You may know that our mission is to “build and equip Kingdom businesses globally,” but what does that look like in practice? This month, we are seeing God raise up leaders to do amazing things when His people come together in prayer, worship, and commit their plans to Him!
Here are a few highlight from those events:
Sustainable Mission Night
On June 15th , Debra Schlaht, Director of International Programs, launched the Sustainable Missions Initiative at Carolina Missionary Baptist Church hosted by Pastor Anthony Moore. Sustainable Missions seeks to connect churches, organizations and its members around the world in a common effort to establish Kingdom businesses. Debra also shared NPIM’s belief that people have the internal ability to overcome poverty and problem-solve issues that face their own communities and nations.
The 1st Kingdom Business CEO Roundtable was held in Tysons Corner Virginia. We welcomed a number of guests representing various sectors including business, non-profit, clergy, and government and engaged in lively discussions. The panelists included Patrice Tsague, Hugh Whelchel, Bob Benoit, Loretta Penn, Reverend Alan Harrison, and Jerome Leonard. The question of “How to create a product template for a faith based company” was addressed from multiple perspectives ranging from micro to global enterprises. The executives eloquently delivered foundational blueprints for recruiting and hiring the right people, building a godly culture, influencing the community, and collaborating with government and non-profit enterprises.
The audience was blessed by the wisdom shared and left with renewed commitments to bring faith intentionally into their work environments.
These events created great momentum and ignited our commitment to double up our investment in the nations capital under the leadership of Jerome and Kelly Leonard.
