About Us
The FiveTwo Mission

At FiveTwo, we know that God calls many Christians to be sacred starters. But many feel stuck and unsure of how to move forward. We’ve created a proven approach that clarifies, equips, and activates their unique calling. And, we provide a network that supports them throughout their journey.

We believe that, when more Christians activate their entrepreneurial skills, they will help more people know Jesus and make an eternal difference in their local communities.

How We Clarify The Call of A Sacred Starter

Although we customize our coaching for each sacred starter, it always starts with clarification. This module covers three really important topics.

1
Becoming a Sacred Starter
  • Baptism
  • Vocation
  • Entrepreneurship is Godly
2
Becoming Jesus-Aware
  • What are HIS values?
  • What are HIS commands?
3
Becoming Self-Aware
  • Assessment
  • Faith Journey Timeline
  • Personal Values
How We Equip Sacred Starters
One of our primary purposes in equipping sacred starters is providing a network. Meeting mentors, finding like-minded peers, and sharing best practices sustains both the starter and the mission.

How We Activate Sacred Starters

Our collective experiences as coaches, entrepreneurs, and leaders have helped us codify exactly what sacred starters need to activate. In this third module, we get down to the practical application of building, funding, and launching their venture.

Build
Learn how to recruit a team, create a strategy, and craft an offer. Your coach will be there with you every step of the way.
Fund
Your coach will show you how to choose a revenue model, write a pitch, and raise funds with donors and/or investors.
Launch
You will be able to create action plans, build community partnerships, and know when to refine your offerings.
When more Christians answer the call to become Sacred Starters, more people will know Jesus and local communities will be transformed.
Our Team

Our team brings a deep desire to turn God-given dreams into a ministry or business that lasts. With a variety of startup skills and backgrounds, we will walk alongside you, providing exceptional startup training, coaching, and support. Together we will navigate the challenges of being a sacred starter.
