BLC IS A MUST-ATTEND EXPERIENCE

BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY EXPO

Who should attend?

This event is for emerging and established entrepreneurs and business owners and is intended to provide direct access to opportunities to help grow revenue and to support business expansion. During the Business Opportunity Expo, attendees will speak face to face with companies and government agencies with procurement opportunities, business franchisers, key business service providers, and funding sources with access to capital.

This year we are adding a business matchmaking component. Many businesses are constantly challenged by finding methods to increase their revenue and finding the means to connect with major corporations and government agencies. This Business Matchmaking event is a prime opportunity for businesses to have a scheduled meeting with our exhibitors to provide the opportunity for more in-depth meetings and connections.

FINANCIAL BOOTCAMP

Financial Bootcamp will help you jumpstart your wealth-building goals. Come hear from financial experts as they educate individuals and business owners in concepts of personal finance and money management in order to eradicate generational poverty. In this session prepare to develop the skills and strategies that promote personal and financial responsibility related to financial planning, saving, investment, and charitable giving in the global economy.

In this session, we endeavor to connect money, people and resources to encourage financial freedom. Our goal in doing this is to allow access to better financial futures for our communities, eliminating poverty while establishing wealth for future generations. We do not want to teach you about prosperity; we want to show you how to prosper and avoid all the pitfalls within our minds that keep us from prospering.

  • Friday, March 20 – 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
BENEFIT DINNER & NETWORKING EVENT
Guest Speaker: Bishop T.D. Jakes

Join us at the inaugural Joseph Center Foundation Benefit Dinner to raise awareness and funding to provide scholarships for those striving to break the cycle of generational poverty through the pursuit of entrepreneurship. The proceeds from the event will enable us to expand our R.I.S.E. initiative to “turn prisons into boarding schools” and to establish partnerships that will provide Bible-based entrepreneurship training in developing economies domestically and internationally. Invest in creating thriving urban communities, breaking the dependency on government aid, and creating a wealth-building mindset that will transform lives and glorify God.

Special price to attend.

  • Friday, March 20 – 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Living Word Christian Center

7600 West Roosevelt Road

Living Word Christian Center7600 West Roosevelt RoadThe history of Living Word Christian Center dates back to 1988 when Bill and Veronica Winston conducted small evangelistic meetings at the Quality Inn Hotel located just west of downtown Chicago. Still living in Minnesota, they traveled to Chicago on weekends to hold two-day “Faith Crusades,” where the crowds would sometimes average less than 20 people. Pastor would teach the Word of God, and Sister Veronica would play the guitar for praise and worship. It was not long before the Lord spoke to Pastor Winston to leave Minnesota and move his young family to Chicago permanently. He obeyed and with only $200 -- but filled with the Word of God -- they moved to Chicago in the fall of 1988. Pastor Winston’s original vision in moving to Chicago was to start a Bible training school. However, as God directed his steps, he was led to start a church and founded Living Word Church of Chicago in 1989. With less than 50 members, the church began meeting in a humble store front located on Chicago’s West Side, at the corner of Lake and Pulaski streets. A year later the church moved to the nearby suburb of Forest Park, at 7306 West Madison Street. With this move in 1990, the church name was changed to Living Word Christian Center. But the church move was not without its challenges. After signing the lease, more than half the membership decided not to make the move to Forest Park. With a large monthly lease and only a handful of members. But with God as Pastor Winston’s source, not people, Pastor Winston faithfully confessed God’s Word for increase and church growth. New members steadily came each year, and the church’s growth soon led to the need for a still larger worship center. From 1994 through 1997, while searching for a permanent location, the church held its services at the Chez Roué Banquet Hall not far from Madison Street. The ministry eventually purchased the Forest Park Mall, a 33-acre shopping mall that had been in decline for several years. With about 5,000 members, the church held its first worship services in a vacant home improvement store within the mall on December 31, 1997, New Year’s Eve night. Today, Living Word Christian Center is a 20,000-member multi-cultural church that holds its services in a state-of-the-art worship center.
