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.

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
LIVE FACILITATED Sessions
Engage written content and videos at your own pace then participate in live video workshops.
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.

You’ll keep a digital journal of your experience to capture learnings you can review long after your CEE experience.
