A School for KINGDOM Education
“Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you."
Ministry isn’t restricted to an elite few. All believers have been called by God to share the gospel and make disciples. For those of us who spend most of our lives at work, God has called us to carry out His mission from our office desks, board rooms, lunch tables and work areas. Join Us to learn how you can let your work be your worship.
Our mission is to “Go where no one else will go and do what no one else will do” ‑ that’s the mandate from God that our ministry has.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU AND I DECIDE IT’S TIME TO GO WHERE NO ONE ELSE WILL GO AND DO WHAT NO ONE ELSE WILL DO? TO GO TO THE FATHERLESS, THE WIDOWED, THE STRANGER, THE UNHEARD, THE UNSEEN, TO THOSE OVERSEAS AND THOSE ACROSS OUR STREETS, TO OUR BROTHER, TO OUR SISTER? WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE SHARE LOVE AND OUR CHRIST.

What IS Marketplace Ministry?
One website defined marketplace ministry as, “The directing of evangelism and other Christian activities toward the secular marketplace.” I think the simplest definition is to be a disciple and witness for Christ in and through your work or business. A similar approach is having the attitude of being a full time minister in the workplace.
In a recent post, one of my readers sent me a comment that said my description of a Christian business sounded just like a description of the daily life of a normal Christian. I told him he was right…taking your faith to work should look exactly like what you do with your faith when you are in church or trying to reach others for Jesus outside of work.
Location is the only difference.
Why Is It Critical?
Folks, there are many reasons why marketplace ministry is critical. First of all, in the secular marketplace, the majority of the people you work with are lost and need Jesus. You will interact with many who will never darken the door of a church. Because they are on their own turf in the marketplace, they are relaxed and not spiritually on guard like they would be if you forced them into a church setting.
Not only are they more comfortable, but due to your relationship with them, you can have more influence on them than your pastor can. They trust you. They feel it is his “job” to push them toward God. With you, it is different in their eyes.
My prayer is that you recognize where God has placed you in work & business and what He expects as a result of your efforts there. He is not going to grade you on your work & business success as the world does. Instead, God is looking for the eternal impact you will have as a Christian business owner or worker.
Commit right now to run your work & business with an eternal perspective. Commit to making an eternal impact on everyone you meet through your work & business dealings. Commit that you will no longer attempt to separate your work & business life from your spiritual life – instead acknowledging they are one and the same!

Enjoy Life More by Continuing to Grow
As a Christian, you shouldn’t simply maintain the faith you’ve developed in the past. You must keep growing in your relationship with God. You can’t afford to get so busy with the mundane affairs of day-to-day living that you get complacent. That only leaves you vulnerable to discouragement, fear and complacency. Instead, dive deeper into your Bible study. You can do this by joining an Academy and study with like-minded believers

COURAGE FOR THE VISION
READ NEHEMIAH 1:1 THROUGH 3:32; JOHN 15:18 THROUGH 16:11
Nehemiah was burdened about the situation in Jerusalem. Jewish people returning from exile found their city in bad shape and a dangerous place to stay. So Nehemiah, a Jewish man in exile himself, prayed about the problem as he served as cupbearer to the king.
The king noticed that Nehemiah was distracted.
The king said to me, “What is it you want?” Then I prayed to the God of heaven, and I answered the king (Nehemiah 2:4–5).
Nehemiah told the king that he wanted time off, safe travel, and help in getting lumber to rebuild. He boldly told the king what he needed to fulfill his vision. The king not only granted his wishes, but also sent members of the army and cavalry with him. Nehemiah had the courage to ask the king for help, and he received even more than he requested.
Challenge for Today: Do you have a vision from the Lord or a mission for Him? Don’t be shy. When you have the opportunity, boldly ask for help.

COME GROW WITH DIANE
To bring people into relationship with Christ and help them reach spiritual maturity.
To effectively glorify God through the way we conduct ourselves, teaching others to do the same.
…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…
Have you always longed to live a life that’s beyond the ordinary? Well, you can. You can live in the realm of the extraordinary and even the impossible by the power of the Holy Spirit when you keep your eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith!
The disciple Peter was able to walk on water as long as his eyes were on Jesus. Remember that Peter was just an ordinary man like you and me. But as long as he looked to Jesus, the Holy Spirit was able to work and Peter could do the impossible. And he was doing fine until he took his eyes off Jesus and considered the boisterous wind (Matthew 14:30). The devil must have whispered in his ear, “You’re not supposed to be walking on water. Don’t you know that? Look at the huge waves. Feel the strong wind. You are going to drown!” And the moment Peter took his eyes off Jesus and looked at his natural circumstances, logic took over and told him that he could not walk on water. That’s when he began to sink.
Beloved, realize that the Spirit of God works to the measure you keep your eyes on Jesus. Today, if you’re being rocked by 10-foot waves of sickness, debt or depression, don’t fix your eyes on the storm. Keep your eyes instead on the Lord. As you meditate on His glory and grace, faith will arise. And you will see His Spirit empower you with His wisdom, His strength and His limitless resources to walk in victory over every single storm!

The 7 Mountains of Influence
Our desire is to see the seven mountains of culture submitted to God's ways and purposes.
The Seven Mountains of Societal Influence
In 1975, Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade and Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth With a Mission(YWAM), developed a God-given, world-changing strategy. Their mandate: Bring Godly change to a nation by reaching its seven spheres, or mountains, of societal influence.
They concluded that in order to truly transform any nation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, these seven facets of society must be reached: Religion, Family,Education, Government, Media, Arts & Entertainment and Business.
Every society has some type of belief in a superior being or beings. In the east, religions tend to be polytheistic (many gods) or outright idolatrous (such as Hinduism and Buddhism). Although these religions are thousands of years old, they nonetheless continue to thrive today. In the west, Christianity and Catholicism are predominant, but postmodern views are increasingly being accepted and the concept of God is being rejected. This is especially true in Europe.
The Christian Church is described in the Greek language as the ecclesia. Literally translated, the word ecclesia means “governing body.” Although we don’t condone theocracies, this translation suggests that the Church should have great influence in all other spheres that make up a society. With a plethora of categorized religions around the world, it’s the Church’s responsibility to reach the lost with the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ, and expand the Kingdom in ministerial efforts, both nationally and internationally.
In any functional society, the family is the “building block” of the community. Throughout the Bible, you will find familial examples that portray how we ought to live our lives today. God desires that men, women, and children within a family be united as one in His love. After all, He is the ultimate Father (Romans 8:14-17).
The families of the United States have been under constant and prolonged attack. Today, the assailants are fatherlessness, divorce (50% rate in secular and Christian marriages), abuse, homosexual marriage, pornography, and other negative influences have brought great dysfunction to American life. God is calling fathers and mothers (both spiritual and biological) to bring order to the chaos that the enemy has unleashed against families in America. He also wants to bring healing to marriages and relationships within families in order to maintain a moral foundation for children in the future to stand upon.
At one time the education system of America unapologetically incorporated the Bible, prayer to the God of the Bible, and biblical values in every aspect of school life. Not coincidentally, this system produced a people that produced the most powerful and prosperous nation the earth has ever seen.
Now, the children of our nation are inundated with liberal ideologies, atheistic teaching and postmodern principles in our public schools and in most universities (including many Christian institutions). Put simply; they are being indoctrinated with often false, biased and anti-biblical information.
A re-introduction of biblical truth and Bible-centric values is the key to renewal and restoration in America’s failing educational system.
Proverbs 14:34 states that, “righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” Many times, as exemplified in the Old Testament, a nation’s moral standards are dependent on those exhibited by its leaders (or predominant political party). While each individual is responsible for his or her own sins; the fact remains that people are greatly influenced by those moral (or lack thereof) that popular leaders adopt.
The progressive liberal agenda, empowered by well-known men and women in the arts and entertainment industries, have made significant gains in the political arena over the past few decades. In fact, many liberal groups, such as the ACLU, seek to remove anything related to God or Christianity from the governmental and educational systems because of a misapplied interpretation of the phrase, “separation of church and state.” We must see a shift in this arena in order to preserve the Christian heritage that America was founded upon. The goal is to put in place righteous political leaders that will positively affect all aspects of government.
The media mountain includes news sources such as radio, TV news stations, newspapers, Internet news and opinion (blog) sites and etc. The media has the potential to sway popular opinion on current issues based upon its reporting, which is not always truthful or accurate. In the 2008 elections, the liberal “elite” media played a vital role, especially in the Presidential race. Their generally supportive and positive reporting greatly influenced the outcome.
There has been a rise in Christian news services, which is needed. However, to bring transformation to the mountain of media, Christians who are gifted for and called into this type of work must be willing to report righteously and truthfully in the secular marketplace.
6. ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT
In this mountain we find some of the most influential forces shaping our society. Music, filmmaking, television, social media, and the performing arts drive the cultural tastes, values and standards of a nation’s citizens, particularly its youth.
With a heavy reliance on the strong appeal of sex, drugs and alcohol, the arts and entertainment industries wield significant influence. The body of Christ needs powerful, righteous men and women who are not afraid to take their God-given talent into the arts and entertainment arenas. People ready to further His purposes, while impacting those who are lost in darkness and would not otherwise be interested in any kind of Christian message in traditional forms.
The ability to literally create wealth through ingenuity, enterprise, creativity and effort and is a God-given gift and a universal impulse. The markets and economic systems that emerge whenever people are free to pursue buying and selling become the lifeblood of a nation. This includes anything from farms to small businesses to large corporations.
Of course this realm is prone to corruption through idolatry, greed and covetousness. In response, the Church must embrace its responsibility to train up those who are called into the marketplace to manage businesses and provide leadership with integrity and honesty. We believe it is the Lord’s will to make his people prosperous and that He desires for His Church to use its wealth to finance the work of Kingdom expansion. Simply put: Prosperity with a purpose.
Everything rises and falls on leadership. Leadership depends on attitude and skill. Attitude and skill depends on what we do. What we do depends on what we say and what we say depends on what we think. So, the bottom line of the leadership shortage worldwide is mainly in the way we think.
We read in Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV) "For as he thinks in his heart, so is he." The simple fact that you are reading this welcoming letter confirms that you are one of the few who are thinking positively, recognising the unique ability in you and the purpose God created you for. By wanting to equip yourself with higher education you are already a leader. And So, I want to congratulate you today. You are busy rewriting history because you are willing to become part of the few who will emerge as leaders to make a difference in the future of our country.
EMPOWER YOURSELF TO LEAD
Leader’s traditionally find themselves lonely and isolated. Leadership can be a solitary and often thankless task. KINGDOMMARKETPLACEACADEMY is designed to change all that.
This unique NETWORKis a place where leaders from any walk of life can share ideas, seek insight and guidance and encourage each other through the inevitable trials that come with their positions.
KINGDOMMARKETPLACEACADEMY brings experienced and novice leaders together. It’s not only for spiritual leaders but also for those who serve in business, government, the military and the home, in other words the 7 Mountains. Spiritual leadership principles apply to any position of authority. The teachings of the Holy Bible are not meant to be contἀined to the church walls, but are to be lived in every facet of life—especially for those in leadership positions.

CALL TO ACTION
A school for Kingdom Education
(We want to help fufill Gods calling on your life. Every christian is a minister)
Dear Workplace Believer,
Did you know your work is your calling? I don’t know if anyone has told you this, but it’s true. You may have previously thought that only pastors and church leaders have a calling from God, but I want you to know that you are called by God to do what you are doing in the workplace, and the work you are doing is very important. I want you to feel affirmed in this calling, and to know that you have been anointed to do the very work you are doing in the marketplace.
The Bible confirms this in Colossians 3:23,24: “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.”
Did you know that the 9-5 window, or the time that we go to work each day is one of the most important mission fields in the world today? The workplace is where you will spend 70-80% of your time. Because of this, it is very important that you see your work as a calling. You will have the keys for solutions to problems that many people face, because you have fellowship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I like to call these types of people “change agents.”
Many may try to tell you that your work is not spiritually as important as someone in vocational ministry, that there is a sacred/secular divide between “holy” work and “unholy” work; that somehow the work of a pastor or missionary is much more important than a doctor, teacher, or business leader. But I want to tell you that is not true. Of all the miracles Jesus performed, 90% were in the marketplace.
Avodah (Ah’-voe-dah) is a Hebrew word used in the Bible that has two distinct yet intertwined meanings: work and worship. So you see, our work is worship to Him!
Therefore, I want to encourage you to seek God with all that you have for your workplace calling. Get in His word and learn to hear His voice. Spend time in prayer each day. Worship Him to get filled up with His Holy Spirit. The scripture says, “My sheep know My voice…” (John 10:27) We are all called to hear His voice in our lives.
There may be a specific industry you are called to, or a specific sphere or mountain of culture, such as family, education, government, media, arts and entertainment, religion, or business. It may be a combination of several of these 7 mountains. I want you to seek God for where He wants you to be, and also to be faithful in what He has given you right now.
I want to encourage you to do the work you are doing with excellence. Your work has eternal value as service to our Heavenly Father, our King. “Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” (Ephesians 6:7) There are some people who may be difficult to work with, especially bosses. I want you to work as unto the Lord in all situations, but especially in these kinds of situations. Extend grace to those who do not deserve it, because this is what our Savior did for us.
Most of all, I want to encourage you to love God, seek Him first everyday, and love your neighbor as yourself. (Matt 22:37-39) When we live out our faith in the workplace, lives will be touched, and communities will be transformed. I have seen it happen!
Finally, Paul exhorted believers in Titus 2:8-10 to literally adorn their lives with the Word of God to express the nature of God to others even in difficult work environments.
There is no more important time than now to exemplify the love and grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. You are anointed for your work – – you are anointed to do the work God has called you to do.
May you be blessed to live out your calling in the workplace!
