After months of hard work and dedication, our 2015 Orlando Biblical Entrepreneurship III graduates gathered on December 16th to compete for the culmination of Biblical Entrepreneurship training: the Graduation Ceremony and Business Plan Competition!
This year, Dean and Jane Blankenship with Hosanna Building Contractors (HBC), a construction services company serving markets in Florida and Georgia, emerged as the Biblical Entrepreneurship champions! The couple presented their kingdom business plan, sharing their story of following God’s call to start a construction company. HBC’s mission is to be an organization that conducts business within an atmosphere that honors God by delivering a quality project in a timely manner with the client’s best interest at heart and in mind, from conception to completion.
The Blankenships are active in their local church and serve in several ministries. Through HBC, they have provided employment opportunities for individuals who were incarcerated and have funded several ministries. Dean is an ordained minister and a Biblical Entrepreneurship Certified Teacher.
To participate in the Business Plan Competition and be eligible for Biblical Entrepreneurship graduation, students must complete all three levels of the Biblical Entrepreneurship training (BE I, BE II, and BE III), and have a complete business plan ready to present to investors.
