I have been in the financial industry for 21 years. I have come alongside executives and have been in charge of my family’s finances for 13 years. I am blown away by the seminar today. I knew that I needed more education but being in the corporate world, having heard and maybe even seen a lot of this but I am SHOCKED that nothing even came close to the way you shared it. Seems so basic but is so true. It opened my eyes to how I can be a good steward and have dominion over my personal finances as well as my business.

In partnership with First Presbyterian Church of Orlando, the Biblical Entrepreneurship program was launched in Madagascar in 2018. The Biblical Entrepreneurship program helped the ministry to achieve new heights in their overseas mission strategy goal by creating a culture of entrepreneurship, innovation, and job creation in a country that was facing government instability and an economic crisis which led to a rapid increase of unemployment and increase inflation.

First Presbyterian Church of Orlando recognized that given the growing economic issues Madagascar faced, continuing a traditional overseas mission strategy was unsustainable. Many had begun to flee the country to look for security and provision elsewhere. First Presbyterian Church of Orlando wanted to ensure that the Malagasy people got the help to bloom where they were planted.

To date, 948 entrepreneurs have been trained, over $200K of capital has been invested in businesses, and the Biblical Entrepreneurship program has helped to create 480 new jobs in Madagascar. Madagascar Entrepreneurs also won two of the first-place and two of the second-place awards at the International Business Plan Competition, where they competed in the United States against entrepreneurs from both developed and developing nations. Today, despite continuing government instability, entrepreneurs have been given renewed hope that they can bloom on their own soil and contribute to a prosperous Madagascar as a result of our successful and active Biblical Entrepreneurship program.

Job creation is important, however, it doesn’t necessarily ensure transformation. Here is our impact metrics beyond job creation.

Dignity, empowerment, and stronger families rest in the hands of God. I’ve seen Him use entrepreneurs and jobs to bring these into the lives of people all over the world. My dream is to see over 10,000 God-honoring businesses and over 100,000 jobs created by 2030.

The best one-word description I can think of to describe Nehemiah Project’s BE curriculum is transformational. Unfortunately, nearly 100% of our training about money and operating a business has come from the world’s perspective – a perspective that seems to always be in opposition to God’s perspective. As a result, I do not believe a Christian business person can possibly become a Biblical Entrepreneur without incorporating the principles embedded in the BE course into their life and business.
