historically, for City Vision students that have applied for a Pell grant, 79% have qualified. For students that receive a full Pell grant, the grant will pay all your tuition making the cost to the student only the cost of books (which is similar to many community colleges or state schools). 
There have been over 100 lawsuits against the contraception coverage mandate in the Affordable Care Act, with a majority of them being filed by so-called “faith-based” businesses. In some cases, with religious educational institutions like Notre Dame, the affiliation makes sense. In others, such as Hobby Lobby, the designation becomes a little more tenuous. After all, does giving millions of dollars in profit to religious groups and organizations really mean that you yourself are a faith-based business? Or does it just mean you’re using your own specific belief system when you are trying to whittle down your profits in order to minimize your tax liability?

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.
Our top sellers include: Tiger Balm®, Prince of Peace® Ginseng & Teas, Bee & Flower Soap, Han’s Honey Loquat, and more. These lines can be found in all the major health food chains. Many high quality European and American products such as Delacre® assorted cookies, Ferrero Rocher® chocolates, Almond Roca®, Loacker® Wafer and Ricola® Natural Cough Drops are among the exclusively distributed line.
The fact is, our pricing will increase, and even we, ourselves, have not decided at what point we will increase to the next phase! It could come tomorrow, or it might be in a couple months. If you decide to join now, you will be locked into that pricing for as long as you’re a member. Why not start blessing yourself now? Why not be a Christian working from home, with your own Christian home business?
Brother Brad, your post is interesting and inspiring. I agree with you totally. I also hold it strong that every believer ought to do whatever we do, be it business, work or daily personal activities with this understanding that we are stewards of all that we are and will ever be and have; this implies that our entrepreneuring activities must bring glory to God, blessings to us and others around. It does not in any way undermine discipline and proper management of the resources entrusted to us. god bless you Sir.
This is provided as a sample degree completion plan for a full-time transfer student, but students can chose any degree completion plan as long as it meets the graduation requirements for their degree. Students not near graduation should also consider taking courses outside their major to meet their general education requirements or take any course to count toward their total credit requirements for their degree.
Although I was born in a Christian family, it wasn’t until I had a personal encounter with Christ that my faith grew deeper. As an Christian entrepreneur, I knew God had given me certain gifts and talents so I could bless others through it. It was through such a calling that Clothed in Scarlet was born. As I learnt more about Jesus and soaked myself in the Scriptures, I was amazed at how God would often teach me Biblical principles I could implement in my own business. The emails I receive from women worldwide are proof that God was blessing many through my business.

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?
