God had endowed each of us with different “gifts”!

Knowing your giftedness can enable you to work with God to manage your business, career, employees, or team members in a healthy and thriving manner and with the added benefit of making your work both enjoyable and rewarding.

As Christian leaders in business,  we will not venture anywhere unaffected by our conviction to follow Jesus Christ and bear witness to those around us that we were each created with a purpose. We are called by God as ambassadors of our faith through each moment of our lives, our careers and in business.

These workshops/retreats will help you thrive as a leader in business to bring your team in your business or in the company you are working closer to the Lord and in line with your mission and vision.

“So he shepherded them according to the integrity of his heart, And guided them with his skillful hands”

Psalm 78:72 (NIV)
