Paradigm Shift helps the local church to transform the lives of those who have chosen entrepreneurship as a way out of poverty, by equipping micro-entrepreneurs with business training, mentoring and discipleship.
The church identifies a Point Person, who is trained to recruit and train a group of 5 other volunteer trainers. With a target community in mind, they run an introductory One-Day Business Experience Course (once or more times), before selecting the best micro-entrepreneurs to proceed through a 9-week journey of business training and discipleship.
TO REPLICATE THIS PROJECT YOUR CHURCH WILL NEED
“It was God who placed the dream in my heart to see entrepreneurs in poor communities break free from poverty. Commissioned by my church, I was just a Christian businesswoman with a burning dream in my heart. I started meeting with entrepreneurs every Monday evening and although I wasn’t really sure what we would be able to accomplish …. And I realize, this was the birthing place of many new dreams.”
Our suite of resources helps churches with proven, best-practice ways to engage and transform their communities.
