“In a faster-than-ever evolving playing field with no boundaries, with good reports one day and foreboding forecasts the next, the business arena is certainly not for the faint-hearted. How do we remain steadfast in God’s everlasting Word in an ever changing environment? How do we execute marketplace transactions God’s way and ensure we not only start well, but finish well?
The Business Empowerment Circle (BEC) was created for this very purpose. With the Holy Spirit as our Counsellor, and fellow marketplace leaders providing support one to the other, we can not only survive but thrive!
BEC which started in 2012 is a network of small support groups led by experienced facilitators. Groups will meet once a month, interspersed by larger gatherings where all BEC groups and other believers in the marketplace come together. There will be a total of 7 sessions for BEC 2015, beginning from March to October 2015.
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 which will be e-mailed to participants ahead of each session for self preparation.
Marketplace Discipleship Series III will cover the topic: GOD’S LEADERS.
God calls every believer to be a leader in the marketplace, in the workplace and in the home. Being God’s leader is more than just being a boss or having a leadership position or appointment. Jesus had commanded every believer to be salt and light. As salt and light, a believer brings godly change and transformation to the people around him or her. Godly leadership is influence. It is a calling which every Christian must wholeheartedly embrace.
To learn leadership, we do not need to look to the world of business or politics. The best source of leadership teaching is the Bible. The leadership principles in the Bible still holds true for us today, and by understanding and applying these principles we will make positive changes to our lives and our development as spiritual leaders in the marketplace and workplace.
Over 7 sessions, we will examine and discuss key leadership lessons which we can learn from 7 of God’s great leaders.
Session 1. JESUS: THE ULTIMATE LEADER (Mar)
Session 2. ABRAHAM: THE LEADER WITH GOD’S VISION (Apr)
Session 3. MOSES: THE UNEXPECTED LEADER (May)
Session 4. JOSHUA: THE LEADER WITH INFLUENCE (Jun)
Session 5. DAVID: THE LEADER AFTER GOD’S HEART (Jul)
