We Take A Christian Entrepreneurship Approach To Helping Individuals Climb Out Of Poverty
Toben Ministries is my own personal ministry developed through my walk with God over the past few years. Through this journey, one of the biggest realizations has been that it's not all about me and it never was. With this ministry, my goal is to use the gifts and blessings God has given me to bring positive change to the lives of those individuals "in need" whom God brings into my life. With that in mind... We believe entrepreneurship is the most effective way to fight poverty. God does not want you to struggle financially through life. He did not call us to be victims of circumstance. He calls us to grow closer to Him by courageously working through our dilemmas. He wants us to prosper, to be valuable leaders, and to serve as models to help others... We want to help you achieve this goal through owning and operating your own small business.
Our Christian Entrepreneurship Mentoring is a "FREE" one-on-one relational experience in which one person empowers another person by investing their God-given wisdom and resources. The survival rate of new businesses is understandably intimidating to entrepreneurs, but those numbers can change drastically when you add a mentor to the equation. According to a survey by The UPS Store, 70 percent of mentored businesses survive more than five years. That's double the rate of businesses who choose not to have a mentor.
New small business owners often lack one fundamental thing -- experience. It takes years upon years, and sometimes lots of money, to gain the business experience to run a successful company. Mentors give you the opportunity to draw on that experience right away -- and as previously mentioned, our Christian Entrepreneurship Mentoring is FREE!
Work and worship shouldn't be divided. In the same way people are called to church ministry or social justice work, people are called by God to business. We don't shy away from this belief as our calling and we actively partner with those who believe the same. There are numerous small businesses that can be started for very little money. We want to teach you how to start, operate, and market one of these businesses and incorporate God's Biblical teachings into the business. When you integrate God’s principles with your unique talents, skills, and character, you create a powerful partnership for being successful in the world without becoming of the world. We are mentoring you on how to "Partner With God" to become financially self sufficient. It won't be easy but over time and through lots of grueling hard work we believe we can help.
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future"
