Business Start-Up and Economic Development

Help families break the cycle of poverty by equipping them with skills to build a business. Often when we confront poverty in our local context, it’s tempting to think that pulling out our wallet will solve the issue. Yet what if we could create solutions that empower the poor to develop a new relationship with finances that set them and their families up for long term success.

Your church can become a hub for neighborhood transformation. Business development training, based on groundbreaking, proven methods out of the Chalmers Center equips local churches to offer programming that doesn’t just teach job skills, but also offers discipleship in a Godly worldview towards work and financial management.
