|Organization Name:||Arrow Leadership|
|Project Title:||Arrow Entrepreneur Project|
|Purpose of Investment:||To create a leadership program designed for Christian entrepreneurs in Vancouver.|
How would your community be changed if Christian business owners focused more on being generous than making a profit, saw business as ministry and ran their business to achieve eternal significance? Arrow Leadership is launching a new transformative program for entrepreneurial Christian business owners to transform their lives, families, businesses and communities for God.
The purpose of Arrow Entrepreneur is to provide a unique experience and community for Christian entrepreneurs to be developed in Jesus-centred leadership to thrive personally, foster business growth and expand Kingdom impact.
This new program targets Christian business owners who are successful entrepreneurs. They face significant pressure and risk and seek high reward. They are activists, quick learners and have a keen desire to leverage time for impact. Research says they are lonely, desiring a safe and sharpening peer community; they move fast but need time for reflection, discernment and planning. As believers, they seek spiritual formation coupled with practical skills taught experientially.
Arrow Entrepreneur will offer a top quality, fast-paced and practical learning context creating dynamic growth and safe relationships through quarterly 1-day gatherings for groups of 20-25 Christian entrepreneurs beginning in Vancouver, BC and then expanding. Each 1-day gathering has a three-fold focus: Soul Care, Personal Leadership and Team/Business Leadership. These will include 10-20 minute teachings with practical tools for assessment and application, followed by discussion in small groups. One-to-one coaching will be available six times per year.
(1) To successfully beta-test Arrow Entrepreneur by March 2019 in Vancouver with a minimum of 15 participants.
(2) To launch the first cohort of Arrow Entrepreneur by June 2019 with 20-25 Christian entrepreneurial business owners.
(3) To see a 15% increase in spiritual health, business success and Kingdom engagement among Arrow Entrepreneur participants as measured by pre- and post-testing of participants at the beginning of the cohort and at the end of the first year.
