Growing up in a Christian church and community we often hear, “man and woman become one when they are married.” Mark 10:7-9 reads “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
Marriage can be challenging! How do two individuals become one flesh, as written in the Bible? How does a couple become a cohesive unit able to make decisions around raising children, finances, and conflicts in general while still honoring the uniqueness in which God created them? Furthermore, how does that translate in leading a business together?
Join us for the next Couple’s In Business course and discover a deeper unity and heightened sense of oneness. This class is for married couples. Two classes are scheduled for 2017: August 10 – September 21 and December 1 – January 12. These are live, weekly webinars led by Patrice & Gina Tsague. This will be a great way to connect with your spouse and other couples in a small group setting. Class size is limited to 5 couples per group.

Nehemiah Week 2017 International Business Plan Competition
There are so many great events taking place during Nehemiah Week 2017! One of these events is the International Business Plan Competition. Participants from around the world will be competing for cash prizes as they present their business plans before a panel of judges. This is great chance to see how the best kingdom entrepreneurs from Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America are planning and growing their businesses.
What is the vision God has placed deep within you? What is it about your purpose and calling that has yet to be fulfilled? What is holding you back from the growth you desire and need for your business? Sometimes the answer is as simple as writing it down and making a plan. Habakkuk 2:2 reads, “And the LORD answered me: ‘Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it”. Writing down your vision and goals is critical to successful planning. It is also important for your team to see the written plan so they become invested in the process. Have you completed your kingdom business plan? Have you taken time to review the plan you wrote years ago to insure it is the direction the Lord is leading you and in alignment with kingdom values, principles, and your calling? Taking the time to throughly develop your kingdom business plan will help you launch forward into growth.
