PDXbanquet promo - Nehemiah E-Community

We are excited to invite you to an inspiring evening to hear Tom Mears, Chairman of Burgerville, share how he transformed Burgerville into a Pacific Northwest iconic brand by simply clarifying the company’s mission and insisting that everyone live by it.  At the 5th Annual Kingdom Impact Dinner on April 19, we will continue our standing tradition of highlighting the impact of Biblical Entrepreneurship around the world and raising support for Biblical Entrepreneurship training. We are also excited for the opportunity to give a free autographed copy of Tom’s newest book, Serve with Love, to the first 50 guests who arrive at the event.  Tom will also be available to sign additional purchased copies of his book.  We hope to see you there!

Called to Equip

Preparing the Next Generation of Entrepreneurs

Thumbs up - Nehemiah E-CommunityTo teach and truly equip someone takes more than just the knowledge of the subject at hand. To be prepared to teach you will need to be equipped with tools and be able understand:

  1. Your Students. Gaining a grasp of how they learn and how their lives have brought them to this place of learning and discovery is essential. Students remember less of the information being taught and more about the impartation being made into their lives. Students who can quickly understand how to integrate what is being learned will increase the amount of information retained.
  2. The Material. There is the old and true adage: “you can’t give what you don’t have.” A good teacher who understands well the material being taught and who can be comfortable making it their own will have great success; knowing how to appropriately use their own experiences and perspectives to bring the information to life in a meaningful way.
  3. How People Learn. There are a variety of learning styles that any teacher will encounter in their students. The effective teacher learns to use as many styles as possible to get the information across. It may involve physical activities, discussions, visuals, or other teaching tools—it is not a question of how the teacher most likes to teach but how the student is most likely to learn.
  4. Teaching as a Business. The Bible says that a workman is worthy of his wages. A good teacher should expect a return on his investment of time, resources, energy, and heart into becoming prepared to teach entrepreneurs. Don’t sell yourself short! We are looking for teachers who also desire to demonstrate the entrepreneurial spirit by starting their own teaching business—with our coaching and support.

It is a comprehensive 24-hour in-class course, plus additional hours to launch your first class and co-teach to complete your certification.
