Economic Empowerment Summit

About Us


"Empowered by the Blessing"

About This Summit:

When God called automotive pioneers such as Henry Ford, Chrysler, General Motors, and other entrepreneurs like Motown’s Berry Gordy to the great city of Detroit, His plans for Detroit didn’t stop with them. God has even greater plans now! Despite the city’s economic downturn, I believe God still has a purpose for the city of Detroit. What He did for Detroit’s early titans of business, He’s ready to do once more but He needs people who are ready to step in and revitalize the city.

Once you are in the Kingdom of God, His blessing or anointing works with you. This anointing came on a man in the Bible named Gideon to lead an army small in number against a multitude. Gideon was the least and the poorest in his family, yet God elevated him. I call that Empowerment! God can take that same anointing and place you on top in one week.

On Friday, July 18 and Saturday, July 19, 2014, the Joseph Business School and Bill Winston Ministries will host the Detroit Economic Empowerment Summit at Straight Gate International Church. Our theme is “Empowered by the Blessing.” This summit is intended for those who are ready to rebuild Detroit and put this great city back on top. And we have assembled just the right line-up of outstanding speakers to empower you for that task. Joining me on Saturday will be nationally prominent speakers such as Michele Hoskins, Ken Brown, Dr. Dennis Kimbro, John Hope Bryant, and Grammy Award-winning recording artist, Donald Lawrence.

The Summit features several FREE events designed to give you the opportunities you need to advance financially and improve your life. On Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, join us at a Career Fair with 25 top companies that will be ready to hire on the spot; then from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm is the Business Opportunity Expo for emerging and established entrepreneurs and business owners. Gain direct access to over 25 companies with opportunities to help you grow revenue and support your business expansion efforts.

Saturday will be equally life transforming with daytime workshops that will focus on financial management, organizational strategy, entrepreneurship, and business certification; a dynamic evening guest speaker and finally yours truly will close out this two-day power-packed summit on Saturday night with a Healing Worship Service airing from 8:00pm to 9:30pm LIVE on THE WORD NETWORK.

God has big plans for Detroit and you are a part of that plan. Come expecting to hear from God on how you have been called to create a shift that will make lives better by generating new jobs, providing educational opportunities, and rebuilding economies to establish the Kingdom of God in every sphere of society. This summit is designed to create an atmosphere where those creative abilities can come forth.

You don’t want to miss this opportunity!
