This week the Nehemiah family is buzzing with excitement as the 2nd Young Biblical Entrepreneur Camp is in full swing, thanks to our partners at First Presbyterian Church of Orlando and Four12.

The Young Biblical Entrepreneur (YBE)  program is a Christian entrepreneurship program that prepares young students aged 11 –18 for real world business challenges by teaching them the value of teamwork, biblical ethics, and taking an idea from conception to the development of a profit. This popular camp, hosted by First Presbyterian Church of Orlando, is taking these enthusiastic, smart, innovative students through an intense five day program where the students developed their own business plans.

The camp will culminate in a graduation ceremony and “Shark Tank” style business plan competition complete with cash prizes. We look forward to sharing more details next week after the camp comes to a close!

Did you know that according to the U.S. Department of Labor, nearly “80 percent of would-be entrepreneurs in the United States are between the ages of 18 and 34.” Never has there been a greater need to train and equip the next generation of leaders under Biblical principles and values, which is the heart behind the Young Biblical Entrepreneurship program.

 “We want to raise leaders that are Christians, not just leaders. And oh my goodness, how magnificent is it when we see Christian leaders rise up to impact economy, to impact cities, counties, states – that’s exhilarating for us.” – Annette Johnson, Superintendent, Portland Christian Schools

“I would have never believed a 14 year old could write a business plan if I didn’t see it with my own eyes.” – John Drakesmith, Retired Businessman, YBE Business Plan Judge

FOUR12 is an after school program for 6th – 12th graders located at the Northwest Community Center in Orlando. We exist to educate and empower young people to be the change they want to see in the world.Screenshot 2016-07-26 at 10.12.28 PM
