Session 1: Preparing Your Spirit and Your Mind
Session 1 of the Entrepreneurship Series focuses on the truth that we are created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27) and that we have a responsibility to follow his example (Ephesians 5:1). We prepare our spirit by understanding work as a form of worship and as a basis for business. We prepare our minds by drawing out creative and critical thinking skills as a basis for addressing the challenges and opportunities businesspeople encounter in East Africa.

Session 1 Outline
  • Defining the Problem
  • Preparing Your Spirit
  • Preparing Your Mind

Session 2: Discovering Your Gifts and Your Assets
Session 2 of the Entrepreneurship Series focuses on acknowledging that God can and will supply all our needs (2 Corinthians 9:8) according to a variable system. We discover our gifts and assets by examining our tangible and intangible resources. We learn to appreciate these gifts as God-given and to view them as part of his equipping plan. We explore ways to develop those gifts and assets  as we understand their purpose in kingdom stewardship.

Session 2 Outline
  • Asset-based Development
  • Business Concept Development
  • Kingdom Stewardship

Session 3: Analyzing Your Environment
Session 3 of the Entrepreneurship Series focuses on the importance of seeking knowledge and understanding from the Lord (Proverbs 2:6) so that we are equipped to analyze our environment. We use three tools—PEST, SWOT, and Competitive Analysis—as a means of building knowledge and understanding, which are a basis for starting and growing our own business.

  • SWOT Analysis
  • Competitive Analysis

Session 5: Building Your Strategic Framework
Session 5 of the Entrepreneurship Series focuses on the reality that we were created for a purpose (Ephesians 2:10) and that we have a responsibility to fulfill that purpose (Exodus 9:16). Using that biblical model, we develop a framework for our business or church that enables us to fulfill our own God-given purpose.
