In the workplace, it is often a challenge for some to balance their faith and business needs. Many business men and women lean on their religious beliefs to help them make decisions for their business.

Minister Tiffany Bethea saw a need to help business people use their faith to further their business endeavors and created “KingdomBoss: Where Faith and Business Collide.” KingdomBoss is a network for spirit-led authors, speakers, coaches, consultants, small business owners and entrepreneurs to build Christ-centered brands.

Bethea, says she created KingdomBoss because of a need she had as a business professional.  “Kingdomboss was a natural fusion of my two hats as an ordained minister and also a full-time marketing and brand consultant. I began to see the need for a space for people who desired faith-based business strategy and wanted to know what God said about business. Even though I ran from it initially, it has been an incredibly rewarding journey,” Bethea told the AFRO. She emphasized that KingdomBoss is, “for people who realize that we are created for community and that like the African proverb says, ‘’If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together.’ We are more than a network, we are a family.”

Bethea will host this year’s KingdomBoss Summit in Baltimore October 12 and October 13 at the Morgan State University Business Center. Guest speakers and presenters include: Pastor Toure Roberts, Dr. Karen Bethea, Jamal Miller and many others. Min. Bethea said this conference serves the needs of many. “Authors, speakers, pastors, coaches, consultants, small business owners and entrepreneurs, who are ready to increase their impact, influence and income to be in the room,” she said.  “ walk away with powerful clarity on what God has for them, create powerful new connections with other believers, and not only gain strategy for the next season but also a formal plan of implementation.”

KingdomBoss hosts other events and seminars throughout the year to help business owners develop their faith and brand. Bethea said she is grateful for the growth in membership and services the organization has seen in the past 2 ½ years of existence.   “Our main flagship is our membership program The Kingdomboss Society, which hosts monthly virtual trainings, networking events, personal coaching and many other business/ministry building services. We also host The Kingdomboss Summit in the fall each year as a time for people to form powerful connections and get the strategy to elevate their life and business to the next level,” Bethea said.

“We also offer free workshops and trainings throughout the year typically centered around the topics of business launch, brand development, sales and marketing.”

KingdomBoss has accomplished much already and Bethea said there is much more on the way.

“We are planning to expand next year with a division for children, our Jr. Kingdombosses.  We are also working on connecting our audience with capital to grow their business. Those are just a few of the great things coming ahead.”
