Our Process:

We want to fill you with Kingdom power to possess the market place for Jesus Christ.  Such power will be imparted to you during monthly vision calls with Apostle Chris.  We want you to be fully equipped with knowledge which is power to be confident that you will succeed in business.  Please keep in mind that this is a process, and all results will vary from each individual.  Stay prayerful through the process, you will make it!

Our Prerequisite:

We stress that you make every effort to participate on the monthly vision calls.  That is the only way you will be able to fill in your answer sheet correctly and complete your monthly assignments.  We also require that your tuition be paid in full by the 10th month of the year or you will not graduate.

Final Word:

One of the reasons God wants you to be in Business is to extend His Kingdom to the earth.  One of the fastest ways to do this is by owning your own business.  Being a man or woman of excellence, character and influence you will shift the way businesses are viewed by the consumer. 

It is important for God’s rule to be extended into the market place as it is in the church.  God today is raising up leaders around the world who are anointed to start and maintain prosperous businesses in order to support the work of the Kingdom around the globe. You will enjoy the freedom of extending God’s Kingdom rule through your business stewardship on the earth as you maintain a mind-set of Kingdom.  Welcome Aboard!
