Empowering the Next Generation @ Nehemiah Week 2018
Studies show that entrepreneurs who are part of the community and continue to engage in ongoing training and coaching have a greater chance of success. However success is not just about ongoing education but intentional connections with like minded people. Who you are today is a product of the people you engage with, and the active learning opportunities you take advantage of.

Nehemiah Project Mexico Hosts Its Inaugural Nehemiah Week Mexico
Nehemiah Project Mexico recently organized its inaugural Nehemiah Week Mexico from the 25th June – 30th June 2018 at the Simon Bolivar University, Mexico City. Led by Country Partner René Villar and Executive Director Penelope Bravo, the event provided a platform for local churches and business owners to experience several exciting courses that demonstrated various opportunities available for them to build Kingdom focused enterprises in Mexico.
One message came through loud and clear during the course of the conference:
Mexico is open for business, and they have a deep desire to do business according to Kingdom principles. The impact of the conference was so profound seeing that everyone agreed in unison that no one will be missing Nehemiah Week Mexico 2019!
Here are some of the highlights of the activities held:
Serve with Love – Mission in Action is an 8-hour interactive workshop based on the book, Serve with Love, to help individuals and organizations understand the power of a transformative mission statement through real life case studies and hands-on activities. The classes were led by author and NPIM Board Member, Tom Mears and his daughter Jennifer Mears with Patrice Tsague. Business and Church leaders came individually or brought their leadership teams to further strengthen their mission and purpose to serve the community. Certificates will be presented to the individuals and businesses who complete their action plans within the next 30 days. Subsequently, at the Nehemiah Week International, the Serve with Love Award and a business investment prize gift of $1000 will be presented to the business or church who best meets their goals.
The BE One Day Experience: Developing a Growth Strategy gave entrepreneurs an opportunity to learn how to identify growth opportunities, forecast growth, and how to develop a growth strategy. Patrice Tsague led them through this intensive one-day program.
Kingdom Business Tour is the best way to see how Biblical Entrepreneurship is effective in the marketplace. We visited the law firm of Carols Rojas Colomenero, Tagata Business Services, Oftalmologik Ophthalmology Group hosted by owner Esther Venegas, and Brave Heart Creative. Each business shared how the BE program helped them in applying the right principles and practices to grow their business, but mostly on how important the planning process was in developing and following critical goals to expand their business.
The Business Plan Competition was held on Thursday. This winner of this competition will represent Mexico at the International Business Plan Competition in Orlando, Florida this coming September. Participants included entrepreneurs with businesses ranging from book publications, small people custom clothing, fruit dehydration, and commercial videography. Nalleli Peres Mercado, of Grupo Bani emerged as the grand winner. Her business supplies dried fruit products.
The conference concluded on Friday with the topic “Empowering the Next Generation” that featured keynote speakers Rene Villar, Patrice Tsague, Pastor Ofir Gonzalez, Penelope Bravo, and Tom Mears. Worship music was provided by a group of local young believers who meet regularly to study the holy word and worship together.
Nehemiah Week Mexico 2019 will be held early June 2019. Mark your calendars because this will be an event that you don’t want to miss! Great food, warm and welcoming company but most of all, a unique opportunity to participate in expanding the Kingdom of God.
