"We engage with Christian business people to encourage the vision of those in business to seek a model that honors God‘s restorative nature and work in the places we serve."

Kingdom Business

What is Kingdom Business?

Kingdom Business simply defined is Business that is aimed at advancing the Kingdom of Christ. Our purpose for Kingdom Business is to be a part of Christian owned enterprises that will be aimed at spiritual integrity, serving Christ in community and donating profits to the Great Commission through GO Ministries and its work to support Nationals in third world countries as well as the functioning poor throughout the United States. This includes enterprises that GO Ministries is a stakeholder in or is an encourager of. We desire to partner with Christ centered businesses that are:
  • Creating strong partnerships
  • Providing an instrument in the hands of God
  • Establishing a Christ centered workforce
  • Interested in supporting International Missions
All of these endeavors allow us to glorify God by our business presence, character, service, quality and integrity throughout the communities we serve and the world. By encouraging Christian business people to seek a model that honors God‘s Great Commission we believe that the talents and gifts of the entrepreneur will be funneled for God’s purposes and will allow the individual to actively and honestly seek God’s purpose and control of the enterprise.

We make GO Ministries resources available to assist in enterprise start up, as well as ongoing support both in prayer and general business advice. We are an ongoing source of encouragement and spiritual guidance. GO Ministries is a designated 501© 3 organization. For the Christian business person who is looking to declare their organization aimed at serving a Godly purpose this approach allows structure and partnership. Our resources allow us to give guidance in the areas of tax, management and world outreach. Our hope is to foster partnership between Christian business entrepreneurship and worldwide Christian ministry outreach.
