Core Focus

Discovering more of God’s Purpose for your life!              

Envision business as a transformational agent with a positive influence on the people of our world.  How do we use business to bring change and transform communities?

Participates will also discover answers to the following heart questions:  What are my gifting, talents and passions? What is the call of God for my life? How can I achieve that call? What plan do you need for that call?
