3 Ways Entrepreneurship Education Can Elevate Economically-Challenged Communities

I have believed for a long time that entrepreneurship education could be used as a strategic empowerment tool to lift up those in poverty-stricken communities. I’m very excited to see social entrepreneurship strategies being used all over the world to elevate people and communities out of their financial and social distress. Unfortunately, I don’t often see the same entrepreneurial energy and intentionality utilized here in the United States to help those who are challenged will lack of access to resources and tools that can help create new avenues of economic opportunity.

Entrepreneurship education is just as valid a poverty-smashing solution in urban communities in the U.S. as they are in slums in India or villages in Africa. Even more, when entrepreneurship education is paired with Biblical principles, you have the makings of people who are not just skilled as businesspeople, they also develop the morals and character to operate a business that’s profitable and positively impacts others.

Here are three practical ways entrepreneurship education can elevate economically-challenged communities:

  1. Sense of Ownership: Embedded within an entrepreneurial mindset is a sense of ownership. Entrepreneurs who operate businesses within a community usually have a heightened desire to take accountability for what happens in that community, because they know they need that community to succeed if their business is going to be sustainable.
  2. Sense of Purpose: Without a revelation of their purpose and significance, people cast off restraint and run wild (Proverbs 29:18 NIV). When people have no sense of purpose, they lose hope and stop caring about themselves and the people around them. Entrepreneurship education helps ignite the purpose in people to pursue something greater than what they may see around them everyday. Entrepreneurship education is an incredible platform to transport people from where they are to their God-ordained destiny.
  3. Creative Energy: People in poverty-stricken areas don’t lack creativity, they are just using their creative abilities far below the purpose for which God created them. Entrepreneurship empowerment can help people use their ingenuity beyond just basic survival or even criminal pursuits. Creative energy that wasn’t being used previously or being used for the wrong things are now channeled in a positive, beneficial direction for themselves and others.

We’re on a mission to stimulate the creation of 1 million jobs. If you want to learn more about how we’re using entrepreneurship education to elevate urban and rural communities, check out The (Un)Employment Alternative. We’re raising money right now to bring entrepreneurship education to Cedartown, GA so we can create jobs, restore hope, and revitalize that community. We need your help.

Forsaking All by Patrice Tsague

So when they had brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed Him. ~ Luke 5:11

by Patrice Tsague

Have you really given it all up for Christ? Are you operating your business on biblical principles out of Christian duty or because you recognize that it is God’s business? What else are you holding back from the Lord?

There is a difference between doing things for God and letting God do things through you, seeing Him as Savior and seeing Him as Lord. In Luke chapter 5, Jesus gets into the boat of Peter the fisherman to preach the Gospel. Jesus recognized that the businessman, whose boat He was using, had caught nothing all night. Once He completed His message he turned to Peter and gave him some fishing tips. Jesus’ instruction probably produced the greatest one time fishing harvest that Peter and his business partners had ever experienced. Moved by this experience, Peter recognized that the man he was dealing with was the Lord. Once Peter acknowledged Jesus as his savior, Jesus speaks destiny into Peter’s life, “from now on I will make you a fisher of man”. Without hesitation, Peter and his partners forsake all and follow Jesus. They make Him their Lord.

Have you had a marketplace experience with Jesus? Beyond Him being the Savior of your soul, have you made Him the Lord of your life and business?

In contrast to Peter and his partners’ response, Matthew 19:16-22 tells the story of a rich young ruler who comes to Jesus with a request for what he must do to obtain eternal life. Jesus’ response is that he must obey the commandments. The rich young ruler tells Jesus that he has done all that from the time of his youth. Jesus instructs him to forsake all and follow Him, but the rich young ruler goes away saddened because he feels he has too much to lose.

What was the difference between the rich young ruler and Peter and his partners? Why was Peter (and his partners) quick to forsake all, while the rich young ruler was saddened by the thought of forsaking all?

It is easy for us to think that once we put on “the kingdom business label” and take a Biblical Entrepreneurship class we are right with God and can receive His blessing, but God is looking for more than just labels. He is looking for us to follow Him and surrender all for His sake. He wants us to let Him take the wheel of our life and our business.

Like the rich young ruler, you may have done all that is required in the law since you committed your life and business to Him, but have you truly surrendered your life and business to Him? Evaluate yourself and your business today. Ask the Lord to show you the areas of your life that you still need to forsake for His namesake.

Strengthen Yourself in the Lord by Patrice Tsague

…but David strengthened himself in the Lord his God. ~ 1 Samuel 30:6

by Patrice Tsague

Have you ever faced personal tragedy or a business loss that led you into great distress and even depression? Are you going through one right now? Where do you go when you feel overwhelmed by the challenges of life and business?

In I Samuel 30, David, who will soon become the second king of Israel, is faced with a personal tragedy that could lead to his personal army turning against him.  He has just been rejected by the Philistines (I Samuel 29) and as he returns to Ziklag where his family, the families of his personal army, and their entire provision was based, he discovers that the place has been burned and their family members, including his two wives, have been taken captive by the Amalekites. David is in great distress, not just because of the loss, but because his people want to take it out on him.  Although angry and in great distress, David does not take the matter into his own hands but rather strengthens himself in the Lord.

To strengthen yourself in the Lord is to find strength in God’s word and His promises. There are times when everyone seems to turn against you and there seems to be no one or no where to turn to, but to the Lord.  When everything seems to fall apart find strength in the Lord.  Allow His word and promises to revive your soul and spirit.  Meditate upon His goodness, mercy, power and faithfulness.  What challenges are you facing today?   Consider the following scriptures as you encourage yourself in the Lord today.

“I will lift up my eyes to the hills – from whence comes my help?  My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade at your right hand.  The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore.” Psalm 121

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;  and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” Psalm 23

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and depart from evil.  It will be health to your flesh,and strength to your bones. Honor the LORD with your possessions, And with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine.  my son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD, nor detest His correction; for whom the LORD loves He corrects, just as a father the son in whom he delights.” Proverbs 3:5-12

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.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

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!

Benefits of Pleasing God by Patrice Tsague


When a man’s ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
~ Proverbs 16:7

by Patrice Tsague

How would you like to make your worst enemy live at peace with you? Your enemy could be an in law, a competitor, a neighbor; anyone whom you have done your best to be kind to, but for some reason, no matter what you do, he or she seems to get more enraged with you. Your enemy may be determined to undermine you. No matter what you do, the person seems to be unsatisfied; it seems that his or her satisfaction will be to see you hurt or non-existent.

Romans 12:18 states, “if it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.” This suggests that unfortunately no matter how hard you try, being at peace with all is in part dependent upon the other person’s willingness to cooperate. What do we then do when the other person is not willing to cooperate? In such instances, we should focus our attention on pleasing God and allow Him to fight our battles for us.

Pleasing God has many benefits, which include:

  • He will give you the desires of your heart
  • He will give you eternal life
  • He will provide for you
  • He will cause you to live at peace with your enemies
  • And much more

Let us focus on the aspect of being at peace with our enemies. Why is this benefit so important for the Biblical Entrepreneur? Our enemies can be a distraction, they can be a temptation, and they can take us off our game. No matter how spiritual you are, an enemy who is persistent may eventually wear on you because he may employ ungodly methods against you while you are limited to only using strategies that honor the Lord in your dealings with him. Unfortunately, when some of us are fed up, we take matters into our own hands so we are not perceived as being a weak Christian. This is unacceptable because when we take matters into our own hands, we fight battles ourselves when the Bible states that “the battle is not ours it is the Lord’s” (I Samuel 17:47).

When we have done all we can to make peace with our enemies to no avail, let us focus our energies on pleasing the Lord with all of our hearts so He may fight our battles. Who have you been trying to make peace with to no avail? Turn your focus on pleasing God and watch Him supernaturally turn their hearts around.
