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).
I appreciate the fact that Jesus did business and sincerely he might not have been exceptional in his business. As a Jew, he would have charged correctly and moderately for his jobs following the teachings of Moses for business dealings. He wouldn’t have started a business on charity but definitely there would be room for compassionate services. If He did not do well in apprenticeship and carpentry business God would not hand the Kingdom business of saving the world to him. That is the Kingdom rule that He also taught us. Of course, he must have also learnt honesty, so to say, from Joseph whom the Bible referred to as being righteous in Matt 1:19.
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.”

I also believe that Christian entrepreneurs who are not working in the “church” space should think more ministerially. If you’re successful in business, if you lead people, if you start things, if you earn money, if you influence your community or your culture in the business world, then you ought to be seeking ways to serve other people and to share your faith with people in loving ways.
Ultimately, choosing City Vision’s national accreditation over a regionally accredited school is a question of value: you get more for your money with City Vision. If you need the “gold plating” of regional accreditation for one of the reasons described above, then it may be worth paying 2-10 times more to get a degree with regional accreditation from another school. However, because of the career choices of our students, they prefer to choose the value of City Vision rather than more expensive high-end options.
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.
Although Adam was not an entrepreneur, the first thing God did when He created Adam was to give him a job (Genesis 2:15). We are created to work, to use our minds and our hands to subdue this world and rule over it (Genesis 1:28). Scripture praises industriousness and hard work (Proverbs 14:23; 31:27; Ephesians 4:28). By contrast, those who are idle are harshly reprimanded (Proverbs 19:15; 2 Thessalonians 3:6). We are instructed to make it our “ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands” (1 Thessalonians 4:11).
When I hear about Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, or so many others who have made millions or billions of dollars and then have established foundations and trusts in their name whereby they can continue to distribute money through charitable causes throughout the years to come, I think that’s awesome! I think we ought to celebrate that, and I think we ought to duplicate that, that Christians.
"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!”
Companies like Sears, Amazon, eBay, Esprit Clothing Company, Cabela’s, and hundreds more pay you money to market their products for them online. Every sale you make for them, they compensate you… usually with commissions ranging from 10% to 25%. Those are companies you can represent as an affiliate, through your affiliate marketing campaigns and running a 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.
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.

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.

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.
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?

The Church tends to lag behind. Whatever the world around us creates, we recreate fifteen years later and 85% as well. You see this in Christian film. You see it in Christian entertainment. We often give a free pass to very poor quality because we figure, “Well, this is the Christian version. It’s not supposed to be as good.” We just lag behind, and we wait for the marketplace to tell us what to do.
You also learn here at theChristiandude.com how you can create your own Christ-centered e-product (or any type of product for that matter, whether Christian or more “main stream”), that you can then promote and sell for 100% of the profits through the most commonly used Internet marketing tactics in existence, which we will teach you! Not limited to, but including: Content and article marketing, PPC (pay per click) advertising, social media advertising (like Facebook marketing, Twitter, or Pinterest), Video marketing (like Youtube), SEO (search engine optimization), Google Adsense and Adwords, and more!
