Entrepreneurial Faith : Launching Bold Initiatives to Expand God's Kingdom

by Walt Kallestad & K. Caldwell

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Entrepreneurial Faith, written by two established pastors, is a think-outside-the-box type of book. The two authors’ intent was “not so the church can have more, but that being creative in our actions we can give more to others." They remind us that thinking this way is about following God, not about specific methods or strategies. Through their personal experiences and thinking processes, you easily find yourself examining your own personal ministry as well as that of your local church. How can we become more creative in sharing the love of Christ to our communities?

The only downfall was repetitive statements found throughout the book. But then if we tend to skim through parts, we might not always get the point the first time! A bonus of this book is an appendix, which includes a suggested process and practical steps to progress thoughts into actions.

Are you searching for new, creative ways to change the status quo and connect to your community? This book is an excellent tool to use in this godly pursuit. – Becky Swymeler, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

Get in step with God’s entrepreneurial spirit.

Two of America’s most influential pastors have drawn up a compelling blueprint to help churches and individuals move out of the sanctuary and into the community. Kirbyjon Caldwell and Walt Kallestad explain how to create innovative partnerships that join the church’s passion for ministry with the expertise of the business community to meet physical and spiritual needs.

Through biblical teaching and case studies from churches of various sizes and in a variety of locales, the authors show that the life of faith is an adventure of risk-taking in ministry. Entrepreneurial Faith challenges pastors, lay leaders, and individual Christians to invest their skill and passion in practical expressions of ministry. The same principles provide a new avenue for community-minded professionals to partner with churches to bring needed services to the community.

With this book as a guide, you can stop being a spectator and start putting your faith to work by diving into the adventure of entrepreneurial ministry. Right now, right where you are, you can make a needed difference in a needy world.
