Paradigm Shift

Paradigm Shift helps the local church to transform the lives of those who have chosen entrepreneurship as a way out of poverty, by equipping micro-entrepreneurs with business training, mentoring and discipleship.

The church identifies a Point Person, who is trained to recruit and train a group of 5 other volunteer trainers. With a target community in mind, they run an introductory One-Day Business Experience Course (once or more times), before selecting the best micro-entrepreneurs to proceed through a 9-week journey of business training and discipleship.

STEPS TO RUN THIS PROJECT
  1. Identify a Point Person (Lead Volunteer)
  2. Recruit a Volunteer Team of 6
  3. Train the Volunteer Team
  4. Invite micro entrepreneurs from the community
  5. Train micro-entrepreneurs

  • A team of six volunteers with business experience
  • A free Saturday(s)
  • A training venue
  • A second target community
  • A desire to coach entrepreneurs in small business skills
  • An ability to prayerfully disciple others in faith

“It was God who placed the dream in my heart to see entrepreneurs in poor communities break free from poverty. Commissioned by my church, I was just a Christian businesswoman with a burning dream in my heart. I started meeting with entrepreneurs every Monday evening and although I wasn’t really sure what we would be able to accomplish …. And I realize, this was the birthing place of many new dreams.”
