In the business world, Israel is known to be the land of startups.

Entrepreneurs see a marketplace need or problem and develop a business model to address it.

They often network and collaborate with each other to attract buyers or investors, but for many the partnerships go far beyond that – numerous like-minded professionals in Israel desire to see their country prosper in honor of God.

Israel FirstFruits Center for Economic Advancement connects entrepreneurs and marketplace professionals in Israel who are committed to glorifying God through economic transformation.

By equipping people to be fruitful stewards of their gifts, FirstFruits encourages businesses to grow and to make influencers effective in the marketplace.

Their vision is to see the Body of Messiah in Israel flourish and prosper.

This October marks the beginning of a 5-month course for small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs, designed to equip them with practical business tools within a biblical context.

The course, put on by FirstFruits in partnership with CBN Israel, and conducted at the Beit Asaph congregation, is taught by believing marketplace practitioners who have succeeded in their environment.

The initiative will include intensive coaching and it also creates a platform for marketplace professionals to network and develop international partnerships.

By supporting the work of FirstFruits believers can help transform the local Body from a state of marginality to a state of vitality and positive social impact.

“For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your prosperity.”
Psalm 122:9

The programs of FirstFruits strengthen the local economic base while also encouraging new initiatives and fostering a culture of vocational excellence.
