Nice post but while it sounds good in theory, faith based businesses don’t work well. My first passion as a Christian who loves tech was to create a business that would serve the community. I started from an events platform to an online radio station. I did this because I identified gaps in the market. There wasn’t any doubt that it would meet a need. However, most people wanted to use the services for free. Had many who came for what they could get and then left when they were asked to pay. They seem happy to pay with a “God will bless you”. However after many God bless you, there were no money to keep things afloat and they fail miserably.

Although I was born in a Christian family, it wasn’t until I had a personal encounter with Christ that my faith grew deeper. As an Christian entrepreneur, I knew God had given me certain gifts and talents so I could bless others through it. It was through such a calling that Clothed in Scarlet was born. As I learnt more about Jesus and soaked myself in the Scriptures, I was amazed at how God would often teach me Biblical principles I could implement in my own business. The emails I receive from women worldwide are proof that God was blessing many through my business.
Not long ago I contacted Sunu about starting a home business. I had read her post on 50 Authentic Online Business Ideas That Actually Work} and was inspired to put my talents to use to help my family earn a second income. What was merely a dream in my heart quickly began to take shape, and by the end of the year it was a reality as I launched my website: Missional Call – a fellowship and resource center for missionaries. Sunu expertly walked me through each phase with precise and well thought out step-by-step instructions. It was obvious as we met online on a weekly basis, that she had prepared for each session ahead of time. She knew what she planned to bring to the table and her obvious talent for teaching made me feel confident that indeed I could do this! I know that you will not only find these modules helpful, you will come away with great confidence that you can put your talents to work for you and produce a quality, marketable product!
Ultimately, choosing City Vision’s national accreditation over a regionally accredited school is a question of value: you get more for your money with City Vision. If you need the “gold plating” of regional accreditation for one of the reasons described above, then it may be worth paying 2-10 times more to get a degree with regional accreditation from another school. However, because of the career choices of our students, they prefer to choose the value of City Vision rather than more expensive high-end options.
My Christian friends… today and with a heavy heart I announce the closing of the website TheChristianDude.com ! We have two considerations in place for our future… to complete revamp the site and reshape it with a completely different approach. Or, sell it since it has top 5 rankings on Google for “Christian Home Business” and many other Christian-centric search words and phrases. If you are interested in purchasing this site and the thousands of products on it, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org… but be patient, as I am not checking that email much these days. …
