Hello Ministry Incubators community!

We’re rounding up another great week of posts and resources from within the social entrepreneurship world! Take a few minutes to peruse some articles, read about some great change-making organizations, and get excited about how these might help your own team get started.

  1. Everything you ever needed to know about forming an organization and a corporate structure. Don’t snooze on us yet – this article breaks down all the misconceptions around LLCs, non-profits, hybrids, and everything in between. A great skim of the trade-offs that exist between all the available options.
  2. How our experiences can shape transformative ideas. An inspiring story from an Echoing Green fellow who launched a social enterprise targeting race and injustice.
  3. Stretch your creative muscles and join the OpenIDEO workshop on how economic opportunities might be expanded for youth in East Africa. A great opportunity to practice the skills of design thinking in a cool context!
  4. Praxis Labs is an incredible organization supporting a network of Christian social ventures in both non-profit and for-profit capacities. Check out this short article on their leadership and projects!
  5. All the excitement for a small innovation firm in Detroit, Michigan looking to redesign Health and Human Services benefits programs. Check out Civilla’s podcast here!

First Day of School Feelings

First Day of School Feelings

There’s something magical about the first few days and weeks of school. There is so much possibility in new beginnings, fresh starts, new opportunities, and new friends. It is a time where anything could happen and there is always the possibility of things being different, better, at least more interesting, this time around. 

Sacred Systems

Sacred Systems

Systems can seem not only unsexy but rather unspiritual. But we at Ministry Incubators believe that there is a solid case to be made for the use of systems as foundational for our faith. 

Stolen Tomatoes

Stolen Tomatoes

So here’s the question, when the crop is stolen, do we plant the garden again next year? When we do fail, when our team falls apart, when our project fails due to circumstances that we couldn’t have planned for, and which very well might happen again, do we have it in ourselves to try again?
