Christian Entrepreneurs Are Kings and Priests in the Marketplace

“You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” ~ 1 Peter 2:9

Do you know who you really are in Christ? Do you realize the true authority and power that you have? There is more to you than you realize as an entrepreneur or business leader. God has more for you to do for His Kingdom than just grow your business. Here is a short excerpt from the article I wrote for the current issue of Brotha Magazine, Kings and Priests in Business:

So, how does this royal priesthood relate to business? How do entrepreneurs and business leaders live out their priestly royalty in the marketplace? From God’s perspective there is no longer a sacred versus secular divide. When you are in God’s family all that you do is to be considered sacred, whether you work in the kingdom as a pastor, CEO, teacher, lawyer, engineer, janitor, etc.

As we continue to move forward in history, Christians in the marketplace are going to play an even greater role in the advancement of God’s kingdom than they have in the past. Did you know that 97% of Christians work in the secular world, not the church? Now join this truth with the fact that you will spend more time with the people you work with than a pastor ever will. Hopefully you can see that although you are operating in a secular environment, you have the opportunity to do something sacred every day while you are working. It is called evangelism and discipleship.

6 More Ideas for Your Church to Economically Empower Your Congregation and Community

Last week I wrote a post “7 Great Ideas for Your Church to Economically Empower Your Congregation and Community” The key thing to remember about all these ideas is that the pastor doesn’t have to do them all or lead every effort. It’s time to strategically engage the businesspeople and professionals in your church who would be more than happy to share their expertise with their fellow church members and the community.

Here are 6 more ideas…

  1. Conduct job search/career development workshops facilitated by HR experts from the church
  2. Connect with multiple churches to host a job fair
  3. Develop a listing of members with their trade/skill and publish a directory
  4. Generate revenue for a career services program by selling ads to the business owners (see #3)
  5. Faith-based business workshops
  6. Invite speakers from local jobs-related programs

What has your church done to help to economically empower your congregation and community?

Global Evangelism and Marketplace Ministry Collide

Recently I have really been engrossed with the increasing attention given to breaking down the so-called “sacred-secular divide.” I am excited to hear more and more Christians engaging in this conversation because it seems we are finally waking up to the reality that every Believer is a minister and a missionary, and we all have a role to play in building the Kingdom of God, especially through marketplace activities.

As you know from some of my recent posts, I am very focused on dealing with the unemployment issues in the U.S. from a spiritual perspective. But of course unemployment and poverty are global conditions that I believe God has provided part of the answer through biblically-based entrepreneurship.

The videos below are from Cape Town 2010: The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization. One of the major focuses during this past conference was marketplace ministry. This very encouraging because that was not the case just a few years ago. Enjoy!

People at Work – Presentation 1 by Mark Greene

Focusing on ministry of full-time Christian workers has limited the church’s impact. By perpetuating the distinction between secular and sacred, disciples are not prepared to minister in the places where most people live.

People at Work – Presentation 2 by Jerry White

This segment argues that work is a major commandment in creation–that everyone has a calling to the workplace and that ministry should take place there.

People at Work – Presentation 3 by Timothy Liu

Churches need to be more focused on developing and deploying effective marketplace ministers for all walks of life.

People at Work – Presentation 4 by Mats Tunehag

Mats Tunehag examines what factors determine the success or failure of business as mission. He argues that it’s important to remember our objective and refuse to compromise on professionalism, excellence and integrity.

How do you think the church can be more effective in developing and deploying marketplace ministers?

Happy New You!

Like A Voice Crying in the Wilderness

In my last post “Shake the Dust Off Your Feet” I wrote about the need to understand who your specific target customer is when you are marketing. I’m going to continue down that marketing path in this post.

The old riddle goes, “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?” I like to think of marketing the same way, i.e. “If you spend a lot of time, energy, and ideas on a marketing strategy and no one responds immediately, did you make an impact?

Delivering a marketing message as a Christian entrepreneur is sometimes different than that of secular entrepreneurs – especially if it’s divinely-inspired. The standard of success is obedience to God, not buzz or sales. If it’s divinely-inspired, you’re not responsible for the response. You’re just responsible for delivering the message.

Some water, some plant, but God brings the increase.” ~ 1 Corinthians 3:6 (paraphrase)

This concept is sometimes very hard for the Christian entrepreneur to understand and implement, because we want to see immediate results from our marketing efforts. However, this understanding doesn’t mean you don’t apply sound strategy and execution to your marketing efforts. Early this year I wrote a series of blogs called “Slow Burn Marketing” (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3) that provides some more insights to faith-based marketing. I outlined a slightly different perspective than what’s typically seen in the business world today.

Marketing is a part art and part science – and very unpredictable. Regardless, when you do it God’s way you will have a much greater probability of success.

Shake the Dust Off Your Feet

 

"If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town." ~ Matthew 10:14

You have something important to say, but that doesn’t mean everyone is ready or willing to listen to you. Your message is not going to be received by everyone. Sometimes you have have to know when to move on in life and in business.

Here is some sound advice for your marketing efforts that will keep you from getting frustrated and upset when you’re not getting the response you expected to get from certain people…

  • “Everybody” is not your customer
  • “Anybody” is not your customer
  • “Somebody” is your customer

Identify those who identify with you. Find your somebody. They are going to fit a certain demographic, geographic, or psychographic profile. They “get” you. They easily connect with you. They want more of what you have to offer.

Even Jesus realized everyone wasn’t going to listen to his message, and he had the most important message ever! So stop casting your pearls before swing. Follow his advice and know when to move on. You will be much better off finding those who want and need to hear what you have to say.

Live Passionately!

Christians Take Ministry to Work

I have written in previous blogs about the walls between the “sacred and secular” coming down, i.e. Christians understanding that the calling to business and entrepreneurship is just as significant as the call to pastor. So I get really excited when I find more people who are coming into this recognition.

In this video, Paul Strand investigates what some people of faith are doing to bring Christ into the marketplace. Enjoy!
