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.
Each week this summer we’ll be counting down the list until we get to the Top 10 … So check back often to see what stories made the list!
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.
