  • Continue to pray for the 40 Days for Life initiative.

The Gazette published a two-part series on the benefits and difficulties of drawing young professionals to our city.

Many of the youth of our nation are interested in making a difference, not just making money. A new term has been coined in recent years to describe the person who uses the skills and techniques of an entrepreneur to build a business or organization, but with a greater goal than just making money or meeting an immediate need: Sociopreneur. One business consultant (see link) says “Sociopreneurs’ prime motivation is to act as change agents for society rather than to generate profits. And unlike the majority of non-profit organisations, their work is targeted not only towards immediate, small-scale effects, but to sweeping, long-term change.”

We believe God would like to draw a whole community of sociopreneurs to our city and use it as a base from which to change the world.

Also, the Gazette article reported the belief among city leaders that young professionals are drawn and retained by culture — arts, music, cinema, etc.

Arts, music, and cinema do not have to be ungodly! We have the opportunity to pray in the artists who are world class in their talent and give expression to goodness, beauty, the greatness of his Kingdom, and the power of redemption to bring good to all of our city.
