How might we better creative entrepreneurs in our church?
The forming of the Seventh-day Adventist movement was driven creative and enterprising young people whose creativity, business acumen, entrepreneurial endeavours and subsequent financial capital laid the foundations for the global church we have become. Today there is no shortage of creative and entrepreneurial talent and in this month’s Sideroom conversation we’ll be discussing what kind of support systems we need to be put in place for our creatives business minded to thrive and what this could mean for mission.
We’ll be joined by Laura Jeffers, fashion designer and creative business woman as she shares her challenges and triumphs of building her fashion businesses Asikara by Laura Jane and Stay Lit Apparel as a devoted Seventh-day Adventist. Together we’ll explore the unanswered questions such as why is it taboo to talk about making money and business? Why do we snub certain industries and enterprises and creative discipline, holding them in higher regard than others? Why are our church community often the first to expect products and services for cheap or free?
Join us for the next Sideroom conversation with Laura Jeffers and other Adventist creatives to discuss these questions and more. Laura’s Talk will be followed by breakout discussions where you can meet and chat to other like-minded people from around the world. The Sideroom is a series of online meetups for Adventist/Christian changemakers, innovators and creatives who are curious about and want to actively shape the future of our church. All around the world we are seeing many new ideas, experiments and faith expressions and the Sideroom exists to connect people and the ideas who will collectively drive the change we want to see.
