We equip and empower disciples to be Biblical tentmakers through training. People in all walks of life are searching for authentic relationships, significance, and success while struggling with how their faith is relevant to vocation and life.

Skills-Based Training

TENTMAKERS builds the confidence and character that compliments formal education with lifelong learning, significance and success,. Our programs include training on twelve key character-building skill sets including communication, learning and thinking, decision making and more.

What's in a Name?


Our name comes from the Apostle Paul who conducted his tentmaking trade (Acts 18:3) while furthering God’s Kingdom. We understand that working and serving others is a sacred calling from God. TENTMAKERS views work and ministry as one.
