Our Leadership Our Partners

Philanthropreneurship  fə-’lan-thrə-prə-’nər-ship

The act of combining generosity, innovation, risk, collaboration and sustainability

Philanthropreneurship explores the dynamics of creative philanthropy, and how its practice can catalyze entrepreneurialism, innovation and cross-sector collaboration to make gains in the fight against the global challenges of poverty.  It is the bringing together of philanthropy, development, academia, government and the private sector to achieve social impact, ensure sustainability and deliver scalable progress for communities around the world to create their own economy.

  • We are a Christ-centric organization in which every individual is important. God calls us to help the poor escape the ravages of material poverty.

  • Freedom is a right of all people globally; this includes the freedom to worship God and to attain individual economic success.
  • We believe in Philanthropreneurship where Philanthropy and Entrepreneurship unite to change underdeveloped communities. We will partner with communities to create holistic and sustainable development.
  • Every individual can develop creative solutions to poverty. They have the capacity to successfully overcome difficulties in their circumstances and become prosperous.
  • Providing people with entrepreneurial guidance and investment funding can give them the impetus to create their path to economic success.
  • As people in poor communities move out of poverty through their own initiatives, they will improve not just their lives, but the lives of all within their larger community (region, country, etc.).

Our Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17.
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; Ephesians 4:4-6.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. Matthew 1:23; John 1:1-4 and 1:29; Acts 1:11 and 2:22-24; Romans 8:34; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4 and 4:15.
  • We believe that all men everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit. Luke 24:46-47; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23; 2 Corinthians 5:10-11; Ephesians 1:7 and 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life. John 3:5-8; Acts 1:8 and 4:31; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16-18; Ephesians 6:12; Colossians 2:6-10.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment. 1 Corinthians 15:51-57; Revelation 20:11-15.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church. 1 Corinthians 12:12, 27; Ephesians 1:22-23.
  • We believe that the ministry of evangelism and discipleship is a responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ. Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15; 1 Peter 3:15.
  • We believe God’s plan for human sexuality is to be expressed only within the context of marriage, that God created man and woman as unique biological persons made to complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female. Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5-6; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9.
  • We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of evangelism. Matthew 9:35-38; 22:37-39, and 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15 and 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10; Colossians 2:6-10; 1 Peter 3:15.
  • We believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; and that we must have concern for the physical and spiritual needs of our fellow men.Psalm 139:13; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 22:37-39; Romans 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10.
