Good post, Brad. I know it was written a while back, but I just came across it. To me, a Christian entrepreneur is one who runs their business to bring honor to God. It may be in the way they deal with customers, what they do with their money, offering quality products, etc. Everything they do, they do to the best of their ability, as it says in Colossians 3:23, “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord aned not to men.”

"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!”
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.
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?
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.”
Core values- Values such as integrity, honesty and the pursuit of professional excellence are a reflection of an individual's self image, created by their religious beliefs, their family experience and life lessons. We have found that people with similar values work well together, work harder, teach each other, hold each other accountable and deliver a work product that serves the client well.

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.

The Bible is all about Jesus and His Atoning Sacrifice on the Cross for US! We don’t need to (and cannot) do anything more. I tell others of the Salvific work of Christ, and how believing in your heart (where only God can look), the Holy Spirit works change in our nature. Our we still sinful? YES of course but we’re freed of the crushing guilt of the Law and we rejoice at God’s forgiveness. We are all beggars; we look to Christ; we confess the one TRUE FAITH given once to the saints – why would you, Bill Woolsey, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, and countless others push new ideas on what Christ’s Church needs to do and to be ?
How many people obtain a University education, only to graduate and then become unable to find a job in their field of study? How many of those that do find a job end up busting their tail at a company that offers a measly $24,000 per year… just to “get into” their field of study via an entry level position… all in hopes of steadily receiving promotions, so that one day they make $50k to $100k? How many people get into serious debt for their college tuition, in the tens of thousands of dollars?

At each Close to My Heart Gathering they host, consultants have the potential to earn rewards credits and up to three 50% off items. You must sell $300 per quarter to remain active and you will receive a 22% base commission. Instead of having to wait to get paid by Close to My Heart, consultants just collect the money from the sale and then send the cost of the product to the company. As you sell more, you can receive higher commissions, up to 35% per month.

It’s a question that came to the forefront with Eden Foods, a self-proclaimed “faith-based” business challenging the contraception mandate. Although the owner filed suit out of religious objection to covering birth control, he admitted to reporter Irin Carmon he really didn’t care one way or the other, he just didn’t want to pay for it. “Because I don’t care if the federal government is telling me to buy my employees Jack Daniel’s or birth control. What gives them the right to tell me that I have to do that? That’s my issue, that’s what I object to, and that’s the beginning and end of the story.”
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?

The warnings of succumbing to the love of money are dire in the Bible.  The rich young ruler who claimed to be perfect in following the commandments was turned away by Christ because he loved his possessions more than his Creator.  There were none that contradicted the young man’s claim so we can assume he was probably a very good man, but it takes more.

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.

The Plan of Attack is a book that God put onto the heart of Scott (theChristiandude), and which Dude spent over a year and a half putting his heart into. It is the best step-by-step tutorial of its kind, created for beginners and first-time Internet marketers, and best of all written by a Christian, for Christians desiring to work from home. Over 200 pages of powerful, impactful, step-by-step planning, to initially make your first dollar online… and eventually take you to 6 figures a year, or more.

Do you know anyone who needs a website?  Do you know that 15% of our basic $125 – 5 page website – will earn you or your organization $18.75?   Then you continue to order 15% of every service from that website customer.  Most health affiliate programs don’t offer affiliate website building as well.    The best news is that your clients don’t have to be Christians to take advantage of our natural health products or our website building  service.
What if on top of that you had access to e-books, reports, video’s, software and tutorials to teach you everything you need to know about every type of Internet marketing and online prosperity that you could possibly need? What if you had products to promote and sell as your own? Then, what if you were taught how to create your own products for even more prosperity? Then, what if on top of all that you had a Christ-centered learning center to fully support your efforts? Even better, what if you’re cash poor and many of the marketing tactics you’re being taught didn’t cost you a penny?
