SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Aug. 8 /Christian Newswire/ -- More than a thousand participants are registered to attend Vision Forum Ministries’ first-ever Entrepreneurial Bootcamp for Christian Families to be held at the Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas on August 10-12, 2006. The mission for the bootcamp is to cast a vision for entrepreneurship that highlights the testimony of independent businessmen who embrace biblical principles and include their families in their work.
“It has long been our dream to create an innovative training academy to equip families with biblical tools for business success,” explained Doug Phillips, founder of Vision Forum Ministries. “Now that we have the team and the resources to do this, we are pleased to inaugurate the Entrepreneurial Bootcamp for Christian Families.”
Featured speakers at the Entrepreneurial Bootcamp will include Dr. James Leininger, founder of Kinetic Concepts, Inc.; Nick Logan, CEO of Cornerstone Bancard; Joel Salatin, agriculturalist and founder of Polyface, Inc.; Wade Myers, CEO of RealManage; and Arnold Pent III, partner in Pent Energy LLC.
“Our goal with the Entrepreneurial Bootcamp is to inspire Christians to apply biblical principles of family life to the twenty-first century work environment,” remarked Phillips. “Whether a family’s business idea involves agriculture or e-commerce, real estate development or door-to-door sales, we seek to encourage families to pursue creative business solutions which foster freedom in Christ and multi-generational faithfulness.”
“Many men find themselves caught in a corporate culture at odds with biblical values,” continued Phillips. “They are looking for a fresh start to provide for their loved ones in a way that builds up, not breaks down, their family. We are seeking to communicate hope to such men and their families by offering practical teaching that explores various business models in light of God’s Word.”
Session topics will include: “The Rebirth of Family-Friendly Christian Entrepreneurship, “Creative Models for Raising Capital Without Debt Bondage,” How to Cultivate an Entrepreneurial Spirit with Your Children,” “Building An E-Commerce Business,”“Top Ten Legal Issues Every Family Entrepreneur Needs to Understand,” “A Biblical Model for Successful Agrarian Entrepreneurship,” and “A Christian Entrepreneurial Vision for Marketing and Retailing,” among others.
Bootcamp passes are $125 for adults, $85 for students. A Family Pass is $450. Space is limited. For more information on the Entrepreneurial Bootcamp for Christian Families,visit: http://www.visionforumministries.org/events/eb/001/
