Business/Entrepreneurship Concentration

Applied Toward a Christian Entrepreneurship Degree

This major is designed to release the creative flow of the Holy Spirit within the student in and through business. All aspects of business development and management skills will be addressed. Business will be seen as a ministry, and the vision of creating and releasing wealth for the Kingdom of God will be explored. In this Christian entrepreneurship degree, a variety of business enterprises will be examined, including the electronic cottage, franchises, network marketing, and retail businesses. The student may select, with his school mentor, the best arrangement of courses to meet his vocational/ministerial goals.

 

The courses listed below may be taken as a certificate or applied as a major concentration toward an Associate’s, Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Doctoral degree. Additional work is required when an undergraduate-level course is taken on the graduate level. Course substitutions and combining major concentrations are possible when working toward a degree. Discuss these options with the Dean. The key is to follow God’s passion within your heart. Students in the Master’s and Doctoral programs earn approximately 30 credits for each degree from specific courses, and the remaining 10 credits by doing practical ministry work and earning “practica” credits.

 

The following courses may be purchased individually or as a total package. If purchased as a pre-paid package, the cost of tuition is reduced by 20%. Two to five courses are sent at a time, as the student requests. Prices are subject to change without notice. Payment may be made by credit card.

 

To receive a certificate a student must complete a minimum of 10 of the courses below. One of them must be Communion With God.

 

REN103 Communion With God (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$342.84

REN503 Communion With God (Graduate Level) (Course Syllabus) 4 credits $445.78
Have you ever wished you could sit down and have a long talk with the Lord? When you're worried or confused, wouldn't you love to see the situation from His perspective and hear how He wants you to respond? When things don't seem to be going your way and your prayers aren't answered the way you had hoped, wouldn't it be great to hear Him tell you where He is in the midst of it, and what He is working out in your life?

Jesus promised that "My sheep hear My voice" (Jn. 10:27). If you are one of His sheep, then He is speaking to you and you are hearing His voice! The problem is that we have not learned how to recognize His voice and differentiate it from all of the other voices that bombard our hearts and minds. This course will help you discern the voice of the Lord within your heart, clearly and consistently, leading to a deeper intimacy with Him as well as greater faith, hope and joy. Your life will be transformed!

 

BUS102 Fulfill Your Financial Destiny (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$327.80
BUS502 Fulfill Your Financial Destiny (Graduate Level) (Course Syllabus) 4 credits $416.80

This course will give you Scriptural support for the belief that God delights in the prosperity of His children (Ps. 35:27). It is His desire that we lend and not borrow. We are to be the head and not the tail, above and not underneath (Deut. 28:12,13). God Himself teaches us to profit (Is. 48:17) and has given us the power to make wealth (Deut. 8:18). Several hundred verses on silver and gold will be examined, along with a philosophy concerning money, showing that we are to create and release wealth into the kingdom of God.

 

LEA205 Creating Your Mission Statement (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$258.95
In a world in which we are daily forced to make decisions that lead us either closer to or further from our goals, no tool is as valuable in providing direction as a mission statement - a brief, succinct, and focused statement of purpose that can be used to initiate, evaluate, and refine all of life's activities. People or groups with carefully defined missions have always led and surpassed those who have none. In this course you will be guided through every step of both defining and fulfilling a mission.

 

LEA103 Gifted to Succeed (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$270.94
"To each of us grace has been given according to the measure of Christ's gift...And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers for the equipping of the saints." Do you know which of these heart motivations God has given to you? Is God asking you to express this heart motivation within or outside the structured church, or both? Which ministry or vocation is He asking you to express yourself through? What kinds of people do you need next to you to make you most effective? These questions and many others will be answered.

BUS105 Money by Design (Course Syllabus)

3 credits
$344.00
Unlike most financial curricula on the market today that are built around the “debt reduction” philosophy, which states that the only way to change your financial situation is to decrease your expenditures and debt, Money by Design introduces another solution: Increase your income! In this course you will learn the 12 biblical laws of wealth creation; the difference between riches and long-lasting wealth; how the Jewish people have prospered throughout history; why the wicked prosper; and the gates of societal influence. The overriding objective is to empower individuals toward financial success by providing proper education, established biblical principles and developing new concepts. If you allow the principles of this course to saturate your mind and heart, your life will be changed! (Pre-requisite: REN103 Communion with God)

BUS201 Business Is Ministry (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$286.97

For too long the vast majority of Christians have accepted the lie that there are those few who are called to “full-time Christian service,” by which is usually meant pastoring a church or being a full-time foreign missionary, and the “laity” who work in secular jobs to support the ministry. Working in the world has been considered second-class Christianity and not necessarily a calling from God. Certainly, the anointing of God had no place in the inherently evil world of business.
This course will explode these myths, showing you how business in itself can bring glory to God, and how the Holy Spirit wants to anoint you to influence the marketplace and change the world.

 

BUS209 Kingdom Entrepreneurs (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

Temporarily Unavailable

Christianity spreads fastest when Christians are not just proclaiming but also modeling the Gospel. In this course you will explore the thesis that globalization may be God’s way of bringing business people – perhaps the largest and most underutilized segment of the Church – back into missions. You will examine several examples of businesses whose purposes include demonstrating and proclaiming the love of Christ to a hurting world. And you will seek the Lord for your role in this revolution in missions and evangelism as you study Christian entrepreneurship.

 

LEA303 Developing the Leader Within (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$274.98

This course is designed to help you develop the attitudes, skills and character traits you will need to become the leader God has called you to be. You may need to establish new patterns of thought and action, and break old habits that have been keeping you back. If you truly devote yourself to the requirements of this course, you will be a more effective and successful leader at the end of it.

BUS301 Start & Succeed in Your Own Business (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$267.95
Millions of people have left the security of a regular paycheck from someone else to strike out on their own and fulfill their dreams. If you would like to join this courageous group, this course will teach you what you need to know to get started. Detailed instruction will be given in how to write a business plan, how to diagnose your competitive situations with reference to market, technological, and economic conditions, and set realistic production, revenue and operating goals.

 

BUS302 Anatomy of a Business Plan (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$262.95
The business that fails to plan, plans to fail. If you want to grow your business, you need an effective, up-to-date business plan. It is your key to start-up, maintaining growth, accessing financing and keeping on track. You'll get a blueprint to steer your company to success and access to capital from lenders and investors. This course is extremely practical, thorough, and easy to understand.

 

MIN211 Building Dynamic Teams (Course Syllabus)

1 credit

$125.95
"...they ordained them elders in every church…" (Acts 14:23). Biblical precedent indicates that local churches were governed by a team of elders. God never let the rulership of the body rest on the shoulders of one man, knowing that each of us has weaknesses and limitations, and that no one man can completely represent full truth, wisdom and power as Jesus did. This course will help local church leadership function more effectively as a team, honoring the gifts of all. Prerequisites: LEA103 Gifted to Succeed (required); MIN210 Five Fold Ministry Gifts (recommended). This course will be most useful if you are currently part of a leadership team.

 

BUS320 New Trends in Management (Course Syllabus)

1 credit

$104.95
Everyone manages someone, whether you are a business person, a pastor, or a homemaker. What are God's rules for successful management, which will allow the release of His blessing? We have discovered twenty biblical principles for effective management. These are being used by the most successful corporations around the world. We ground each one in Scripture and provide worksheets so you can easily evaluate your management style. May God's maximum blessing be released in our homes, churches, and businesses. Leaders manage people well.

 

BUS310 Recordkeeping for the Small Business (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$262.95
The keeping of accurate records is imperative if you are going to succeed at business. This course is designed for those who are starting from scratch and know nothing about the recordkeeping process. By the time you have finished applying the principles taught in the course, you will understand how all of the pieces fit together to develop a simple but accurate set of books that will help you see the trends that are taking place within your operation and provide you with income tax information that can be easily retrieved and verified.

 

LEA201 Creative Problem Solving (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$361.99
Spirit-born creativity is no accident; it requires purposeful activity. This study will open the doors of your understanding so that the creativity of God can flow through you continuously in ways such as you may have only dreamed. You will examine step-by-step how God progressively fills each of the five senses of your spirit with Himself, until His creative miracle is released into the natural realm.

 

COU203 Cornerstones of Communication (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$335.94
Communication is the center of all relationships, yet most of us are untaught on the dynamics of great communication skills. This course will teach you these skills. With practice, every relationship you enter into will be much more effective, including relationships with your spouse and children. Give yourself the gift of outstanding communication skills.

 

LEA310 Apprenticed to Leadership (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$271.94
Mentoring or apprenticeship was Jesus’ style of training. He committed Himself to twelve intense relationships for about a year and a half, raising up leaders after Him who turned the world upside down for His sake. In this course, we will explore the mentoring relationship from both sides: as an apprentice who is learning from a leader and as a leader who is developing his team. (It is possible and beneficial to be in both positions at the same time – continuing to grow and learn from those who are ahead of us while leading and developing others into their potential.) We will discuss what is involved in a good mentoring relationship, responsibilities of the mentor and the apprentice, how one enters and terminates such relationships, and very practical steps for developing leaders who will stand with you, help carry your load, and continue your vision after you are gone. “There is no success without a successor.”

 

LEA321 Visionary Leadership (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$257.95
Jesus' leadership approach with His "staff" ran counter to most of the management styles and techniques employed today. In this course, you will explore the three categories of strengths behind Jesus' leadership techniques: the strength of self-mastery, the strength of action, and the strength of relationships. You will learn a plan to heighten your awareness level in each category and to assist you in the process of mastering them all, which is necessary for you to become an empowered leader in this millennium.

 

BUS312 Ethical MLM (Course Syllabus)

1 credit

$127.90
This course will help you examine the field of network (multi-level, direct consumer) marketing. You will learn how to choose the best company for you to work with, and how to build an ethical MLM business. Prerequisite: BUS102 Fulfill Your Financial Destiny.

“Oh my, I am speechless...I have completed only the first several lessons in Communion With God and my life has been totally, totally transformed. He is such a wonderful, wonderful God. A few months ago I told Him I was desperate for more of Him...I had no idea His answer to my prayer would be so exceedingly abundantly above anything I could ever have imagined. My days and nights are now filled with His presence. Thank you for your service to Him, Mr. Virkler. I will be in touch as I progress through the course....”
