“Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.” Proverbs 15:22
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.” Ecclesiastes 4:9
“Work is worship”. This was the key message that started off our 1st Business Empowerment Circle (BEC) session for 2013.
The BEC is a network of small support groups comprising 6-8 persons who meet for the purpose of mutual learning and strengthening, to empower one another for greater impact in the marketplace. Groups are led by facilitators which meet once a month, interspersed by larger gatherings where all BEC groups and other believers in the marketplace come together on a quarterly basis.
There will be a total of 7 sessions in this cycle, from February to November 2013. Every session will last between 1.5 to 2 hours and will discuss practical business issues, including a time for prayer. Discussions will be based on a topic brief that will be e-mailed to group members ahead of each session.
The following topics have been planned for this cycle:
Session 1. Destiny in the Marketplace: Finding Meaning & Purpose in my Work (Completed)
Session 2. The Joseph Experience: How to succeed in a Hostile & Evil Environment (Completed)
Session 3. The Virtue of Patience: Waiting on the Lord for a Business Breakthrough
Session 4. Worship: The Foundation for Business Success
Session 5. Our Authority over our Finances: Purpose of Prosperity
Session 6. Sowing & Reaping: Walking in Obedience
Session 7. Servant Leadership: Bringing out the Best in People
Registration for this cycle has closed. Watch this space for updates on the next cycle towards the end of the year, subject to the Lord’s direction.
Blessings to you.
