Entrepreneurial success looks easy. An innovative idea addresses an obvious need or injustice, and positive results spill out like coins from a slot machine. Great plans come together with minimal effort and mistakes. Charisma and ingenuity create a winning combination. But in most cases success does not occur instantly, and in fact, usually results after a series of trials by fire.

Entrepreneurs and innovators dream of new solutions to generational problems and current conundrums. An increasing number of individuals find themselves called to minister and serve in contexts without ready-made organizational support. Often their dreams languish simply because there is no clear path forward.

As ministry, entrepreneurial efforts are never merely about bringing innovative ideas to life. They arise from a sense that the Divine is nudging us to offer our gifts and service via new forms and avenues. They seek to serve God and humankind in ways that transform and improve our lives together.

With each innovative idea energy surges eager for action, yet testing the idea before moving too quickly is wise. What is my motivation? What value would this ministry serve? What issue do I hope to address and have I correctly perceived it? Like many business ventures, we seldom get it completely right the first time! Good ideas benefit from further research. Even Divine leadings benefit from testing!

How does one move from leading toward action? How does the Divine participate in the process? Can entrepreneurship and ministry be yoked without losing the integrity of either? This year’s leadership conference features eight entrepreneurial ministers who have lived with these questions and more as they completed ESR’s Entrepreneurial Ministry Certificate Program. They are eager to share their experiences as a resource to others who are interested in acting on their leadings to ministry.
