The concept of HOUSE BLEND CAFE developed over the course of several years of dreaming of a creative way to connect with people and impact lives - 100% of net profits are used to love and serve people in the local community and around the world (feeding the homeless, funding services for women and children in need, home renovation projects and helping to restore neighborhoods, supporting other people who have a heart to serve, and starting other HOUSE BLEND CAFE’s in other communities).

As a Christian affiliate marketer, if a websurfer buys or signs up for a product you promote, you get paid… how cool is that? Whether it is theChristiandude.com, or Amazon, or Best Buy, or Esprit clothing, or Sears, Clickbank, or thousands of other top businesses in the world, or even smaller online Christian Bible, book, and T-shirt stores, they literally pay you to promote their product! Better yet, we teach you how to successfully promote those products. How awesome is that for your Christian home business?
In 1999, Tom Sudyk, CEO and founder of EC Group International established e-commerce operations in Chennai, India. The vision for expanding to India served two purposes. One purpose was to provide small and medium sized US companies safe access to the abundant talent India had to offer. The second purpose was to establish a company that would make a difference to the people it touched.

Credit Mapping Partnerships. City vision sets up credit mapping articulation agreements with ministries that have high quality ministry training that can be evaluated through our prior learning assessment process. We have credit mapping partnerships with Wheeler Mission, The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI), Third Millennium, Saylor Academy and YWAM’s University of the Nations that works in conjunction with our prior learning process. If you are with an organization that would like to set up a Credit Mapping Partnership, please contact us.

So is that what it takes to be a “faith-based” organization now? In some ways, it appears that these businesses get the best of all worlds: an ability to proselytize to employees and inject their biblical worldview, but without the onus that true ministries have to actually improve the lot of the poor. Instead, they not only get to build their profit for their own comfort, but receive the benefit of tax write offs for giving parts of those profits to true faith-based organizations, who also then do not have to pay taxes because they are religious organizations and non-profits.
“The government should not be able to coerce faith-based, for-profit businesses to violate their religious beliefs,” said Jeremy Dys, Senior Counsel for Liberty Institute, which is representing the owner. ”This Mandate illegally and unconstitutionally forces our client to violate his sincerely held religious beliefs that form the very foundation for his work as a businessman.”

I am still contracting, but my wife & I have been feeling a shift in many of the areas that you speak of. I have always seen the business as a ministry & have seen God use it to impact lives, but we felt it was time to develop in our entrepreneurial thinking. I believe there is going to be a move of God in this nation & I believe it will be huge in the marketplace. Feel like we are just getting started down this path & I appreciate that God is stirring your heart & your sharing this.
It’s a question that came to the forefront with Eden Foods, a self-proclaimed “faith-based” business challenging the contraception mandate. Although the owner filed suit out of religious objection to covering birth control, he admitted to reporter Irin Carmon he really didn’t care one way or the other, he just didn’t want to pay for it. “Because I don’t care if the federal government is telling me to buy my employees Jack Daniel’s or birth control. What gives them the right to tell me that I have to do that? That’s my issue, that’s what I object to, and that’s the beginning and end of the story.”
It just occurred to me on this, my 100th post, that I don’t think I’ve ever really answered the question, “What is a Christian Entrepreneur?” That seems pretty silly of me since it is the name of the blog.  It’s a simple enough question that would seem self explanatory at first glance, but the more you really stop to think about it the deeper and more complex the answer becomes.
Companies like Sears, Amazon, eBay, Esprit Clothing Company, Cabela’s, and hundreds more pay you money to market their products for them online. Every sale you make for them, they compensate you… usually with commissions ranging from 10% to 25%. Those are companies you can represent as an affiliate, through your affiliate marketing campaigns and running a Christian home business.
Crowned Free is a direct selling company that was created so women can run their own cause-based fashion business and bring hope to survivors of Human Trafficking. You can create a sustainable income for yourself and employment opportunities for rescued women at the same time. When you sell Crowned Free products as a Social Entrepreneur, you are providing life-changing opportunities of employment to the survivors who make many of the items in our collection. Crowned Free also gives back a portion of all profits to organizations in the US, and around the world, who are working to restore hope in the women who have escaped human trafficking and exploitation.
Good post, Brad. I know it was written a while back, but I just came across it. To me, a Christian entrepreneur is one who runs their business to bring honor to God. It may be in the way they deal with customers, what they do with their money, offering quality products, etc. Everything they do, they do to the best of their ability, as it says in Colossians 3:23, “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord aned not to men.”

City Vision is very focused on providing extremely practical Christian education for those interested in Addiction Counseling and Nonprofit Management. City Vision offers fewer degrees than the mega-universities, but the degrees that we do, we do very well. We like to think of ourselves similar to the family-run hardware store where staff can answer all your questions with personalized service as opposed to the big box department stores like Walmart that offer everything. 
Multi-Student Organizational Discounts. We offer a scholarship to students from any organization that refers multiple students to City Vision in a given year. The scholarship makes tuition $5,000 ($500/course, $266.67/credit hour) for both undergraduate and graduate programs. If an organization does not have more than one student for at least a year, that organization loses it’s scholarship status. If you are with an organization that would like to receive this discount, please contact us.

"I would be stating the obvious to say that we work in a culture that pushes successfully for businesses to seek financial gain above all else. I am thrilled that someone finally thought to publish a guide that allows me as a consumer and a business owner to deal with people who have similar values. The Christian Business Referral Network proposes a new level of accountability in advertising and business practices that gives me greater confidence in my choices as a customer. It also inspires a greater trust of those patients who would choose our office because we are Christians. This was an inspired idea! WE LOVE BEING PART OF THIS MINISTRY!”

Success in business requires the merging of personal passions and professional goals. At King University, the online Bachelor of Business Administration allows students to be nurtured in both. King University’s religious foundation merges with a relevant and career-focused curriculum, allowing students to gain the skills they need for successful and meaningful careers.
Regardless of the success and profitability of a particular idea, the entrepreneur must make good on his commitments and do what it takes to pay off any debts that he may have incurred while pursuing his vision. This financial “sword of Domacles” motivates the entrepreneur to work strategically to best serve people in the market  and make his enterprise a success.

All those products above and over 3,000 more like them are in our members area, for you to use and learn from, and 90% of them have what are called “rights”, meaning you can resell those products for 100% profit!!! Some products even allow you to change the content or code, and then claim yourself as the original author or creator! No, it’s not illegal… it’s encouraged, because it’s simply a book that has “PLR” rights. As in Private Label Rights, meaning you can do whatever you want with the product.
Still, the owner, Doug Erickson, insists it is a religious company because, when it was failing and he thought about selling them off, he “gave it over to God” and now it makes money. “Erickson believes that his role as President and majority shareholder of the Dealerships is that of a steward of a business given to him by God and that his employees are God’s children who are entrusted to his care. He regards it as his religious duty to operate the Dealerships in conformity with his religious beliefs,” states the complaint. It also notes that he believes his company is a “marketplace ministry,” meaning he evangelizes to his employees and customers — a fact that I’m sure some of his customers would no doubt prefer to be made aware of before coming to shop.

With respect, I think the article makes a simple concept more complex than it needs to be. But, I can understand, too, that — with the entire Christian community inundated with things like “The Purpose Driven Life” — there seems to exist some pressure today (that didn’t exist years ago) in making sure that every activity of one’s life has to be justified as “a way to glorify God”.
A 30 day, task-oriented, Christ-centered lesson plan, and the ultimate “getting started guide” to Internet marketing success. The Plan of Attack is over 200 pages long and is one of the most in-depth tutorials of its kind, written by theChristiandude himself. This is not a tutorial series written by someone else and a new cover slapped onto it. This is the real deal, and not only are they the same exact tactics that Dude used to get started, but also the same tactics he still uses today for his own prosperity and for his own Christian home business.

The warnings of succumbing to the love of money are dire in the Bible.  The rich young ruler who claimed to be perfect in following the commandments was turned away by Christ because he loved his possessions more than his Creator.  There were none that contradicted the young man’s claim so we can assume he was probably a very good man, but it takes more.

The idea of a strict separation between sacred and secular is not a biblical one. Neither is the separation between “clergy” and “laity.” When you follow Jesus, you’re part of his kingdom in every realm of your life, so living out a Christian ethic and pursuing excellence and success in the marketplace by serving the needs of others and becoming generous is one way of positively impacting the world and drawing others to an understanding of God’s love for them. So let’s get past the stigma, break through our fears, and do this well!
In our 200+ page tutorial, The Plan of Attack, you are presented with an extensive, step-by-step action plan that will take you from “baby Christian marketer”, to being on fire for Internet marketing… why? Well, once you get a taste of spending more time with your family, blessing the one’s you love, and focusing on the most important things in life (1-God, 2-family, and 3-everything else) you can’t help but to get on fire for what you’re doing!
