“I had been praying for something that would give me wisdom and knowledge for business…the greatest takeaway for me is to now have a support group for small business entrepreneurs.”
“The community aspect was a big part of my decision to sign up for Genesis…getting to bounce ideas off of my cohort and see that they were struggling with the same things I was struggling with and helping each other through that stuff. That was the best part of it.”
A NEW MINISTRY FOR THE MARKETPLACE
A proven 9-week program that integrates timeless biblical wisdom with practical business acumen.
Thorough fieldwork, video content, and worksheets for each participant to do in between workshops.
A practical, activation-oriented group program to help people build a business plan … and make kingdom impact
Workshops + Content
Participants engage with exclusive training content on their own, then get together for a 90-minute workshop, virtually or in person. It’s up to your facilitator!
Participants don’t just think about their business, they talk to real customers and create an actual business plan that gives them confidence to grow and go.
Genesis anchors each session in Biblical principles for both life and business to help participants grow as a leader and a disciple.
Entrepreneurship is a lonely road. That’s why Genesis happens in a cohort, so participants encourage each other, give feedback, and pray together.
we’re in this together
PROMOTIONAL AND ONGOING COMMUNICATION
We’ll help you spread the word with a custom share-kit that includes email, social media, and printed materials. Our team is here to help your group members register and get started on the right foot with operational support.
OCEAN will train a volunteer facilitator from your community so they can lead with confidence. They will receive workshop scripts, best practices, and access to our program manager.
PRIVACY & SUPPORT
The whole Genesis curriculum is online. Your church will have a private group space in our app, where they can learn and encourage each other. We’ll provide all the technical support and troubleshooting along the way.
By committing to start a 9-week Genesis small group in Winter 2022, your church will only pay $1000 and each participant will pay a $97 registration fee. You’re securing all the best of Genesis with a 60% discount.
Offer all the benefits for up to 15 entrepreneurs, including 30+ online lessons and access to a library of resources for each participant, along with their weekly group workshop.
Why a Registration Fee for Group Members?
Signing-up for Genesis is a commitment. Participants will spend a couple hours each work building their business, and we know that a small registration fee increases their commitment to get as much value as possible from the experience.
Help Along the Way
Our OCEAN team will be checking in with your facilitator and church leader along the way. If you, or the entrepreneurs we’re serving together, have questions, you’ll have a direct line to our program manager.
