Raising up the Next Generation of Biblical Entrepreneurs
There is no doubt that today’s tweens and teens are faced with situations and challenges that we never imagined were real. I was recently reflecting about how my children are more knowledgeable than I was, at their age, on a range of subjects. A strong conviction rose up within me about how I must be intentional with raising my own children. I am doing my best to be aware of teaching moments, providing opportunity for them to share their hearts and thoughts on issues in a safe, non-confrontational, and loving place. At the same time, as I lead them toward our Heavenly Father’s heart, it is vital that I carefully yet uncompromisingly share God’s unchanging truth, His passionate unconditional love for all people, and his compassion toward all of us.
As we raise up leaders for future generations, it is vital that we help them discover their passion, purpose, and a plan on how to live it out in a way that brings glory to God and contributes to the community around them. It is important that we create a place and space for them to discover their God designed identity, their God given talents, and encourage them to dream big God-sized dreams. Kids don’t have to wait until they are adults to become a Biblical Entrepreneur or leader; they can begin their journey now!
We are thrilled to offer Young Biblical Entrepreneurship through our Nehemiah Entrepreneurship Institute. We have both a self-study with cohort (group coaching) and self-study with individual coaching. Our first cohort begins September 5th. We have a limited number of partial scholarships available for our first cohort launch. Click here to register for YBE I Cohort .
We also launched a fundraising campaign to provide an opportunity for people to partner with us as we launch YBE. We are need of donations to finish purchasing supplies, offer scholarships, and school sponsorships. I invite you to join my team in raising awareness and funds to empower our tweens & teens to become the leaders God designed them to be. You are welcome to click here to donate or start your own team.
