On the weekend of Friday November 7th through Sunday November 9, 2014, I was privileged to be the keynote speaker at the launch of Biblical Entrepreneurship in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, at the commissioning of Ray Jelinski.

The launch was held at the Lighthouse To All Nations, a local church in Regina, Saskatchewan Canada, Pastored by Femi and Remi Ogunrinde.  About 50 people gathered live, and many others through live stream for the conference kick off of Biblical Entrepreneurship including the leadership of the Church.  The success of this launch has resulted in 25 registered attendees for the first BE class in Canada!  This class will take place on November 20th to 22nd and will be taught by Pastor Eric Bahme and Ray Jelinski.

Regina

Though the program is being launched in Regina, Ray’s vision is to expand Biblical Entrepreneurship through each Canadian Province using a similar business model that we use in the United States.  Regina, historically has been a lackluster city but recently through prayer, church leaders and a God sent leader who fears God, is now experiencing and a God sent a leader who fears God is now experiencing a boom. for more information about this boom watch this video SASKATCHEWAN: CANADA’S BOOMING PROVINCE. It is no accident that Biblical Entrepreneurship is staring and will be headquartered in this city.

How did this start?

It was about four years ago at a conference in Dallas Texas when Ray Jelinski first heard about Biblical Entrepreneurship and determined then, that he wanted to take the class.  Less than three years later, Ray began his Journey as a Biblical Entrepreneurship student through our online campus, without any idea that he would soon be inspired to lead Biblical Entrepreneurship Canada.   He also took some of his classes in Kalispell Montana, including his BE Teacher Certification.  After much prayer and council with his wife Karen he was led to purchase a BE License for Canada and launch BE Canada.

Ray worked in the corporate world for 24 years in the telecommunications industry, before joining the Apostolic team at Lighthouse To All Nations Church, in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.  He is Dean of the Royal Commission Training Center (RCTC) which equips students in the 7 Mountains of societal influence.  Rays vision is founded on Psalm 72:8, which is on the parliament building in Ottawa “That he shall have dominion from sea to sea”. According to Ray “Our forefather founded our nation on that scripture. My vision for BE is to see entrepreneurs and businesses built upon a biblical foundation and have dominion from sea to sea to sea”.   BE Canada is open for Business and poised to take Canada by storm.
