To select and train the next generation of uncommon leaders.


We equip and empower disciples to be Biblical tentmakers who live out their God-given calling while transforming culture through Christ, one relationship at a time.


To raise up and train leaders of integrity with the compassion, courage and faith in Jesus Christ, who have the imagination, moral fiber and tenacity to lead effectively in all walks of life—-business, family, education, government, the Arts, media and the Church.

Our Name

Our name comes from the Apostle Paul who conducted his tentmaking trade while furthering God’s Kingdom (Acts 18:3).

Biblical tentmakers purpose to know Christ and love God. They:

  • Live a life-on-mission, in community, as disciples of Jesus

  • Lead while bringing out the best in others

  • Pursue lifelong learning

  • See work and ministry as one


Our programs include training on twelve key character building skill sets. Learning is from the modeling, discovery and practice of time tested principles. Some of these learning experiences take place at Wilderness North, a 1500-acre retreat, training and conference center in the Lake Superior National Forest in northeast Minnesota.

Transformational Training

TENTMAKERS training is drawn from Biblical wisdom and principles. It is:

  • Unique, powerful and transformational.

  • Led by a Christ-centered team with intensive interaction.

  • Conducted in an environment of affirmation, discipline, and encouragement.
