The Top 100 Video Stories for Faith Driven Entrepreneurs

There’s nothing like an authentic story. It has the power to inspire and validate what God is doing in a powerful way—practical, inspirational, but not prescriptive. We’ve hunted, gathered, and collected the top video stories. Our hope is that you’ll watch these and realize you're a part of a larger community of entrepreneurs driven by their faith. God is at work around the world. You’re a part of a movement of God’s people. May these videos encourage and inspire you on your journey. 

Please note, we’ve also left this list with room to grow. We’ve intentionally left a few of the 100 spaces blank because we want to hear from you. What are some of the other stories you’d like to see us highlight? Share with us here.
