What’s a King? “Kings” is the term we use to describe men and women who harness wealth and influence in the marketplace…in business, government, communication, education, entertainment, finance, the arts…to expand God’s Kingdom. Releasing Kings for Ministry in the Marketplace is the title of our book – but it’s really a movement of God’s people into their ministry and their dreams. It provides a Scriptural basis for the expansion of the Kingdom of God into all areas of society. It paints a picture of Kings who are naturally bold, competitive, creative, and decisive, who are being used to fulfill the Great Commission. God is going to use an entrepreneurial people to fill the whole Earth with His Glory. You’re invited!
7 Reasons You’ll Find Yourself in love with Marketplace Ministry
1. The Freedom you will feel is contagious
Finding purpose is the hallmark of motivation in vocational and spiritual life. Personal destiny is captivating, empowering, and releasing. We’ve used “Kings” to refer to this dynamic. There is an entrepreneurial, conquering, creative, and contagious aspect of Christianity that is sweeping over the Body of Christ. We’ve tried to capture the spirit of this present wind in words that span the thrill of what we are experiencing personally with what can be prophetically anticipated in the marketplace through a movement of Kings.
2. Tired of programs? Try a foundation for a new lifestyle
Why go back to doctrinal foundations for marketplace ministry? Because working with God instead of performing for Him is fun, addictive, pleasurable, adventurous, joyful, meaningful, and rewarding. Converting from a “religious” to a “relational” motivational base returns us to our first love. You don’t have to wait for heaven to experience God’s blessings (Psalm 16:11). The Kingdom of God has come upon you (Matt. 12:28).
You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Ps. 16:11 NKJV)
3. God has one question for you, “What do you want?”
Kings are people who have healthy self-concepts. They sense permission from God to be bold, creative, competitive, decisive, and willing to take risks. Where do these qualities originate? From God. We are created in His image. Furthermore, Christians have rights. Kings think its normal to ask God for the desires of their heart.
But as many as received Him, to those He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name…. (John 1:12)
4. 70% of American’s live pay check to pay check
God can get you out! Putting the issue in simple terms, Kings cannot be content to live the typical, month-to-month, barely-get-by lifestyle. For Kings, it represents a poverty mentality that denies the abundance that God has for them—the very abundance that they require to carry out God’s business. For all Christians, and especially Kings, the strongholds that keep them from receiving God’s abundance must be removed.
Releasing Kings For Ministry in the Marketplace is a refreshing look at what God wants to do through us in the workplace. The authors model bridge building as a business leader and minister write together. They offer biblical insights into the roles of prophets, priests, and kings. Your assumptions will be challenged, your faith enlarged, and your courage increased as you read these words. Creativity, mentoring, and transformation will be the results in the lives of those leaders who experience Jesus Christ in their workplace. This will be a helpful resource for both workplace leaders and pastors.

5. You’re called to full-time ministry too!
God has prepared a generation of Joshua’s who are hungry for a tangible expression of their purpose (ministry) and receptive to the revelation of God’s Spirit Who will escort them (theology). The result is fruitful people naturally liberated into their passion for work, their compassion for people, and their love for the Lord Jesus. They have permission to dream (faith) and they are innovative, self-starters who see their dreams realized (works).
Courageous! Releasing Kings is a bold and exciting introduction to the new frontier of Marketplace ministry and evangelism. It is a must-read for business people and professionals who want to understand and empower their calling to proclaim the Good News to their community and the world.

6. An opportunity to “live your dream”
At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, Ask! What shall I give you?
1 Kings 3:5 NKJV
Here is the crux of facing the desires of your heart in the cold hard light of how much your heavenly Father loves you. Can you believe God to ask Him for the desires of your heart? Solomon was not an isolated case. The verse above is not taken out of context – It’s a theme throughout the Bible… and our lives.
Ask. You will find God in the desire of your heart. You will also find your life. Kings are willing to ask for the desires of their hearts. Servants never trust their hearts (or God) enough to ask and they live out their lives working for someone else’s dream.
The Church needs desperately to hear this message. I say, “Buy not one copy, get a copy into the hands of every business man and woman in your church—and outside it.” John Sandford
7. Health – when your “full-time job” is fulfilling your heart’s desire
You have a calling. It is built into your personality, your gifts, and the desires of your heart. God put it there. Until you activate the real desires of your heart, you never will be fully passionate about God or anything you do for Him. You’ll just be a servant going through the motions looking for a wage, a retirement, and an eternal pension. There’s more to life than that! It is people living out the desires of their hearts with a contagious sense of adventure, passion, and fruit.
Your assumptions will be challenged, your faith enlarged, and your courage increased as you read these words.…a helpful resource for both workplace leaders and pastors.
