The Ripple Effects was created by a Christian business man that had an idea. He thought that by helping Christian businesses become more successful they would be in a better position to help support their local church's mission and therefore help expand the Kingdom of God. The initial idea started with one on one coaching to businesses within the local church community. From there, the concept evolved into finding a way to connect these business members with the consumers of the local church community (the directory). The mission continued to grow from there and now into a larger vision of connecting these businesses from multiple churches through networking groups, workshops, regional meetings, and events used to train, support and motivate the Christian business person. Through this ministry many "Ripples" are created, business members connect and grow and then give back to support Kingdom growth.
