We recognize that proclaiming and modeling the gospel goes beyond the walls of a church. The CORE Cooperative is a funding and support mechanism that establishes community oriented businesses. We link up investors with entrepreneurial minded individuals who are serious about gospel ministry proclaimed through their work. Our concept is simple, funds invested into CORE are reinvested into businesses that are strategic to proclaim Jesus Christ. Those funds are then returned to CORE to be recycled into another gospel centered business plan.
However, we do not exist outside of the life of the local church. Businesses that start with a CORE Cooperative model must be sponsored and held accountable by a local congregation. For us, gospel partnership begins as the Spirit works in a church, goes from a church on mission, and returns to the church so that Christ is displayed and worshiped.
