How does someone make a positive impact on the economics and spiritual welfare of Haiti? One entrepreneur at a time! This Tuesday October 7, Jerome Leonard, Area Director for the Nehemiah Project International Ministries, will provide his viewpoint on the launch of Biblical Entrepreneurship training in Haiti in July earlier this year. Over a week’s time, Jerome and other Nehemiah Project team members trained 150 entrepreneurs in BE I – Principles of Biblical Entrepreneurship in three cities, making a positive and lasting impact for God’s Kingdom.
Jerome will also provide an overview of the life-impacting content of Principles of Biblical Entrepreneurship (BE I) being offered by Nehemiah Project on October 16 – 17, 2014 at Kaplan University here in Montgomery County. BE I is part of the Biblical Entrepreneurship Certificate Course, a three-part comprehensive business discipleship curriculum for Christian business owners and individuals desiring to start and operate a business based on biblical principles.
Please join the Christian Businessmen’s Connection (CBMC) of Montgomery County on Tuesday, October 7, in the Community Room at the Einstein Bagel on Firstfield Road & Quince Orchard Blvd in Gaithersburg. Our meeting time starts at 7:00 AM and ends by 8:00 AM sharp, but we request that you arrive by 6:45 AM to get your bagel & coffee and spend time getting to know each other.
