Ari is a Network for Professional Business Owners
If you want to ensure that your thriving business will leave a Kingdom legacy for years to come, this network is for you. If you’ve got a small business that you want to take to the next level, this network is for you. If your business is ready to receive customer referrals and you feel you have some experience and knowledge to offer others in this network, apply to become a Professional Member of Ari.
Ari is a Network for Aspiring Entrepreneurs
If you’ve got a business idea that you’d like help developing into a Kingdom enterprise, this network is for you. If you have a business that only exists on paper and you’re ready to launch it, with some guidance, this network is for you. Apply to become an Aspiring Member of Ari to receive resources and mentorship, until your business is ready to accept customer referrals.
Connect with other Kingdom-minded business owners
The world’s ways for doing business differ significantly from God’s ways. Surround yourself with others who are committed to doing Kingdom business, learn from them and strengthen your resolve to bless God and advance His Kingdom through your business.
Learn to apply Biblical principles to your business
The New Testament includes more Kingdom parables about finances and business than anything else. Why? Because our God is an investor and businessman. When we see Him and His Kingdom clearly in the Bible, we can grow enterprises that reflect His Kingdom on earth. This will bless many people for years to come, transform communities and lead industries.
Access business resources
The business apostles who created and lead Ari have a total of 60+ years experience doing Kingdom business and serving at the altar of God. As both committed altar ministers and successful Kingdom entrepreneurs, they have created a wealth of resources to take your Kingdom business to the next level.
Receive accountability to achieve your goals
As a member of Ari, capturing and sharing your business goals will be one of the first things we’ll encourage you to do. The members of this network will then hold you accountable to your own business goals and help you create a realistic plan to achieve them within the deadlines you set.
Understand the prophetically-revealed will of God for your business
God wants to talk with you about your business. He wants to release revelation into you and speak life into your plans. The business apostles who created and lead Ari are also prophetic ministers who will regularly pray for your business and share prophetic revelation specific to your enterprise to help you see it as God sees it, both the big picture and the details.
Gain apostolic guidance to become an industry leader
Advancing God’s Kingdom is all about reclaiming territory. He wants to reclaim your business industry, so that the “norm” in your industry is based on Biblical standards, not manipulation, money-loving or unethical protocols. God will speak through the business apostles to help you grow your business into becoming an industry leader, which will prove that Kingdom ways are best for doing business and influence your whole industry.
Be mentored by other Kingdom entrepreneurs
Aspiring Members of Ari receive business mentorship from the business apostles who lead Ari as well as from Professional Members of Ari who have a desire to give back. Mentorship can make all the difference between business success and becoming a business statistic. Statistics reveal that more than 50% of small businesses fail in the first 4 years and less than 10% of businesses make it to their 5th year. Mentorship can make your business impervious to these realities because your success is based on Kingdom truth!
Grow your business through customer referrals
Ari Members are committed to supporting and growing each others’ businesses. For this reason, we regularly provide customer referrals for all businesses led by Professional Members, and we track the income made from these customer referrals. Helping you make money is an important function of the Ari Network, because the more your business grows, the more glory you can bring to God and His Kingdom.
Growing and thriving businesses often hit unforeseen challenges that can begin to stunt growth. Ari helps Professional Members address these challenges through Brainstorming Business Challenges. In these sessions, we look at your business challenges from various angles, seek God for direction, and share tried and true solutions based on our business experiences. If two minds are better than one, imagine how powerful a network of Kingdom minds are with God in the midst of us! Problem solved!
