Recently we had the privilege of taking another group through the Biblical Entrepreneurship course. This has proven to be a life changing experience and did Hennie van Loggerenberg summarized it like this:
As an entrepreneur or a Biblical Entrepreneur as we have called it, faith cannot be excluded from our vocabulary! The faith that will lead to absolute obedience and peace – the peace we do not fully understand. The process of identifying opportunities, taking calculated risks, solving problems, exercising business stewardship for Biblical profit are the main principles that will lead to Biblical Entrepreneurship! Identifying those opportunities – or like most of us would claim – being at the right place and the right time (timing) is one of the biggest problems or challenges the body of Christ is facing today! How to discern those opportunities are for you, how to know - "this is it!" The main issue here might be that fear, doubt and a lack of peace will hinder the Body to grab hold of these opportunities. As for the Body of Christ – grace is the key, although we do not know all the answers. Taking these calculated risks will require preparation. But at the end your absolute passion to serve the community will lead to a lifelong investment in your understanding of grace and an absolute appreciation of what God has given us! It's about HIS kingdom! It's about a solid character that is content – even in the wilderness. With an attitude that will draw people closer, love the LORD and willing to offer up all at any cost and worship HIM! Then at the end, my tithe becomes my life and all I have. My gifts a sacrifice and all I do being an ambassador at a healthy altitude.

During a recent visit to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, I had the privilege of being part of the launching of an Emerging Leadership Network for Africa. This is a huge step in the right direction as I strongly believe the time for Africa to stand up and take its rightful place in the world of global missions has arrived.
Under the covering, leadership and guidance of the Movement for Africa National Initiatives (MANI), five of us gathered for three days to share stories from our own regions and our desire to see a more unified voice on the continent. On Saturday we had the opportunity to meet a group of younger leaders from Ethiopia and heard how they too desire a more unified platform from where they can be more effective in that which they are already doing.
Although much can be said on our time together, I thought it good to post a few comments made by these younger leaders as they viewed the way forward as an Emerging Leadership Generation (ELG).
