Kingdom Business Curriculum

Surprised by Hope is an East African community development ministry. Our vision is freedom from poverty of body, mind, and spirit. With God's help, we'll accomplish this vision by creating lasting solutions to poverty in East Africa by providing Christ-centered business education for pastors, church leaders, and their community members and fostering personal encounters with the love of God.

Our proprietary 10-session Kingdom Business curriculum provides a spiritually integrated, culturally relevant, developmentally appropriate, and economically beneficial business education. This curriculum contains comprehensive lessons founded on Scripture, based on globally recognized principles, and made relevant for all East African businesspeople. Included are lessons and examples specifically designed for church leaders, advanced lessons for deeper learning, testimonies from former participants, and application practice that leads toward a written Business Plan. A Participant’s Guide will be available for purchase.
