True life transformation happens only from the inside out

Paradigm Shift believes that true life transformation happens only from the inside out.


Addressing spiritual poverty is as important as addressing physical poverty. That is why Paradigm Shift’s unique model incorporates Biblical teachings into every structured interaction with entrepreneurs. During the first two 9-week modules, entrepreneurs learn Biblical principles through the Emmaus Road Course.


Running alongside the business training, entrepreneurs discover what the Bible says about community, family and business. Training sessions include the following topics:


Module 1

  • Pursuing Truth and Wisdom
  • Learning to Develop Character
  • Created for Work
  • Money Matters
  • Made for Relationship
  • My Spiritual Hunger
  • Conversations with God
  • Stewardship in My Life


Module 2

  • The Father Heart of God
  • Making Sense of Pain
  • Discovering Jesus
  • More Than Religion
  • A New Beginning
  • Exploring the Holy Spirit
  • Becoming a Person of Character
  • Designed To Worship

The Paradigm Shift program has equipped us to make a meaningful impact in our city and for the kingdom of heaven."

In Their Own Words

"We used to think our businesses were cursed because they failed. Now we realize we just didn't have the knowledge."
