Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to see all local ministries and churches be supported locally by locals.

1) Provide Biblically-based educational resources for entrepreneurs.
2) Partner with local believers who share our vision; enabling them, through training and education, to conduct profitable business and support church and ministry.
3) Train and work with partner churches and missionaries to engage their members and communities using our resources.
4) Empower partners who desire to financially support our vision.

We are business people who are passionate about learning and working cross-culturally to help struggling business people and entrepreneurs, especially in developing economies.

We have a number of entrepreneurs engaging in our training programs both virtually and in person to improve their businesses through strategic planning and analysis. In addition to entrepreneurs, many in the community are taking our other training to evaluate their personal finances and set savings goals. We plan to continue to expand this program here in Trujillo, Peru, and God-willing to other parts of Peru. Our big goal is to eventually be helping communities throughout Latin America!
