Build your business with intention.

Redemptive plans for building teams and going to market. 

We've talked to a lot of Christian business leaders and entrepreneurs. And one thing is clear: they all want to honor God with their business.

They know they want their business to be a redemptive force, but aren't sure how to get that done.

Thoughtful leaders are asking:

How can I hear God's voice and take the next obedient step?
How can I integrate my faith and my work?
How can I be used by God while also building a profitable business?
Business and spiritual growth are a process, who can walk along with me?

Why Redemptive?

It's not enough to be ethical. Doing good is... well, good. But anyone can choose to run an ethically sound business. Only those that follow Jesus can build a business that transforms lives and reconnects the world to God. 

We're joining the many voices in Christian entrepreneurship that say we're called to something higher than ethical. We're called to be redemptive.

The journey to discovering how starts at the foundation of your business.

The truth is, there are a lot of ways God uses business to expand His Kingdom. Our accelerators help you build a redemptive foundation for your company.

Understanding the who of your team and the what of your organization will lead you to a clear how.

How can you take the next step to see your business become a Kingdom Outpost?

A place where people see Jesus, and take their next steps on a redemptive journey toward Christ?

It's normal to build a plan to grow your business or launch a new service or location. But most don’t have a way to define and plan for their Kingdom impact.

Brand Disciples solves for how.

5Q Redemptive Leaders

12-Week Intensive Starts June 6

This 12-week intensive helps build a foundation of leadership and team operation based on the Biblical blueprint. Based on 5Q: Reactivating the Original Intelligence and Capacity of the Body of Christ by Alan Hirsch, our team helps leaders understand how they are built and what kind of team they need for Christ-like leadership and team building.  This process activates something greater than EQ, it puts your leadership on the path to 5Q based on Ephesians 4.

This group meets once a week over Zoom, and will include additional in-person meet-ups for those in or able to travel to the VA/MD/DC region.

Still have questions? Hopefully this will help.

Who should participate?
The Intensive and the Accelerator serve startups, seed-stage businesses, nonprofits and social enterprises, and those launching a new product or service or division from an existing business. Both of them are for leaders who want to build a redemptive business that creates impact with everyone they work with and serve.
What's an Intensive vs. Accelerator?

Our 5Q Redemptive Leadership intensive is designed to help you dig into God's word, and apply the rich wisdom in Ephesians 4 to your business and mission. It's a deep study, and a chance to apply God's word to your personal growth as a leader. The intensive is one module in our accelerator.

Our Redemptive Go-To-Market Strategy accelerator is designed to kick-off a new business, or a new product/service. It's one of the modules of our accelerator built to combine decades of marketing and business strategy with deep Biblical principles. 

What's the time commitment?
Our 5Q Intensive is 1 hour per week, plus in-person meet-up opportunities.

Our Go-To-Marketing Accelerator is 90 minutes per week, plus homework. And, in-person meet-ups. This is for a highly committed and engaged leader.
How can my church be involved?

For our Go-To-Market Strategy accelerator, we're encouraging that someone from your church leadership is brought along in the journey.

It's our team's conviction that every entrepreneur needs to be connected to the local body of Christ.

Our team cannot walk beside you in every season, and we know that having someone in your local region to pray for you and call out your purpose is absolutely crucial to any Christian business endeavor.
