GROUND YOUR WORK AND LEADERSHIP
In God's original design
and purpose for business.
It is estimated that during the work week in the United States, over 55% of our waking hours are spent in a workplace environment. For many, work has little connection with their faith, but at Kingdom Business Leaders we believe faith is relevant to everyday life, including how you run and lead your business.
Kingdom Business Leaders is a church-based program providing relevant curricula, leveraging innovative technology, and cultivating authentic relationships in a safe and protected environment. We help business leaders ground their work and leadership in God’s original design and purpose for business.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you.
Kingdom Business Leaders is a comprehensive ministry for discipling business leaders through four key strategies.
Members of Kingdom Business Leaders (KBL) are invited to attend all of our events. These events are designed to inspire and equip business leaders with greater skills and knowledge, while offering them an opportunity to fellowship with like-minded people.
KBL events are typically held 2-4 times per year during breakfast or lunch and feature a keynote guest speaker, Q&A, small group discussion, and activation. The event speakers are business leaders from a variety of business backgrounds that share their professional experiences and how they live out their faith in the marketplace.
Business Owner Groups
Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.
Many Christian business owners feel isolated in business. They need a safe, confidential environment to build authentic peer relationships and share personal, professional, and spiritual challenges. Our groups provide a place for men and women to grow in their walks with God and integrate faith into every area of their lives. These groups also allow them to solicit candid feedback, work through organizational issues, and make informed decisions.
Kingdom Business Leader groups are for business owners only at this time. The groups are typically made up of 8-12 people (although sometimes there are smaller groups of 3-4 people) with similar levels of business and leadership experience. The groups meet on a regular basis – usually two hours twice a month – with a trained facilitator. During group meetings group members review a lesson, discuss application, review homework, have Q&A, and pray. All aspects of the groups pillar are online.

The heart of Kingdom Business Leaders is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who are called to work in the marketplace. We accomplish this by offering training classes, seminars, webinars, tool days, etc. on relevant business, personal, and spiritual topics. This training is led by subject matter experts to equip business leaders to increase their faith and be led by the Holy Spirit and teach them how to apply biblical principles to their businesses and lives.
There are hundreds of resources published for business leaders every year, ranging from books to webinars to business courses. Many people do not have time to figure out which resources are the best ones. We take all the guess work out of the process by giving Kingdom Business Leaders’ members access to an extensive library of world-class business resources, all carefully selected to foster personal, professional, and spiritual growth and help them develop into the leader God has called them to be.
