Fund Your Mission
increase your Impact
Learn the skills and tools you need to lead forward!
Church Economics & Entrepreneurship is a training program that equips you to leverage existing assets, bless your community, and generate sustainable income.
The Mission of
the church is clear.
“Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
Funding it is
80% of Christians give just 2% of their income to the church.
17% of Christians say they tithe but only 5% actually tithe.
The average adult attending church contributes $17 a week.
What if you could find new revenue streams that also helped you accomplish the mission?
Church Economics & Entrepreneurship equips church leaders to…
Rethink the Status Quo
Rethink the longstanding church assumptions around funding and embrace more biblical perspectives of church and business.

Take inventory of the assets God’s already given your congregations and how you can better steward it for greater impact!
Lead through shared vision

Fund and accomplish your mission

Cee is more than training…
It is a community of changemakers.
Leading a church or Christian ministry through a necessary paradigm shift can be lonely and exhausting. That’s why we’ve designed CEE to be experienced in community.
As part of a CEE learning cohort (5-7 churches), your 3-person team will interact with entrepreneurial leaders and experienced mentors on a weekly basis. In addition to the practical aspects of the program, you’ll benefit from these relationships of mutual encouragement, peer learning, and collective accountability.
Four distinct Tracks.

Unique hybrid learning
Online learning is often frustrating and stale. Access to videos and written content must be navigated without assistance. Watching hours of live teaching can be overwhelming, without anyone else to help you process or activate learning.
To overcome these obstacles, CEE training offers a unique hybrid solution, combining best practices of asynchronous learning with live workshops that focus on personal interaction and effective application of lessons learned.
Six-Part Learning Framework
Engage written content and videos at your own pace then participate in a weekly live video workshop.
Using CEE worksheets and resources, you’ll quickly put to practice the skills and mindsets you’re learning.
You’ll get to know the needs and opportunities of your community by engaging them regularly along the journey.
You and your cohort peers will provide one another with regular feedback and encouragement.
Explore business model concepts and discover your church’s opportunity.
You’ll keep a digital journal of your experience to capture learnings you can review long after your CEE experience.
