this Course on redemptive mindsets is just a brief overview of the redemptive possibilities we can pursue as entrepreneurs, innovators, and creators.
We will keep you updated as we produce additional Course content.
Until then, here are the best ways to get more involved in the Praxis community (and scroll down for access to a bonus video by Andy Crouch!):
Implement the redemptive mindset in and through your work
PRAXIS BELIEVES THAT ENTREPRENEURS SEE A BETTER FUTURE AND PROCEED TO CREATE IT.
Based on what you've learned in this Course, what is God stirring in your heart to do? Think about how you might test a prototype version of a redemptive project or approach in your current work on in your free time. Take time to further develop your redemptive mindset in community with friends, co-workers, and your church community. Continue meeting or stay in contact with your Praxis Course group and let them know how your redemptive experiences are going.
LEAD your own GROUP
WHO ELSE CAN YOU SERVE BY TAKING THIS CONVERSATION FURTHER?
We hope you enjoyed this experience so much that you'd be interested in leading a group on your own! Just register as a Course leader (it's totally free) if you would like to help others in your community, church, venture, or school to develop a redemptive imagination for their work.
You don't have to lead the same kind of group you were in, either. (For example, if your group was made up of friends or colleagues, consider leading a small group or class at your church.) And consider challenging one or more of the other participants in your group to co-lead with you.
keep up with the praxis community
The Praxis Course highlights just some of the key ideas from practitioners in the Praxis community. Read The Praxis Journal, our digital magazine covering stories of the ideas, models, practices and people powering today's redemptive ventures; and follow the exploits of our ventures and programs through our social links.

COMMIT TO A SHARED SET OF PRACTICES
We invite you into our community of practice for redemptive entrepreneurship to commit to a shared set of practices that root our work in the truth that our most significant identity is not as entrepreneurs or leaders, but as children of God. We want to surrender our most powerful entrepreneurial capacities to Him, in six specific areas: our time, money, imagination, decision-making, power, and community.
We offer A Rule of Life for Redemptive Entrepreneurs for the Praxis community, and for anyone interested in faithfully pursuing a vocation as an entrepreneur, innovator, or creator.
Apply to be a fellow
WE BELIEVE THAT THE TYPE OF COMMUNITY THAT SURROUNDS FOUNDERS AND VENTURES IS THE PRIMARY FACTOR IN SHAPING THEIR HEALTH, VISION, IMPACT, CULTURE AND SUCCESS.
Our unique program is not a typical accelerator: it is global, cross-sector, non-residential, and non-equity based, designed to shape the trajectory of the business or nonprofit entrepreneur and their work through relationships—with our team, inspiring peers, generous mentors, our broad network, and values-aligned capital, all within a setting that is focused on the personal and spiritual formation of the founder.
We select 12 ventures into our program each year. Praxis Fellows can expect to have intimate interaction with mentors through small round table discussions and multiple custom-matched one-on-ones, as well as large-format opportunities to share their work, all over the course of three gatherings.
These intensive programs are for founders whose ventures are already in a growth stage in the market.

AUTHORITY & VULNERABILITY
Andy Crouch—Partner for Theology & Culture at Praxis
Andy shows us that to flourish as a human, we need to experience both authority and vulnerability; and to help others experience the same.
