The Business as Mission Conference is happening in 2 weeks! For the first time, this conference will be held in Santa Clara, California, October 4-6, 2019. We wanted to give a friendly reminder if you’re in the area or plan to be.
OCEAN Conference, is a two-day experience at Crossroads Church in Cincinnati, October 10-11th that will help you explore how to be a leader of purpose and passion. It’s a collection of entrepreneurs, business owners, creatives, and more to gain insight, wisdom, and practical tools to equip you along your journey.
We love the team at OCEAN and their commitment to come alongside Faith Driven Entrepreneurs. They recently reached out and asked us to share that their application window for OCEAN Accelerator is open and will accept applications until October 30, 2019. The application is available here.
Today we’re in Cupertino, California connecting with Christeen Rico. She’s on the International Expansion team at Apple. She spends much of her time focused on bringing Apple's largest product—their retail stores—to life in new countries around the world. In addition to that, she is responsible for co-leading a volunteer team to define and execute programs that strengthen community and growth opportunities for the Apple Christian Fellowship, one of Apple'sDiversity Network Association. It’s a part of a growing trend that’s emerging in places like Facebook, SalesForce, Google, and many other companies. These are great movements for people looking to connect their faith to their work, and we’re excited to bring you all that Christeen had to share…
If you’re new to FDE, you may not realize that this movement is much more than a website.

As Faith Driven Entrepreneurs we know that you're looking for resources to encourage and equip you on your journey. We also know that a big part of that is finding a community of like minded leaders both to provide insight and counsel and in some instances to financially invest in the work God is doing…
