Summary

The Church of God in Honduras is looking to support their pastors and church leaders by providing training to start, improve, promote and grow a business. The business school is key to the church’s vision to influence Honduras for Christ. The idea is helping others to help others by providing training, mentoring, accountability and resource.

Cost

The total project cost is $42,372.80.

Project # 42.40255

BACKGROUND

The Church of God in Honduras currently has six established congregations and three mission outreach programs, an elementary school and a business school. They have recently purchased land in the city of La Ceiba to build a larger sanctuary, college, health facility and recreational center.

Vision

The business school is key to the productive side of the vision and has been operating at a limited and informal level since 2010 in which they launched 6 startups. They now feel the need to upgrade and improve the school’s purpose and help more people out of poverty, so they may help others. 

STRATEGY

The purpose of the school is to reach and teach individuals, with a love for or skills in business, to start, improve, promote and grow a business. The training endeavors to change the current mentality of the students from consumers to producers. In addition to helping others create their own businesses, the school will start and administrate its own businesses to become self-supporting within five years.

Objectives for the Entrepreneurial School

Honduras Entrepreneurial School

There are four main objectives of the entrepreneurial school:

  • Help the best students start their own micro business by giving them the knowledge and a small loan
  • Start church owned businesses to fund existing and future ministries
  • Reach unbelievers for Christ through the program and future businesses
  • Create jobs

The Church of God in Honduras

The Church of God in Honduras was started in 1972 by Philip Allen on the island of Roatan. Honduras was entered by the Church of God as a result of the growing interest in Latin America by Christians in North America. By 2000, the Church was operating an AIDS clinic, a food bank, and sending funds for ministry in Cuba. Today, there are six established congregations on the mainland.
