Kingdom Entrepreneurship Conference
Every believer shares the same mission to bring His Kingdom. Some are called to do it through business, others through missions and yet others through the church. This conference will help you to build faith, receive spiritual empowerment, gain expertise to find and follow your calling in bringing the Kingdom.
You will also have the opportunity to build relationships with Kingdom focused people from around the country. We have brought together experienced Kingdom entrepreneurs in business, missions and the church, from Spain and Australia, to impart and teach you how to fulfil your unique calling.
It will help you to integrate your spiritual and business life, to see and take new opportunities and learn how to bring long term Kingdom success to your endeavours.
The conference speakers from Australia and Spain have spent lifetimes bringing the Kingdom in business, ministry and church leadership by bringing entrepreneurship, building great companies, establishing missions, helping the under-privileged and nurturing others to success.
