Leading People and Building Organizations God’s Way
When the skills of a leader are boiled down, there are really only two core skills: leading people and knowing how to build and manage organizations God’s way. That is why the School of Business Leadership (GoBusiness) is training men and women called to the marketplace in our schools around the world. As professionally trained economists, business consultants, and business owners, we take the scriptural truths of stewardship, capital creation, and management and help serious people who aspire to lead do so more effectively.
Perhaps more importantly, the same principles apply to the building of families, churches, organizations, and even nations. These master principles are both generic, specific, and multi-dimensional. The most common statement we hear from our students about the two-year school is something like this: “You know, it began to change my marriage and family first, and then it moved on to my business dealings.” We say, “Great, you’re getting it!” God builds all organizations using the same basic principles.
God builds intentionally, strategically, relationally, and with results-driven feedback. We have mined the Scriptures for these universal building patterns and, with support from your personal course facilitators, help you apply these life-changing and capital-producing truths to your life and those you lead and influence.

My life and thinking have been dramatically transformed since we heard about GoBusiness. I have a BBA in Accounting, an MBA in finance, and am also a CPA. I have over 12 years of corporate and business experience. This program has, by far, been more valuable to me than those degrees, the CPA, and the experience. Without a doubt, the school makes these degrees more useful for Kingdom work. If anyone has desired to put God’s Kingdom principles into practice, the materials do just that. As a matter of fact, as we began the first lesson, I was able to immediately apply the principles in the workplace. There are many other transformations that I have experienced as a result of this course of study. It is my heart’s desire that everyone in the body of Christ incorporate these teachings into their lifestyle. I am applying these principles to every aspect of my life. —BG, Georgia
