The daughter of Taiwanese business icon Y.C. Wang, Cher Wang is the founder of the HTC Corporation. Wang was born into a family of successful moguls and was encouraged early on to take the initiative in everything from extracurricular activities to studying abroad. She eventually earned her master’s degree in economics and founded HTC in 1997. While her company originally built notebook computers, she urged her partners to switch to building cellphones when she realized their potential. The New York Times reports that her Christian faith is a significant factor in her life and business choices. “Jesus tells us you have to work hard,” Wang says. “I don’t understand the idea of leisure time.”

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.
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.
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.”

Think for a moment about selling a $49.95 e-book with 50% commission… you make $24.97 when you cause that websurfer to click their mouse button. Gee, if only you had a “plan of attack” to learn how to start your own Christian home-based business, instead of always chasing your tail and wondering where to start and what to do next! Ohhhh… wait a second. We offer that to you!


Regardless of the success and profitability of a particular idea, the entrepreneur must make good on his commitments and do what it takes to pay off any debts that he may have incurred while pursuing his vision. This financial “sword of Domacles” motivates the entrepreneur to work strategically to best serve people in the market  and make his enterprise a success.
Eventually, the Supreme Court will weigh in on the issue and decide whether freedom of religion extends even to businesses who simply say “I’m a religious entity” in order to avoid portions of federal law that they simply don’t like. Regardless of what that decision is, it’s becoming more and more clear that we are dividing into a country with two distinct sides, with one side believing that not only are we a Christian nation but that it is a moral imperative to live that principle out loud in every avenue, from politics to school to where we eat and apparently now what we drive.
I highly respect those who subscribe to the school of thought that there should be nothing professional about Christian ministry. I understand where you’re coming from. I’ve read John Piper’s book, Brothers, We Are Not Professionals. It’s a great book. It reminds us that we’re not just here to analyze markets and produce numbers. I completely agree.
