THE PRAXIS COURSE is A VIDEO & DISCUSSION SERIES on redemptive entrepreneurship.
At Praxis, we believe the future of culture depends largely on the worldview of the next generation of founders, innovators, and creators. They have outsized influence on what we consume, believe, and desire—as they build products, services, brands, teams, and expressions that shape culture according to their vision for how the world should be.
Through a six-session video & discussion series, The Praxis Course aims to help a generation of leaders to develop an imagination for what we call "Redemptive Entrepreneurship"—leveraging personal and organizational power for the sake of others, leading and growing ventures that join God in the renewal of all things, in all sectors.
You've been invited to be part of a Praxis Course group by a friend who's volunteered to lead one. This page is to give you a better idea of what the Course is about—but as a participant you don't need to register. Just check out the site, let your leader know you're in, and they'll communicate with you directly about your first gathering.
If you have any questions the site doesn't answer, just contact us directly. Welcome to The Praxis Course!
frequently asked questions
Is this Course just for people working in startups?
Absolutely not! We believe culture creators are found in all different types of roles and environments. In fact, a variety of backgrounds, sectors, and even career stages can create a richer discussion and learning experience.
The Course was designed with several types of people in mind:
Early-stage founders: ambitious, high-capacity, working hard to survive in the startup culture, possibly verging on burnout and isolation
Aspiring entrepreneurs who want to “change the world” but might be unsure of their vocational path or options
Innovative organizational leaders at all levels who bring an entrepreneurial or "intrapreneurial" ethos into their work
Seasoned entrepreneurs and executives who want to keep learning and growing in faithful work as they mentor the next generation
Church leaders who want to support the entrepreneurs and innovators in their congregations
Artists, designers, and other creative professionals who have a vocational vision but don't connect to classic "faith/work" programs
Faith-skeptical but curious people in any of the above categories
Does it cost anything to participate?
Not a penny! The Praxis Course is supported by generous donors. Our mission at Praxis is to advance redemptive entrepreneurship, and we do this through programs, community, content, and ventures. The Praxis Course is one of the key ways we share and carry out that mission.
Do I need to commit to the full six sessions?
Yes, the Course was designed to cover a full conversation with your community, partial participation is discouraged. We crafted the experience in hopes that you would experience deeper understandings of your faith and make deeper connections with like-minded people, while remaining at a manageable length.
What kind of time & work commitment is required?
No preparation is required to fully participate in each session. We intentionally designed the Course so that everything happens during the group gatherings. No homework! (As adults, we still love hearing that, don’t we?) Each session lasts for about one hour and 15 minutes (~20 minutes of watching the video + 50 minutes of discussion).
What if I want more? Are there additional resources?
Absolutely! Praxis has been creating and accumulating key content from world-renowned speakers, authors, and practitioners who are pursuing the core ideas of Redemptive Entrepreneurship. In the footer of this site you can also subscribe to the Praxis News, our monthly email featuring the latest contributions and stories from our community.
