The Intersection: Story of God and Business Owners
May Topic: Being a Great Steward of God’s Blessings
Business owners are worth more than the money they produce for the purpose and plan of God. As we look at the story of God, we begin to see that any business owner, any entrepreneur, any hard-working profession looks more like God and His story than the churches we often attend. Let’s begin a conversation in May that will encourage you and motivate you towards the heart of God as you steward God’s business His way.
David Cederquist has been serving in underserved neighborhoods for 14 years. His calling in urban ministry and entrepreneurial spirit has brought Brookside Community Church on the near eastside of Indianapolis to become a church for some of the most disadvantaged in our city. With community development and the gospel in center focus, Brookside has launched programs that serves men and women in their reentry, children and teens in a youth development strategy to assist in defying the odds of trauma, and has developed $2 million in transitional and permanent housing. Brookside CDC’s newest initiative, UpRise Indy Inc., is a social enterprise of three businesses to create on the job training opportunities for our cities most vulnerable. Brookside Community Church and CDC are becoming an important part of God’s kingdom building efforts as the church engages the difficulty issues poverty and seeks to alleviate in a gospel-centered way.
