Economic Empowerment Ministry

The mission of the Economic Empowerment Ministry is to empower our church members and the East Garfield Park community at large with the tools and skills to build financial stability, independence and wealth. We will provide education on capitalism, finance and economics to empower and encourage the development of small businesses, cooperatives and pursue Pastor Bailey’s vision of reentry training and employment for the formerly incarcerated. The Economic Empowerment Ministry will foster a new group of entrepreneurs by creating our own products and exploring options such as vegetable grow tents and fish farming. We will stress the importance of supporting businesses, individuals and politicians who support us.  We must exercise our power to recirculate our dollars, ensuring they return to those working, living and worshipping in the East Garfield Community.
